Here's yet another cute, tasty, and easy Halloween recipe. My 3 1/2 year old keeps asking me if he can eat another monster. These things are hilarious. I love them! You can make any size creatures you want.
Look! Here's a family of 5. A papa, mama, and 3 kiddos. They're a good lookin' family aren't they?

8 oz bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped (I used a partial bag of chocolate chips and a T. of shortening)
1 can (5 oz) thin chow mein noodles
1⁄2 c. vanilla frosting (I used some melted white candy melts)
18 green jelly beans (I used M&M's)
18 small purple sugar ball candies (You can use any color!)
Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper or nonstick foil.
Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and melt on high in microwave 1 to 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Scrape chocolate into a large bowl; add noodles and gently toss with a rubber spatula until all the noodles are evenly covered in chocolate.
Drop heaping 1⁄4-cupfuls of noodle mixture into 9 haystacks on prepared cookie sheet. Let dry 1 hour at room temperature (or speed it up by refrigerating them 30 minutes until hard).
Put frosting into a small ziptop bag; snip off a tiny corner of the bag and pipe 2 dabs onto each creature and attach 2 jelly bean eyes. Pipe a dot in center of each eye and attach a candy ball in center. Let dry 1⁄2 hour.
