Sugar Swings! Serve Some: Mini Fudge Bites with Spiders!

Mini Fudge Bites with Spiders!

Last Halloween treat for the season - little itty bitty fudge bites with some spiders.  Not quite sure they actually qualify as spiders - so maybe we'll just call them random bugs.  I had some left over fudge from the retro joystick fudge so thought I'd squeeze another treat out of them.

I cut them into little mini fudge bites but they were a little plain on their own.  I have melting candy wafers in almost every color they come in, so thought spiders in Halloween colors would be a fun addition to the almost black fudge.

Just melt a few discs of each color in a freezer bag in the microwave until just melted (10 second intervals - this usually takes about 3 nukes for about 10-12 wafers for me).  

Bug eyes were added with a black food writer.

And that's pretty much it!  Super quick and super fun for a last minute Halloween treat.

Put them out on a platter or add a handful to plastic baggie for favors.  OK that's it for Halloween for me, onto Turkey Day!

Thanks for stopping by and Have an Awesome Week!

Fudge Recipe

  • 1 - 16 ounce can of chocolate frosting 
  • 12 ounces (about 2 cups) of black candy melts/wafers
  • 1/2 cup of candy melts/wafers in white, green, purple, orange

  1. Microwave black wafers in microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals until just melted.  Stir well until smooth.
  2. Stir in frosting.
  3. Add to lined 9X9 baking pan.  Smooth and refrigerate until hardened (about 15 minutes)
  4. Cut into mini fudge bites.
  5. Melt candy wafers of each color in a freezer bag in the microwave until just melted in 10 second intervals.  This usually takes about 3-4 nukes for about 1/2 cup of wafers for me - it could me more/less depending on your microwave. 
  6. Snip a small corner and while candy is melted, pipe on spider/bugs.  Let candy harden.
  7. Add black eyes with black food writer.
