2 c Chocolate chips,semi-sweet – Divided
1/2 c Crispy-rice cereal
1/4 c Shredded coconut
1 1/2 c Chow mein noodles
Cake decorator frosting = in tube; if desired
Melt 1 cup of chocolate chips in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Mix in the cereal and the coconut. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto waxed paper for the spiders’ bodies. Melt the second cup of chocolate chips. Gently stir in chow mein noodles. When chocolate is cooled, pick noodles out one by one and attach them to the spider bodies for legs (8 to a spider). Add dots of frosting for eyes, if desired. Leftover chocolate noodles can be made into more spider cookies.
