Scary Spider Snacks

Ok, maybe not so scary. How about making some cute spider snacks for the kids this Halloween? I originally found this recipe on and made this fun food for my daughter’s 16th birthday costume party. They quickly came together and were gone by night’s end.  Here’s what you do:

Spider Snacks

  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 5 ounces chow mein noodles – maybe less
  • M&M’s plain chocolate candy, for the eyes
  1. Melt chocolate chips over a double boiler.
  2. Stir in chow mein noodles. Keep adding noodles until you think you have enough to cover all with chocolate.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper.
  4. Add 2 M&M’s on top of noodles, for spider eyes.
  5. With a toothpick, add a drop of chocolate in the middle of each M&M eye.
  6. Note: Add 2-4 T water, if needed, to thin chocolate chips.

And there you are. Terrific Halloween snacks that are frugal, fast and fun. Yum!

I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

  1. Great idea! I make these at Easter as a nest for mini eggs. I’ll make some to give away for Halloween night. The girls will love them. You are a genius.

  2. My mom used to help us make these (minus the eyeballs) for our teacher’s Christmas presents. Brought back some good memories for me.

    Very cute, I might make some of these for Halloween/my birthday. Even though I’m not entertaining any kids 🙂
