Easy Halloween Spider Cookies Hip2Save

If you’re looking for a fun way to decorate cookies for Halloween (perfect if you want to involve your kiddos as well!), check out these cute and easy to make spider cookies! These yummy treats look spooky and can be customized to whatever type of cookie you’d like to use. I used malt ball candy and chocolate covered peanuts but you could swap those out for similarly shaped candy.  These spiders also make cute cupcake toppers!

Easy Halloween Spider Cookies

(Recipe Inspired by


17.5 oz pouch Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix or your own favorite cookie recipe
15 malt ball candies
15 chocolate covered peanuts or raisins
tube of black or brown decorator icing (I used Cake-Mate)
tube of red decorating gel
Easy Halloween Spiders on cookies
Directions: Bake cookies according to package instructions. I made 15 larger sized cookies, but you could adjust the size and make them smaller. When cookies are still warm from the oven, move them to a cooling rack and place one malt ball and one chocolate covered peanut on top of cookies and press them in a little. When the cookie is completely cool, add the spider legs with icing and a dot of red gel on the malt ball.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
