Spider cookies

Hi Everyone!
Here you have a great idea for your halloween Party!  I Hope you like it!!


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 sticks of Unsalted Butter (113 g each)
  • ½ Cups Powdered sugar
  • ¼ Tspn Salt
  • 2 Tspn Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Dove Chocolate Covered Mixed Berries
  • 4 oz Dark Chocolate 
  • Red Gel for decoration (food Gel)

Preheat the oven to 350ºF

Mix the flour with the salt, stir well and set aside for a minute

With an electric mixer,  on medium high speed, combine the butter with the powdered sugar,  for about 2 minutes or until the butter mixture becomes a bit fluffy, then add in the vanilla extract, and continue to mix for 30 more seconds.\

Scrape down the sides of the bowl, reduce the speed to low and slowly add in the flour mixture.

Once you add all the flour, continue to mix on medium speed until the batter comes all together and it sticks to the mixer beater.

To make the cookies, grab a bit of the batter, and roll it with your hands to form a ball.  Then flatten it up to about of an inch, and place it on a baking sheet.  Repeat this step until you have all the cookies.

Make sure the cookies are about an inch apart from each other before they go into the oven.

Bake them at 350ºF for about 15-18 minutes or until cooked and slightly golden.  Once they come off the oven, let them cool for a few minutes.

Melt the dark chocolate. I just placed it in a plastic bag and microwaved it for 60-90 seconds.

Now to decorate the cookies, you will use the melted chocolate to draw some spider’s legs on the cookies. You can either draw 6-8 legs, whatever you decided.  Now grab one of the chocolate covered berries, put a bit of chocolate on it, and place it on the  cookie, right above the spider’s’ legs. Grab another of the berries (make sure is smaller than the first you used) also add a bit of melted chocolate to glue it to the berry that's already on the cookie . And that’s it, now you have a spider on the cookie.  Keep on doing this until you are done.

Once you are done grab the red gel, to add a dot or line right at the end of the spider’s body. Just like you see on the picture.

And that’s it. They are ready.

Enjoy and Have Fun!
