Why make Oreo Spider Cookies?

This year, I needed a fun Halloween dessert that my toddler could help me with. We were short on time, so I wanted something that would take about 15 minutes, tops. These cookies checked both of those boxes perfectly!

I also wanted a no-bake treat since my oven was already in use cooking our dinner.

A lot of spider cookie recipes contain peanut butter. These are also great treats if you have a peanut allergy in your home as there are peanut free.

How to make Oreo Spider Cookies

It’s very important to make sure that you are using the Double Stuf Oreo cookies so that you have enough room to fit the pretzel sticks into the filling between the cookies. You will want a fresh pack so that the cream filling is soft and easy to work with.

Slowly insert a pretzel stick into the cream filling between the chocolate cookies. You may have to twist the pretzel stick back and forth a bit to get in. Use your thumb and index finger to lightly press on the cookies to keep it from splitting open while you push the pretzels in.

How to make spider legs

  • Place three pretzel sticks on each side of the cookie for a total of six
  • Leave approximately 1/2 an inch between each stick
  • Angle the upper and lower sticks a bit to give the look of spider legs.

Pro Tip: If you want to be more realistic with these little guys, you can give them 8 legs. I feel like it throws the salty to sweet ratio off to add that many pretzels, so I prefer 6 legs, but make these your own and add however many legs you prefer.

How to make spider eyes

  • Take the package of decorative chocolate icing and snip the tip close to the end so that you only have a small opening for the icing to come out.
  • Place a tiny dab of frosting on the backside of the candy eyes, and place them onto the Oreo spiders. You have more control when you put the icing directly on the eyes than on the cookie, so I definitely recommend doing it this way.

That’s it! Wait a few minutes for the icing to harden before stacking them on a plate or tray so that the eyes don’t shift.

These Oreo Spider Cookies make for a fun activity with kiddos, and are a darling sweet and salty Halloween treat!

How do you store Oreo Spider Cookies?

Store leftovers in an airtight container to prevent the cookie and pretzels from getting stale.

When stored properly, these cutie cookies will last up to 1 week.
