Creepy Crawly Spider Cookies

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1-1/2 cup chow mein noodles
1 small tube white decorator frosting

Place 1 cup of chocolate chips in a 2 to 4 cup glass measure. Heat on high in the microwave for 1 minute. Remove, stir, and heat on high for 1 minute. Let set for 1 minute and stir until chips are melted. Or melt chocolate chips in a heavy saucepan over low heat until melted. Mix in the cereal and the coconut. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper for the spider bodies. Melt the second cup of chocolate chips. Gently stir in chow mein noodles (being careful not to break noodles up). Pick noodles out one by one and attach them to the spider bodies for legs (8 to a spider). Add dots of frosting for eyes.
