Chocolate Cookie Spiders

Not everything needs to be complicated or time-consuming. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best! These chocolate cookie spiders definitely fit the bill!


  • Any kind of cookies, homemade or from cookie dough
  • Mini Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • Candy eyes
  • Chocolate chips


  1. Bake Cookies as directed. As you pull them out of the oven use a teaspoon-measuring spoon to make divots in the middle of the cookie and then allow the cookies to cool completely.
  2. While you are waiting for your cookies to cool, place a cup of chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave them in intervals of 12 seconds until they are completely melted. You will use this melted chocolate to drizzle the legs onto the cookies.
  3. Next, place Your Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the middle of the cookie where your divot is. By placing a dab of melted chocolate on the back of the candy eyes, you can then stick them into place on the peanut butter cups.
  4. Lastly, use your melted chocolate to drizzle the spiders legs onto the cookies. Let the melted chocolate dry.
