Hairy Spider Cookies

Hello October! We are just zooming through these last few months of the year! Does anyone feel like we are moving at lightening speed?

Typically, my life turns into madness this time of year. As the holidays and parties in these last 3 months approach us, my schedule gets jammed.

Last year, I started posting lots of last minute recipes that became staples at my house for October, November and December. I’m talking really fast dinners, desserts, and party foods. You never know when you’ll need to whip something up fast! {Hello Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays, Holidays, Halloween, New Years, and other miscellaneous parties and get togethers.} So that is what has been on my mind when I came up with these Hairy Spider Cookies.

By taking a few shortcuts, you can have these ready to go in about an hour. So much easier and faster than trying to find something as tasty from the store. Not to mention cute and festive too 😉

Here’s how to make them:


Because this is a fast recipe, I take a lot of help from the store. You will not believe how fun and fast it is to make these fun cookies!

The first thing we need is Kroger Slice n’ Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. I scooped these into dough balls to bake, though I suppose you could just slice them!

That probably would have been easier…


Do as I say and not as I do.


ANYWAYS, once the cookies are all baked, you want to set them on a cooling rack with some wax or parchment paper underneath to catch the chocolate drips.

Yes, we are going to coat these cookies in chocolate, why do you ask?


I guess technically, we are coating them in chocolate bark coating. It’s easier to melt and quicker to set, not to mention cheaper!! Especially if you’re shopping at Kroger.


So, break apart 12 ounces of the chocolate bark and melt down in the microwave.


Spoon and spread it over the top of each cookie.


Be sure to push the chocolate over the edges to cover the whole cookie.


With the chocolate bark still wet, add some candy eyes.


And some licorice legs!


And some sprinkles too!


After 10-15 minutes, the chocolate is completely set and you’ve got some super tasty spiders that are perfect for Halloween 🙂


I’m not gonna lie, I’ve never liked a spider before today. It helps that these ones don’t move…and are made of chocolate. Haha!

Anyways friends, I hope you all are having a wonderful day. Printable recipe below 🙂
