Oreo spider cookies for Halloween

We put up some of our Halloween decorations yesterday but this year I just can’t help making Halloween themed food. Over the years we’ve made a lot of Halloween crafts but now the children are older it’s fun to spend more time in the kitchen. My 5 year old was off sick one day so we spent some time creating Oreo spider cookies for Halloween. They are really simple and you can find lots of different ways to make them if you look on Pinterest. This is our version.

These are really simple but fun – which is the most important thing. My 5 year old used an icing pen to add two big dots of icing, then placed two candy eyes on one side of the oreo.

I used a skewer to make holes in the filling whilst my daughter cut the strawberry laces into smaller pieces. Then she was able to push them into the creamy filling. Sometimes the Oreo’s broke but she was more than happy to eat those ones!

It didn’t take us long to make a whole plate of Oreo spider cookies. We managed to keep the, until Big Brother got home from school and he enjoyed eating them just as much as we enjoyed making them.

    These are so much fun. We always do treats at work for halloween but I struggle finding stuff my boss can eat (she’s vegan) so this may be the perfect solution!
