I'm going to An Old Fashioned Halloween Party today. I am trying to decide that to make/bring. I made these for another event last week and do not want to duplicate myself. These were a huge hit, however!
The best part is that you don't have to make anything from scratch. (If you don't want to!)
1 package small black spiders (use larger ones if you are making these for the younger set)
2 rolls of Pillsbury or Nestle's refrigerated sugar cookie dough
2 - 4 Tbs. of milk
1 can of vanilla frosting*
1 can of chocolate frosting
1 or 2 disposable pastry bags with a thin tip
Bake cookies per directions on package, cool and frost with vanilla frosting, let harden over night or for a few hours
Add milk to chocolate frosting to make it softer and place the frosting in the disposable pastry bag.
Roll or pinch the top of the pasty bag.
Pipe frosting in circles, then pipe the stripes going across the cookies.
Place spider on top (to hide any flaws!)
* I made the frosting following the recipe on the back of the Domino's confectioner's sugar packaging. I love the way it tastes! Kids can help with this one too!
