Chocolate Spiders Meringue ghosts? Check. Jack o’lanterns? Check. Chocolate spiders? Oh wait, here they come – straight from the pages of Sharon Bowers’ fun new cookbook, “Ghoulish Goodies.”

CHOCOLATE SPIDER CLUSTERS
Makes about 24
Ingredients:
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups chow mein noodles
¼ cup red hots or red mini M&Ms

Directions:
1. Line 2 baking sheets with wax paper or parchment. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in a microwave oven on high power 60 seconds; stir well. If not quite smooth, continue to heat in two or three 10-second bursts, stirring well after each burst.

2. Stir chow mein noodles into melted chocolate and drop mixture by tablespoons onto 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 about 20 minutes to cool and harden. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
