Chili-Chocolate Spider Cupcakes
A parade of chili-chocolate ganache spiders have got enough kick for a serious bite.
Notes: Sift cocoa if lumpy. This batter makes a tad more than might fit in a standard cupcake cup. Use big liners, or fill normal sized cupcake cups to 3/4 full and bake extra cupcakes if desired. A scoop or spoons can be used to portion the chili ganache instead of a pastry bag. Don't chill ganache balls too firm or you'll have trouble sticking in the legs.
