Halloween Spider Cookies
Anyone who knows me knows that Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! I go all out on Halloween – the decorations, the costumers and THE FOOD!
That is why I love, love, love these Easy Halloween Spider Cookies! They are cute, easy to make and the kids adore them! These easy Halloween spider cookies will for sure be a hit with your kids! They are crazy easy to make and super delicious!!
These Spider Cookies are also a great project for your kids classroom Halloween Parties. What is so great is that they get to make them and then eat them! Kills two birds with one stone – project and treat!
We used our 3 ingredient cake mix cookies for this recipe. They are delicious and take less than 15 minutes to make! If you don’t want to make your own cookies, you can even use store bought cookies or pre-made refrigerated cookie dough. That works awesome too!
While I am mostly about the food for Halloween, I also love to decorate. If you are looking for an easy Halloween decoration, be sure to try our Tomato Cage Ghosts. They are a great decoration for your front porch or lawn.
