Halloween Hot Cocoa Bombs
This simple method for tempering chocolate will give you smooth, shiny hot cocoa bombs. Use a good-quality bittersweet chocolate with at least 70% cacao for best results. You can make the bombs ahead of time, but wait until right before serving to cover them in the webbing.

Cobweb Hot Cocoa
Black cocoa has little natural acidity, an impossibly black as midnight color and a rich chocolate flavor that tastes just like your favorite cream sandwich cookies (because it’s in that cookie too!) These three elements are ideal for making a very chocolaty but not bitter drink that’s scary enough for Halloween but tasty enough for any day.
