Chocolate Spider Cookies

It’s funny how something that totally creeps me out in real life can be one of my favorite Halloween decorations and now treats.  These creepy crawly Chocolate Spider Cookies won’t scare you, chance are they’ll make you smile!  These cute spiders are the perfect Halloween treat for parties, teacher gifts or just because.

I don’t think there is a holiday that goes by that I don’t spend time with my kids in the kitchen.  It’s one of those things that not only gives you the opportunity to make memories, but it’s also a great teaching opportunity.  Baking makes math concepts we are learning at school more fun and it’s a great way to spend quality time finding out about what’s going on in your kiddos lives.  And I have yet to hear moans and groans when I ask the kids to bake cookies with me.  It’s quite the opposite actually, my kids eagerly race to the kitchen to grab a spot at the kitchen counter and help mix and stir.

These chocolate spider cookies are lots of fun for the kids to make and chance are you already have most of the ingredients in your pantry to make them.  We used the Not So Spooky Spider Cookie recipe from Imperial Sugar to whip up these chocolaty morsels.

After all the ingredients are mixed let the kids help create their own not so spooky spiders.  Roll the chocolate dough into 1-inch balls.

Next, roll the balls in the chocolate sprinkles.  I’ll admit our sprinkles didn’t stick very well to our cookie dough. When we make these again I will probably use a little less flour than what the recipe calls for so that our dough is a little more sticky.

Take the pretzel sticks and stick four of them on each side for the spider legs.

Once the cookies are done baking take them out of the oven and add the malted chocolate balls and candy eyes while the cookies are still warm.

Aren’t they super cute and spooktacular!?!  Serve them with a mini jug of milk for a super fun Halloween treat. My kids and I had lots of fun baking these cookies and even more fun eating them.
