All you need is DIFFERENT types of candies, sprinkles, melted chocolate and Oreos to make them.

These cookies were so PRECIOUS that I was having a hard time biting into them although my little one devoured them in seconds…hahaha!

This is a great Halloween edible craft for kids and if you pre-cut the candy pieces in advance, the little ones can just assemble everything together like a puzzle.

So much FUN!

Spider Cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10 cookies
  • 10 Oreos or Nutter butter cookies (or any cream filled round cookies)
  • 1 cup melted chocolate
  • 15 licorice ropes
  • 10 rectangular licorice pieces
  • ½ cup sprinkles
  • 20 m&m candies
  • Scissors
  1. Separate the Oreo cookies so that you are left with a creamy side and a non-creamy side.
  2. Pour a blob of melted chocolate on the creamy cookie.
  3. Cut up some some licorice ropes with scissors and stick them on the chocolate blob. These will be the legs of the spiders.
  4. Then, cut out a “u” shape with red licorice rips. This will be the tongue of the spiders. Stick this onto the melted chocolate too.
  5. Now, press the non-creamy side of the cookie on top until it sticks into place. You will need to work fast before the chocolate hardens.
  6. Pour another blob of melted chocolate on top of the cookie and cover with sprinkles.
  7. Use some more melted chocolate to stick two m&m candies on top of the sprinkles. These will be the eyes of the spiders.
  8. And you are done!

Well, that’s all for today.
