Halloween calls for fun treats, and these Spider Cookies are definitely creepy, crawly fun. They’re easy to make, with a mixed whipped frosting sandwiched between 2 chocolate cookies, and perfect for a kids’ Halloween party. Did I mention they’re tasty, too?
Spook up a surprise plate of these and prepare for your kids to greet you with squeals when they come home from school. They might look creepy and crawly, but with more eats than shrieks, there’s nothing here to be afraid of!
They are a little messy, I will say, especially with the chocolate cookies I used which had a hole in the middle. I’m sure you can find a better cookie, though, that wouldn’t make such a mess.
- Chocolate cookies
- 1 tbsp chocolate frosting
- 1 tbsp Cool Whip
- Black licorice
- White chocolate chips
- Take a tbsp of chocolate frosting and mix until smooth. Fold in Cool whip.
- Cut your licorice down the middle lengthwise. I found a clean pair of kitchen scissors worked best for this.
- Apply a layer of frosting mix on the bottom side of one cookie.
- Arrange your black licorice across the frosting for your spider legs, letting the frosting mix act as your glue. There should be 4 legs on each side per spider.
- Top with your other cookie.
- For its eyes, cut the pointed tip off your white chocolate chips. Apply a small amount of frosting mix on the bottom of your chip and apply on the top of your spider cookie. Dot a small amount of frosting mix with a toothpick in the middle of your chip.
