Creepy Halloween Centipedes Recipe

Bugs, Worms, and creepy things that fly are often themes for Halloween treats. Of course, nobody really eats those things (hopefully), but its fun to make foods that look like them, especially for the kids. These Creepy Halloween Centipedes are not really creepy or scary, and they dont spend any time in cool, damp, and dark places; actually they are delicious! Bella and MaKaylee made this batch of Creepy Centipedes in less then 30 minutes, and they were devoured in less time than that.
These bugs are kid-friendly and can be made with minimum adult supervision. Its always a good idea to have an adult around while kids are using the microwave, but other than that, the kids can do everything by themselves. (For a great list of Cooking Rules for Kids, visit Bellas website, Isabella Cooks.)

The kids can use their imagination for decorating these centipedes; if mini chocolate chips are available, they can be sprinkled on the top to make spotted centipedes. Black sanding sugar adds a black sparkle. M&Ms can be used in bright colors for eyes, or red cinnamon candies can also be used as eyes. Black licorice strings can be used for antennas.

36 Creepy Halloween Centipedes
1 12 oz. package butterscotch chips, (2 cups)
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cups salted peanuts
5 cups chow mein noodles
Reeses's Pieces, for eyes
Black sanding sugar, (optional)
  1. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or waxed paper.

  2. Mix the butterscotch chips and peanut butter in a microwaveable container; microwave 2 minutes.

  3. Stir the mixture until melted, microwaving in 20 second increments if the chips aren't fully melted.

  4. In a large bowl, mix the peanuts and chow mein noodles.

  5. Pour the butterscotch mixture over the chow mein noodle mixture and stir until well-coated.

  6. Spoon the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets in log shapes (centipede shapes).

  7. Pull a few noodles out on each side to resemble legs.

  8. Press two Reese's Pieces into the coating at the front of each centipede for eyes.

  9. Sprinkle lightly with sanding sugar if using.

  10. Let the centipedes sit in the refrigerator or a cool place for a few minutes to set. Alternately, they will set up at room temperature, but it takes an hour or two.

  11. After they are set, the centipedes can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for several weeks.
