Rebecca Kolls knows how to throw legendary Halloween parties. Frighten your own friends with her simple, but scary, party recipes.


  • 1 package Hershey's chocolate chips
  • 1 package chow mein noodles
  • 1 package of red hot candies
  • 1 bag large marshmallows
  • 1 bag thin stick pretzels
  • Cooking Directions

    Melt chocolate on low heat in a double broiler and remove from heat. Thread 3 marshmallows on a pretzel and brush marshmallows with melted chocolate (painting on with pastry brush is easiest). Place chocolate covered marshmallows on parchment paper or wax paper.

    Randomly insert individual chow mein noodles until desired "creepy" look is achieved. While chocolate is still wet, position two red hots on front, for eyes. Allow chocolate to harden and place caterpillars on a plate.
