Images of “spider” cookies have been floating around Pinterest so we decided to give them a try. They were tricker than we thought and might be frustrating for kids to try, but they sure will enjoy gobbling them up! They would be cute arranged on a plate for a Halloween party.
Use your favorite chocolate chip cookie mix or even prepackaged dough from the refrigerated section of the store. Before baking, place a chocolate chip, pointy side down, on top of each cookie.
While the cookies bake, melt some chocolate chips in the microwave. We put 1/2 c. chocolate chips in a glass bowl and microwaved on low for 30 second then took them out and stirred them.
When the cookies come out of the oven, use a toothpick to draw some melty chocolate in spider leg formation: four legs pointing out front, and four pointing towards the back.
Tip: it does take a little practice! We also tried spooning the melted chocolate into a zip loc bag and snipping a tiny hole in the corner to pipe the chocolate out. This worked as well.
