Spider Cookies and Halloween Party Ideas. So easy to make and spookingly adorable.

I love a cute party with a lot of treats and just a few tricks.

So, let's have some Halloween fun!

Easy Halloween Spider Cookies

Make your party extra memorable with these easy Halloween Spider Cookies made with only 5 ingredients. They are so simple to put together, even the kids can help. Here's what you need to make these:

Body: Fudge Covered Peanut Butter Cookies (Family Gourmet brand)

Legs: Pretzel Sticks (I used the pretzels from J.R. Dippers packs)

Eyes: Spice Drops (Catawba brand is a $1 WOW item)

Fangs: Candy Corn, white tips. (Catawba brand is a $1 WOW item)

Chocolate Frosting to hold it all together.

You'll need four pretzel sticks for each cookie.

Start by carefully cutting the pretzel sticks in half to make eight "legs".

Use chocolate frosting on the bottom side of each of the Fudge Covered Peanut Butter Cookies and press the pretzel legs in.

Let the frosting set so that the pretzels will stay secure.

Once they are secure, turn over the cookies.

Cut the tips off of each spice drop and use the base for the spider "eyes".

Since they will be extra sticky, you can simply press them into the front of each cookie.

For the final step, trim the white tips off of each piece of candy corn. Use a tiny dab of chocolate frosting to place the "fangs" into the front part of each cookie.

Let them set and they are all set to serve.

Could that be any simpler?

Kids will totally love these!
