Making spider cookies is a fun Halloween activity to do with family and friends. Kids really get a kick out of making these critter cookies and then munching them up!
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.
- Take six to eight pieces of licorice (depending on the size of the cookies) and push them into the sides of each cookie.
- Dab a small amount of chocolate frosting on miniature chocolate-coated candies and stick them on the cookie to look like eyes.
- Makes 1 critter per cookie.
