Post Holiday Recipe Thursday Halloween Spider Cookies

Looking for a fun Halloween recipe to do with your kids and family? Halloween Spider Cookies are a yummy blend of cute and scary!


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 Party Time Mixes New York Cheesecake Dessert Mix (or any dessert mix or 1/2 cocktail mix)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

Mini Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups

Candy Eyes

Candy Melts


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or coat with baking spray).

2. In a large bowl with a standing mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter, sugar and dessert mix together until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.

3. Add in the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract; beat until combined.

4. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl every now and again

5. Roll dough into 1" balls, and roll in sugar.

6. Place on baking sheet, about 2" apart. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until cookies have set.

7. While cookies are baking melt your candy melts and place in a pastry piping bag (or ziplock bag)

8. Once cookies are done, pipe chocolate on the top of the Reece’s cup and place top down in the middle of the cookie

9. Pipe two dots of chocolate on the side of the Reece’s cup and place candy eyes on each dot.

10. Pipe spider legs on the cookie

IMPORTANT - This recipe can be made using any of our dessert or cocktail mixes! Imagine the possibilities!


* I used the back of a spoon to make a little divot in the cookie. This gives a nice place to rest the peanut butter cup. You can also use the end of a wooden spoon. Totally optional step.

7. While cookies are baking melt your candy melts and place in a pastry piping bag (or zip lock bag) corner of the bag off (just a little tiny corner). This will work great too!

* I used decorating tweezers - they will make putting the eyes on so much easier. They are great to have on hand for other decorating projects as well.

* Chill the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups before you begin. It will make them much easier to work with because they won’t get all melty!

Come back and tell me how they turned out for you! Have a great day & wonderful weekend!
