Trick or treat?! Serve up a web of creepy, crawly candy spiders for a sweet Halloween surprise.
These easy-to-make spidery clusters get their spooky stare from a pair of gleaming red candy eyes. If you have time before the chocolate sets up, pull a few chow mein noodle “legs” upward from each cluster to wave around. Makes about 24 spiders.
Put the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl, and melt the chocolate in the microwave: Heat on high for 60 seconds, and then stir well. If it’s not quite smooth, continue to heat in two or three 10-second bursts, stirring well after each burst. (Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate, stirring frequently, in a double boiler, over just-simmering water. Avoid overheating, which can cause chocolate to seize up into a stiff mass.)
Stir the chow mein noodles into the melted chocolate and drop the mixture by tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Press 2 red candies onto one edge of each cluster to make eyes and lift a few chow mein legs up to give a spidery impression. Refrigerate to cool and harden, about 20 minutes, and serve chilled. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
