This recipe is from the Imperial Sugar website, they have lots of fun crafts, art, spooky recipes, and cute free printables. My girls loved making these because it was like making an edible craft. (And we really do love to craft!)
To make these "Not So Spooky Spiders" Halloween Cookies, gather the following ingredients. (I was surprised that we had them all, with the exception of the chocolate sprinkles.)
5. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in chocolate sprinkles. Add 4 pretzel sticks to each side of the cookie, making 8 legs.
6. Place on baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
7. When the cookies come out of the oven, place a malted milk ball in the center of each cookie. Add candy eyeballs while the cookies are still warm. Let rest on sheets for 3 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
I was a little unsure about the pretzels in the cookies. But I was pleasantly surprised. That crunchy, salty texture is perfect with the rich cocoa flavor.
My girls think they taste like "extra yummy brownies". And I have to agree. These "Not So Spooky Spiders" will not last long! But that's ok. I am planning on making them a few more times--for school and to take to Halloween parties.
