Last minute chocolate spiders

Picture this. It’s 4pm on a Saturday afternoon and you’ve just got a phone call. Your friends are having an impromptu BBQ at 6pm and because you always bring the sweets they’ve asked you to bring something for dessert. The problem is you are currently watching Real Housewives of Beverley Hills and really don’t want to hang out in the kitchen for the next two hours.

Solution? Super simple chocolate spiders!


1 packet of original fried noodles (from the Asian aisle in your supermarket)
2 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter or Gianduja
200grams Belgian dark chocolate

1. Microwave dark chocolate and peanut butter or Gianduja in a microwave safe bowl for about 60 seconds on high. If not melted, then microwave again in 5 second intervals.
2. Mix well until it is a smooth paste.
3. Add noodles and coat them well.
4. Spoon the mixture onto a grease-proof paper, or into individual paper patty pans.
5. Place in refrigerator until set.

This recipe will make about 15-20 chocolate spiders, the perfect amount for a BBQ with friends!
