I had the realization recently that pretty much the only Halloween related posts I have shared this season are treats…of the Oreo persuasion. That is sad…really sad. I do have to tell you that I have not eaten any of them. I am TRYING to reduce the amount of sugar in my life right now. But I lay awake at night and close my eyes and see Oreos and try to come up with lots of different versions of them to create. Is there a 12 step program for people like me? Anyways…here is the latest version of my Halloween Oreos…the Spider…cause you can never have enough fun Halloween food…right?
These might be one of my favorites. I am not sure why. I used some fun icing eyes that I found at Target the other day in their baking aisle. They are made by Wilton and just give him some extra character. I dip each Oreo by taking a spoon of the melted chocolate and pouring it over the Oreo. Turn the Oreo around in one hand and drizzle the chocolate over it with the other hand. Make sure to get all around the stick and around the middle of two cookie layers.
Then place on wax paper. I took some fun colored licorice which was also found at Target and cut them into 8 small pieces for the spider’s legs.
Then push them gently, but firmly into the sides of the Oreo…four to each side.
Before the chocolate hardens add some eyeballs. You can also use M&M’s or mini chocolate chips to make the eyes if you can’t find the Wilton eyeballs.
Pop into the freezer until you are ready to wrap them up and gift to someone or until you are ready to eat them with a friend.
Spider Webs are not included or recommended in the assembly process…
Look at those beady eyes…just like a real spider. Have I told you how much I despise real spiders? Remember this post a while back? I share a couple of my “favorite” spider encounters with you…*shudder*!! I think these chocolate covered Oreo Spiders almost make up for my irrational fear of the real ones…
I can’t believe Halloween is in less than a week!
