Halloween Spider Cookies
- Black string licorice
- 20 orange creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 teaspoon chocolate ready-to-spread frosting (from 16-oz container)
- 40 M&M’s® minis chocolate candies
For each cookie, cut eight 1 1/2-inch pieces of licorice for legs. Insert 4 pieces into filling on each side of each cookie.
With frosting, attach 2 M&M’s™ minis chocolate candies to top of each cookie for eyes.
Can’t find orange creme-filled cookies? Vanilla-filled cookies work just fine. And if you’d like, you can use black licorice twists instead of the string. Cut the twists into 1 1/2-inch lengths, then cut the lengths vertically into thin strips.
A kitchen scissors works well for cutting string licorice. If the kids are helping, scrub clean their blunt-tipped scissors in warm soapy water.
