– Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix – Vegetable Oil – Water – Egg – Whoppers Malted Milk Balls Candy – Chocolate Chips – Candy Eyeballs (optional)

Step One: Bake the Cookies

For the Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix, you will stir the cookie mix, oil, water, and egg in a medium bowl until the dough forms.

Next, you will scoop and roll the dough into balls.

For baking, pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees and place the cookies a couple of inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edge of the cookie just begins to turn golden brown.

Finally, allow the cookies to cool for 2 minutes before removing them from the cookie sheet. Place them on a wire rack to cool until they are at room temperature. You definitely want them cooled before you begin to decorate.

Step Two: Time to Decorate the Spider Cookies

Once the cookies are completely cooled, it’s time to add the legs.
