Introduction: Crunchy Chocolate Spiders

this 'ibles a little late for Halloween but  i am Australian and i don't celebrate it!
i made these for my nieces Halloween birthday party and they are so simple, and quick to make!!

these crunchy, chocolaty arachnids don't take long to whip up and make a spooky party treat! 

Step 1:

for your spiders you will need

a block of chocolate (milk or dark preferably) (about 200-300 grams)
two tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
crunchy noodles
(you can find these in Asian supermarkets  Or Asian isle of your grocery store)
small round  candies (i used mini M&M's)

baking paper (waxed paper)
a baking tray
a microwave/a saucepan on the stove
a table spoon
a mixing bowl (microwave safe)
spatula or wooden spoon

Step 2: Melting

break your chocolate into pieces and place them in a microwave safe bowl add peanut butter and microwave at thirty second intervals until melted and smooth, mix well

( i didn't add a picture of melting it as taking a photo of a microwave is hard!)

Stove top version

break up chocolate into pieces, place in saucepan with peanut butter and stir over low heat until melted and smooth
pour into bowl

Step 3: Make 'em Crunchy!!

add crunchy noodles to chocolate mixture and fold in so not to break noodles up to much
use spatula to scrap mixture from sides of bowl

Step 4: Its Aliveeee

line baking tray with waxed (baking) paper

spoon teaspoonfuls of mixture onto the tray (aww, lil spiders)
add matching eyes before chocolate sets
refrigerate until firm and enjoy!!!!

I just made these (for the kids, honest!) It took literally 5 minutes from start to finish. A short stay in the freezer to harden them up and we, I mean the kids were eating them. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think i can get a picture if i make them at school. Our school bans pretty much all personal electronics, so taking a picture would be pretty impossible. I will see though.
