Any size real spider freaks me out, but I could eat an entire plate of these spider treats
Double Stuff Oreo Spiders: Cut the licorice into legs and place in between each cookie. The double stuff cookies make this a little easier. After you have your legs in use a little frosting and place the eyes.
Here is the homemade Oreo recipe I have been using since college.
2 boxes of Devils Food Cake Mix
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Grease cookie sheet.
Step 3: Combine Devils Food Cake Mix, Eggs, and Vegetable Oil until mixed together.
Step 4: Using hands roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet.
Step 5: Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Step 6: Remove from heat and let cookies cool.
Step 7: You can make your own frosting for the filling, but I always just use the Cream Cheese frosting from the grocery store.
Place frosting on cookie then cut the licorice into legs. I cut them a little too long on a few of the spiders. Place the legs on top of the frosting, then place the other cookie on top. Use a little frosting to place the eyes.
You can use either type of spider cookie to make a spider cake.
I just used a box mix for the cake below. I used some food coloring to die vanilla frosting orange and purchased pre-packaged orange decorative frosting for the embellishments around the bottom of the cake. I free handed the web with black gel frosting. Then I placed the spider for an easy spider cake.
