When we were in our teenage years, one of the treats Mum used to make around Christmas for parties was chocolate spiders. So tasty, but eat too many and you were soon feeling a bit squeamish.

The other day while shopping I had a craving for some, I had a general idea on what was needed, peanut butter, chocolate and Chang’s noodle. I was about to ring Mum and get the recipe¬†until I looked on the back of the noodle packet and there it was.

Only three ingredients needed and a short amount of time.

Peanut butter, noodles and chocolate

While making these I thought of another peanut butter and chocolate sweet that I like, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. All you would need to make your own version is the little paper cups, smooth peanut butter and leave out the noodles, SIMPLES!!

All measurements are metric and use Australian Standards sizing for spoons and cup measures.

The ingredients as found on the packet:

1 packet Chang’s Original Fried Noodles

200 grams Chocolate, milk OR dark ( I used milk)

2 Tablespoons crunchy peanut butter

MY METHOD:

Place peanut butter and chocolate in a clean dry bowl. Remember chocolate hates moisture, so ensure none gets in the bowl while you are melting it.

Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water and melt, stirring occasionally to combine.

Fold in the noodles to coat, being careful not to crush them too much.

Lay a sheet of silicone paper(GladBake or similar) on a tray and using two teaspoons place the mixture on to the paper. You can also set these in little patty cases if you like.
