Chocolate Spider Webs

This is so simple, yet so delicate and pretty. It's also a reminder to me that the spider is very artistically talented!  Way more so than me!!
Chocolate Spider Webs!
(to make 1 spider) 
 
12 Thin Pretzel Sticks
1 Gummie Spiders
2 blocks of White Chocolate( or something similar)
Chop some of the white chocolate, and
melt the white chocolate in a double boiler.
To make your own double boiler, place a small saucepan
over a large saucepan. Put a couple inches of water in 
the large pan and bring the water to a low boil.
Make sure the top sauce pan sits on the large pan, 
and does not fall in.
While the chocolate is melting, set your pretzels
on a piece of parchment paper, on a baking 
sheet, to look like a wheel spoke.
Fill a pastry bag with a #3 (Wilton) tip. Pipe a center
that will connect all the pretzel spokes. 
Then starting at the center, make circles around
the pretzels, and continue the circles all the way out.
Place a spider in the center of the web.
Put in the refrigerator(still on the baking sheet)
until it chills and hardens.
Once hard, carefully peel off the parchment paper.
Happy Halloween!!
