Spider Cookies will be your most delicious, gluten free treat of the season. Bake up a batch of these for your Halloween party!
There are several steps that make these cookies a long process to make. But before I scare you away, NONE of the steps are difficult! Most of the work is down time, which means it’s not actually work. And to make your life easier, you can always use store-bought eyes which will dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to make these spider cookies.
Halloween is one of those holidays where you can really have fun with your food. Creepy food, cute food, scary food, over the top food – it’s the holiday that food dreams are made of. I admit, I’ve never really done much with themed food in the past but I couldn’t pass up on making these cookies.
First of all, they’re kind of a party pleaser. How fun is it to say you ate spiders?! You don’t have to tell anyone they were chocolate ;) Second, my husband is a chocolate and peanut butter FANATIC. He’s crazy about it and I can never make enough treats with this flavor combo for him.
However, he’s kind of afraid of spiders. I am the designated spider exterminator in our house, so it was super fun for me to tell him that I made him some peanut butter cookies and he could find them in the freezer. I secretly wish I had a camera in the freezer (Alton Brown/ Good Eats style) just to see his reaction when he saw the spiders sitting on top. Surprise! Your favorite cookies with your least favorite thing in the world, EVER! I’m so mean. It’s so much fun. Enjoy!
