Spider Cookies

Halloween is just around the corner. It happens to be my favorite time of year. I have the best memories of my fun filled days trick or treating with friends and gathering as much candy as we could. Luckily, I have passed on the love of all things Halloween to my kids. They were thrilled to see me making a new Halloween treat. These spider cookies are so easy to make and turned out just adorable. These would be fun for a Halloween party or just to have at home around the day. They do have peanut butter in them so they would not be a good idea to send to school!

Spider Cookies

1 roll of peanut butter cookie dough

1 set of candy eyes

Reeses chocolates

meltable chocolate (I used chocolate chips)

Spider Cookies

What You Do

  • Bake your peanut butter cookies as directed.
  • While the cookies bake, get the candy wrappers off and ready to go. Get the eyes ready too. I dare you not to eat one of the Reeses candies!!!!
  • As soon as the cookies come out of the oven place one Reeses┬ácandy upside down and gently press into the cookie to form the body of the spider.
  • Quickly add eyes on each body (the upside down candy). The chocolate melts fast so the eyes are easy to put on!
  • I put the cookies on a plate and put them in the fridge for about 10 minutes to let the candy harden a little. (You don’t have to do this!) It was a hot day in Texas and I didn’t want totally melted spiders!
  • To make the legs you will need to melt some chocolate (I used chocolate chips). I carefully stirred the chocolate every 20 seconds so it wouldn’t burn. When it was melted, I placed the chocolate in a baggie and cut a small tip to add some legs. Go fast, as the chocolate will harden fast!
  • I placed my cookies back in the fridge to set again (but not necessary!) My kids wanted one and I wanted the cookies to be set and not melted.

These spider cookies are perfect for Halloween!

They turned out so cute and perfect for Halloween! My kids were begging to eat one ­čÖé
