Easy Spider Cookies

Sunday, October 25, 2015

About a month ago, Henley walked into a spiderweb.  Since then, everywhere we go, she points them out and exclaims "Spider! Spider"!  Being that it's Halloween season, there are spiders everywhere and she loves them! I don't get it, but it's really cute.  I saw these cookies on Pinterest last year and knew I had to make some for her.  


I am not the best at decorating cookies/cakes, but these are so simple and so cute, anyone can make them!  If your kiddos are old enough to help, this is a great baking project for you to do together. Or, you could just surprise them with these cute cookies like I did! 

Easy Spider Cookies



Ingredients: 

• Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix (or your favorite peanut butter cookie dough)
• Dove Chocolate Eyeballs (or any round chocolate candy you can find) 
• Candy eyeballs
• Black or brown decorator icing 

Directions: 

1.  Mix your cookie dough according to the directions on the package (or your own recipe).  You could also use premade cookie dough.  

2.  Roll the cookie dough into 1in. balls and bake according to package/recipe directions.  While baking, unwrap your chocolate candies. 

3. When cookies are done, place a chocolate ball in the center of each one and press down gently. 

4.  Allow the cookies to set a few minutes and then place two eyeballs into the chocolate.  

5.  Once cookies are cool, use your decorator icing to draw legs on each cookie.  

6.  Enjoy!  Store in a single layer in an airtight container.  



As you can see, the girls enjoyed them very much! I hope you do, too!
