Serves 12 • Ready in 30 mins, plus freezing


  • 350g Co-op 0% fat Greek style natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Co-op clear honey
  • 50g Co-op Irresistible Fairtrade 70% cocoa dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 10 chocolate honeycomb balls


  1. Line a large baking tray. Mix the yogurt, vanilla and honey until smooth, then spread out on the baking tray to a thickness of about 5mm. Put in the freezer for 4 hours, or until frozen solid.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Leave to cool a little, then spoon into a piping bag fitted with a 2mm round nozzle. Pipe lines across the bark, fanning out from the middle point of the longest edge. Connect the lines with piped curves of chocolate to create a spider’s web effect.
  3. Put two honeycomb balls together on different points of the web, and fix with a little melted chocolate. Pipe spider’s legs coming off each set.
  4. Return to the freezer until firm, then snap into shards and serve immediately.
