My daughter, who is six, is all about spiders (and other creepy things) this year for Halloween. But I like "cute" for Halloween. So here was my compromise: I made her spider ice cream sandwiches but took most of the "scary" out! She saw what I did, loved them, and ate an entire spider in one sitting!

What you'll need

  • 1 package (16 oz) Ready To Bake!™ Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Orange chocolate candies
  • Candy eyes
  • Black licorice laces
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Ice cream
  • Cookie icing
Helpful Tip:

It's best to refrigerate the cookies you are going to use as the ice cream sandwich "bottoms."

Finish all the spider heads before you start putting the ice cream sandwiches together.

Get all your supplies ready so you can make assemble the ice cream sandwiches before the ice cream melts.

How to make it

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. On ungreased cookie sheet, place cookie dough rounds 2 inches apart. Bake the chocolate chip cookies 12 to 16 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 10 minutes.

  2. Using small dots of cookie icing, attach the candy eyes and orange chocolate candies to the top of the cookie to create the spider body.

  3. Add a scoop of ice cream to the bottom of another cookie. Coat with chocolate sprinkles. Then drape four 7-inch strips of black licorice shoe laces across the top of the ice cream to create the spider legs.

  4. Place the spider body on top of the ice cream and serve!
