Easy Halloween Spider Cookies

Easy Halloween Spider Cookies

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

1

Bake cookies according to package instructions.

2

I made 15 larger sized cookies, but you could adjust the size and make them smaller.

3

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.

4

When the cookie is completely cool, add the spider legs with icing and a dot of red gel on the malt ball.

halloween spider cookies

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! Recipe Inspired by CherylStyle.com.

My kids loved helping me make these! They turned out super cute and I thought they were so simple to make! Serve the cookies on a platter with a fake spider and you have the perfect treat for a Halloween party. Enjoy!

    I assume with the red this is a black widow spider… goes right with the peanut…eek.
    Cute cookies though

    • Erin

      Ah, thanks. I couldn’t figure out what it was supposed to be. Took me a while to figure out what the red gummy worms in the last post were supposed to be, too.

      • ihearthip

        lol Still trying to figure it out. It’s a black widow, but how does that correlate with the peanut?

        • Tiffany H

    Our school won’t let us bring any items with peanuts in them, boo!

        It’s def a recipe that’s just a jumping off point & very creative- can absolutely be modified to suit whatever dietary needs or preferences- thanks Lina for another great idea!

    Is it pathetic that I wouldn’t ever make
    these due to my severe fear of
    Spiders???!?!? Lol.
