Chocolate Chow Mein Noodle Cookies

These are fun to put out at a party because they look so unusual and I must say they are a bit addicting so make enough to keep for yourself.

Chocolate Chow Mein Noodle Cookies
Adapted from Giada De Laurentis recipe

18-20 cookies

1            12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips, Vegan
1            5-ounce can crispy chow mein noodles (about 2 1/2 cups)
3/4         cup salted and roasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2         cup finely chopped dried apricots ( or any other dried fruit)
1/8         teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional

Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.

Place the chocolate in a small bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.  Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 4 minutes.

Combine the noodles, almonds, apricot, cayenne pepper if using and melted chocolate in a large bowl.  Stir until all the ingredients are coated with chocolate.  Scoop the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop and allow the cookies to harden at room temperature, about 2 hours.  Store in airtight container at room temperature.
