For this recipe I went with Halloween Oreo’s, and a cookie icing for the white of the spider eyes, and a Wilton Sparkle Gel in Black for the dots. For the white icing, I would be sure to use a thicker cookie or cake icing. You don’t want it running everywhere! All of these items should be at your local grocery store but links are provided if you need them.
The black dots are a little more forgiving. If you can find a gel icing, go with that. If you end up without many options at the store, I suggest using what you have, and putting a small amount into a bowl. Use a toothpick to blot a tiny amount of the black icing onto each Spider eye. This way you can be sure not to end up with way too much and ruin the whole cookie!
I like the toothpick method but if you have other tips be sure to comment and let us know!(text)
After the spider’s eyes are dry, carefully insert pretzel sticks for the legs. I went with four on each side, and used orange filled Oreo’s. How fun! Let dry on parchment paper and serve on a fun Halloween Platter.
You can really get creative with these Oreo Spiders. I made the eyes very small, but for kids I would probably just make the eyes bigger so it’s a bit easier.
This Peanut Butter Monster Munch is great for parties. So easy to make and you can add or take away any ingredients you want.
