Halloween Peanut Butter Spider Cookies – Eat Out All The Spiders That You Can!

Halloween Peanut Butter Cookies are delicious and mouthwatering snack for your family. Your kids will love the look and taste of these Cookies!!!

Peanut Butter is allergic to many kids but not to those in my family. We all love peanut butter and enjoy it as much as other peanut products. So, whenever we cook anything at home, we always go for Peanut butter!!! This Halloween was energetic because my husband was too much involved in all the preparations that we did.

Halloween Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

My kids wanted to bake some peanut butter cookies and they are usually in our home. This time we planned on preparing Halloween Peanut Butter Spider Cookies!!! Adding some spiders over the cookies would be apt for the Halloween, we thought!!!

My son loves chocolates but we never encourage him consuming many. But, it was a special occasion and my husband came up with the idea of making the spider with chocolate.

I had been to my aunt’s house and it would be a surprise for him. So, I consented to my husband’s idea and we set out on the mission of making Halloween Peanut Butter Spider Cookies!!!

Halloween Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

We mixed all the cookie ingredients like peanut butter, vanilla, milk, sugar, brown sugar, flour, baking soda, salt etc. and whisked them to make the cookie dough. The dough was formed into small sized balls and were rolled in sugar. The balls were then placed in the parchment paper and kept inside the preheated oven.

Once the cookies are ready, the peanut butter was placed over the cookies and candy eyeballs were added. The legs of the spider were drawn with liquid chocolate and now the Halloween Peanut Butter Spider Cookies were ready.

My son was surprised by the chocolate cookies and enjoyed the sugar cookies to the core…
