Halloween Spider Cookies

Halloween Spider Cookies
The Old Farmer's Almanac for Kids


black licorice, cut into 1-inch-long pieces
chocolate sandwich cookies
chocolate frosting
miniature chocolate-coated candies


You just need Oreos (or any chocolate sandwhich cookie), black licorice for the “legs” of the spider, 8 mini-M&M’s (or similar candy) for the “eyes,” and chocolate frosting or something similar to get the eyes and legs to stick.

  1. Take six to eight pieces of licorice (depending on the size of the cookies) and push them into the sides of each cookie.
  2. Dab a small amount of chocolate frosting on miniature chocolate-coated candies and stick them on the cookie to look like eyes.
  3. Makes 1 critter per cookie.
