HALLOWEEN 2016: Chocolate chip spider cookies 👻

Looking for an easy-peasy Halloween treat recipe? I’ve got you covered…..and they’re delicious!!!! 🙂



  • 150g salted butter, softened
  • 80g soft brown sugar
  • 80g white caster sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 225g plain flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 200g plain chocolate chip or chunks
  • chocolate icing pens/ chocolate to melt and pipe


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and blend until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg.
  3. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the chocolate chips or chocolate chunks, and stir well.
  5. Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. (This is essential as once the cookies start to cook, they spread!)
  6. Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre.
  7. As soon as you take the cookies out of the oven, carefully as a couple of extra chocolate chips to the top surface of each cookie, for the spider’s body.
  8. Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack.
  9. Once cool, use your chocolate icing pens, or melt some chocolate to pipe, and draw 8 legs around each of the bodies, to make the spiders!

I made these at Nathan’s, and his scales had broke…. so I had to completely guess measurements, but I did pretty well as they taste gorgeous!

Hope you enjoy them!
