Ingredients In This Recipe
The printable recipe further down the page has the complete list of ingredients, including quantities and step-by-step instructions.
Oreo cookies - you will need regular-sized oreo sandwich cookies and mini oreo cookies to make this recipe.
Biscoff spread - We used a smooth Biscoff spread for attaching the spider body to the cookie, but you could use peanut butter or another nut butter.
Licorice - we used a black licorice wheel for the spider legs because that was the only type we could buy at the time, and it worked out well.
However, you could also use black licorice string and cut eight pieces for the legs.
If you don't want to use licorice, you could pipe on melted chocolate for the legs or use pieces of pretzel sticks.
Eyes - we used candy eyes for the spider cookies, but you could also use mini M&M's or mini Smarties.
