Original recipe yields 20 spiders



  1. Chop the chocolate confectioners' coating and place into a heatproof bowl over simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the chow mein noodles so they are evenly distributed. Spoon out to desired size onto waxed paper. Let cool completely before storing or serving.

This was a hit for my son's halloween party. I couldn't find chocolate confectioner's so I used a bag of semisweet morsels instead- just melted it in the microwave and added the noodles to it. I used a fork to scoop out the noodles onto wax paper - you have more control that way!



Make sure you have enough of the chocolate coating as it will be hard to make these stick together if it isn't "wet" enough. Also, you can pop the mix in the microwave if the chocolate starts drying too much as you make the spiders. I used butterscotch chips (point side down) for the eyes. My daughter said that they looked like spiders or mummy-babies, and I think if you used white chocolate coating, it would really look like a mummy head (I'd use chocolate chips for eyes with that one). Very easy and popular.



I believe ECS's review is referring to a different recipe on this site called "Edible Spiders" so don't hold those comments against this cute and easy treat.
