    Spread cupcakes with icing. Press 3 Smarties into tops for spider bodies. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (50%) for 2 minutes 30 seconds, stirring with a metal spoon every 30 seconds, or until melted and smooth. Spoon chocolate into a snap-lock bag. Make a small snip in 1 corner. Pipe chocolate around Smarties to form spider legs and eyes. Set aside for 10 minutes or until set. Serve.
