About this recipe: A super-fast and easy recipe to prepare for Halloween. Noodles are coated in molten chocolate cake covering, spooned onto greaseproof paper and allowed to set. You can also you use milk, white or dark chocolate, if you prefer.
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! - 22 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 27 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 01 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
