These Chocolate Chip Spider Cookies are proof that you don’t need to be a professional baker or have any special equipment to make a super cool, creepy Halloween treat. These easy Halloween cookies are as creepy and easy as it gets!

I love making fun Halloween desserts for my kids in the fall.  Some of our favorites include Caramel Popcorn, Graveyard Brownies and Halloween Spider Cupcakes.

A few cookies on a wooden table with chocolate chips in each and the chocolate chips are each frosted to look like Halloween spiders.

Raise your hand if your in need of an EASY Halloween treat?! Most people have the ingredients they need already to make chocolate chip cookies, which means you have everything you need to make these Chocolate Chip Spider Cookies!

Add 2-3 chocolate chip to the top of each cookie right when they come out of the oven.

Then melt the remaining chocolate chips, pour the melted chocolate into a small ziplock bag with the corner cut off and draw spider legs on the chocolate chips. So easy, and so cute!

My little boy LOVED these and talked about them for days. They make quite an impression 😉

Did I mention that this chocolate chip cookie recipe is my all time favorite? Super soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies–just the way I like them! Kill two birds with one stone–a delicious treat your party-goers will love, and a spooky one to. Happy Halloween!

    We loved this recipe. The cookies came out perfect and I put the last batch in the fridge to get an extra puff out of them. We did bake them a little longer, by perhaps two minutes, but they were absolutely delicious.

  2. 5 stars
    I made these for Halloween and got raves on the cookie itself. If I make them for Christmas without the spiders do I just add 2 cups of chocolate chips to the batter?

  3. can i just add chocolate chips before i bake the cookies?
    i liked to try the recipe but scared to add chocolate chips afterwards.
