Here come these spiders, their eyes popping out at you. These spider confections, more than two-inches wide, are the work of Marc Aumont, the executive pastry chef of Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate. Their plump marshmallow bodies sit on cookie bases, with caramel ganache heads and eight spindly legs, all coated with chocolate. They are available in the shop now.
