While Halloween is about spooky, that doesn’t necessarily mean that every trick or treat you do has to be gory and creepy. In fact? They can be rather cute if you get creative enough! Take these “Spooky” Spider cookies for instance! They’re just creepy enough to be cute, but they’re perfect for any Halloween gathering!
Spooky Spider Cookies
You will need:
- Cookie dough of your choice.
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup
- Candy Eyes
- Chocolate Chips
Bake the cookies according to the recipe or directions. You can use a store bought refrigerated dough or a homemade cookie recipe if you prefer. I used peanut butter refrigerated dough just for the sake of simplicity. As you pull them out of the oven, use the back of a teaspoon to create a small divot in the middle of the cookie for the peanut butter cup to sit down in then allow to cool completely.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Be sure to stir in between until they’re smooth and creamy.
Place a dab of the chocolate drizzle in each cookie divot then top with an upside down Reese’s cup. The dab of chocolate will help keep the peanut butter cup in place.
Using 2 more dabs of melted chocolate, attach the candy eyes to the peanut butter cups. Then, use your chocolate drizzle to make spiders legs on the cookie. I used the smallest tip on my Wilton cake decorating set and it worked great! Let the chocolate harden and enjoy!
