Quick N Easy to make, these little BUGGERS are GREAT for your next Halloween Party! Kids love these yummy treats, but don't think the adults won't like them, because they are a hit with both young and old! Serving size varies, depending on how big you make the spiders, and how many of the noodles you use along with the chocolate.
- 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 (5 ounce) canla choy chow mein noodles (may not need all of them)
- M&M's plain chocolate candy, for the eyes
- Melt chocolate chips in microwave. Check after 1 minute to make sure they don't start burning. Stir, then put back in for 20 sec. intervals until completely melted.
- Stir in Chow Mein noodles. Keep adding noodles until you think you have enough to cover all with chocolate.
- Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.
- Add 2 M&M's on top of noodles, for spider eyes.
- Note: Add 2-4 T water, if needed, to thin chocolate chips.
These are SO yummy!! I made a couple of changes by adding 3 T. of peanut butter to the chocolate chips when I melted them and stirring quartered mini marshmallows in with the chow mein noodles. I think I should have added a few more chow mein noodles because mine looked more like chocolate blobs than spiders, but they were still cute and most important they tasted delicious :)
Cute, fun and easy! I am trying to use up what I have in the cupboard and I had just about 5 oz of chow main noodles, so this worked out well. My girls thought they were adorable and they taste good too! I have a suggestion though--I wouldn't add water to the chocolate chips--that will make them seize up and you will have a big, huge mess. I would use shortening to thin the chocolate. Start out with 1-2 tsp. and add up to about 1 TBS. Most of the time if I want to dip stuff in chocolate, I have to add a bit of shortening. Thanks for a cute, sweet recipe! KCShell
Yum! Made with milk chocolate chips and called them "monsters" instead of spiders because I made them into small blobs. Followed other reviewer's advice and added a little bit of shortening to the melted chocolate. They're really good frozen also!
