Halloween Spider Cookies
Halloween Spider Cookies are the easiest and cutest Halloween dessert ever! All you need is your favorite cookie, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, candy eyes and some chocolate drizzle!
let cookies cool
Make your own, use refrigerated cookie dough or use my 3 ingredient cake mix cookies (see link above)
Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Minis
Chocolate Candy Melts
Bake cookies as directed.
As soon as you pull them from the oven, use the bottom of a teaspoon measurer and gently press a divot into the cookie.
Let the cookies cool completely.
Melt the candy melts and place either in a pastry bag or use a zip lock baggie and cut of the corner.
Take a Reese’s and place some melted chocolate along the bottom and press the Reese’s onto the divot in the cookie.
Let the Reese's set and dry.
Take your candy eyes and place a dab of melted chocolate on the back and place on the side of the Reese’s .
Use the melted chocolate to pipe "spider legs" on the cookie.
Let all of the chocolate dry, serve and enjoy!
Serve and enjoy
I used the back of a spoon to make a little divot in the cookie. This gives a nice place to rest the peanut butter cup. You can also use the end of a wooden spoon. Totally optional step.
If you don't have a pastry bag, grab a ziplock baggie and put the chocolate in it. Cut the bottom corner of the bag off (just a little tiny corner). This will work great too!
are a lifesaver. They will make putting the eyes on so much easier. They are great to have on hand for other decorating projects as well.
Chill the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups before you begin. It will make them much easier to work with because they won't get all melty!
