Spider Cookies

Halloween is approaching and so I made some of my Aunt H's spider cookies for Michael and his work buddies. They were having a topping off day so I put some green peanut M&Ms on the top to be the (co. name) hardhats, LOL.

These are so easy to make.

1 12oz bag of semisweet chocolate chips
1 can of crunchy chow mein noodles
Small candies or nonpareils (I used the green M&Ms this time) - totally optional

1. Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave according to the directions on the package.
2. Once the chips are melted, stir in the chow mein noodles to coat them in the chocolate.
3. Using 2 spoons, scoop out some of the noodles and place the "spiders" on wax paper to cool and set.
4. If putting decorations on, do this before the chocolate sets so that the candies stick.

These cookies also look like nests so you could make them at Easter and use jelly beans for eggs.
