Looking for something fun to do with the kids over Halloween?

How about cooking up some of these spooky spider chocolate cakes which will be a hit at any Halloween party.


  • 80g almond butter
  • 80g honey
  • 50g butter or coconut oil
  • 40g hazelnuts
  • 30g puffed quinoa
  • 30g puffed brown rice
  • 20g buckwheat groats (optional)
  • 20g raw cacao powder (or coco powder)
  • 10g milled flaxseed


  • Baking tray
  • Food processor / blender
  • Mixing bowl
  • Spatula
  • Saucepan
  • Muffin cases


Nuts, Dairy (optional)



1 Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan assisted)
2 Scatter the hazelnuts and buckwheat groats on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 7 minutes
3 While they are toasting make your sauce by melting the almond butter, honey, raw cacao powder and butter (or coconut oil) in a saucepan on a low heat, stirring regularly
4 Tip the sauce into a mixing bowl
5 Next place your toasted hazelnuts and buckwheat groats in a food processor or blender and blitz until ground
6 Pour into your mixing bowl and add the milled flaxseeds, puffed quinoa and puffed brown rice
7 Stir really well until all of the sauce is combined with the dry ingredients
8 Next, place a muffin case in your palm and put a large tablespoon of the mixture in it. Push the mixture down firmly with the back of a spoon - this is an important step that will stop your spiders crumbling later. Repeat until all the mixture is finished
9 Place the muffin cases in the freezer for 10 minutes and then remove and decorate as spiders! Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Fun fact! Puffed quinoa gives extra nutritional punch and can be bought online (e.g. buywholdfoodsonline) but can be swapped with puffed rice which is available in supermarkets

Buckwheat groats are available to buy online and give a lovely crunch to recipes but aren’t essential
