Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spooky Spider Cookies

Print

Trick or treat?! Pretty sure you and I know my answer will always be treat… Especially if there is chocolate and nut butter involved! Who’s with me?!

Eve asked if we could make batch of festive cookies to share with her friends for their after school Halloween party and lets just say, she didn’t have to ask twice. These Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spooky Spider Cookies were perfect!

I know it’s a little last minute but these spooky little spider cookies turned out so well I thought I might as well snap a couple of pics and share them here for you to enjoy too. Just in case you were looking for some last minute festive fun . . . or just a different way to get your daily chocolate, PB, cookie fix! 3 ingredients to make the cookies, 3 ingredients to put it all together and if you don’t want to start from scratch it’s still just 3 ingredients that you’d need to buy, although if your anything like me, cookies, chocolate and peanut butter are life essentials that we ALWAYS have on hand.

The cookies themselves are crisp and crunchy, but not too crunchy, subtly sweet, deliciously buttery, packed with punchy peanut butter flavor which if you ask me, is the best kind. They come together in 1 bowl with 1 spoon and bake up to delicious, delectable , devour-able perfection in just 6-8 minutes!

While your cookies cool, melt some chocolate , pour into a ziplock (or piping bag if you have one handy), drizzle on some spidery legs, add some google-y eyes to your peanut butter cups and voila.

I hope you love them as much as we do, which FYI, is A LOT!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Monkfruit is a great alternative to artificial sugar because it is a natural sweetener. It is safe for consumption for people with diabetes because its sweetness originates from natural compounds called mogrosides that bring down the blood glucose levels in the body.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Spooky Spider Cookies

  • Prep Time:25 Minutes
  • Cook Time:10 Minutes
  • Servings: 12 Cookies

Ingredients

For the cookies:

1 cup of peanut butter

1/2 cup of monk fruit sweetener

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon of salt + extra for sprinkling

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, optional

2 scoops of collagen or Further Food Collagen, optional

For serving:

1 cup of dark chocolate

1/4 cup white chocolate

Peanut butter cups

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 175’C/350/F
  2. Line a baking tray with baking/parchment paper (or a silpat mat) and set aside)
  3. Whisk egg, sugar, vanilla, salt and collagen, if using, in a medium size bowl until well combined.
  4. Add peanut butter and stir until it comes together to form a dough.
  5. Scoop, roll and press into desired shape and size and sprinkle with a little extra salt.
  6. If you want the pretty pattern on top use a fork to gently press down in the center. Note – keep in mind these cookies don’t really spread much so shape them how you want to eat them.
  7. I like to make mine on the smaller side and tend to use about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie. Feel free to make them as big or small as you like #youdyou just make sure you adjust your baking time accordingly.
  8. Bake smaller cookies for 6-8 minutes, or larger cookies for 10-12 – until they are deliciously golden and feel just set. You may think they are slightly under done but trust me, they’re perfect. They firm up as they cool.
  9. Now comes the hard part, you need to leave your cookies on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes or so to cool and set before you move them.
  10. If you try to move them too soon they will crumble. They will still be delicious but they may fall apart in your hands. If this happens, fear not, either continue on and inhale the crumbs or set them aside and use them as a smoothie topper!
  11. While your cookies are cooling melt chocolate by your preferred method.
  12. Pour your dark chocolate in to a small zip lock bag and pipe on your spiders legs
  13. Use a tooth pick to add google-y eyes to your peanut butter cups (not necessary but still fun). Start with a dot of white and then add a smaller dot of dark chocolate to make the pupils.
  14. Press your peanut butter cup on to the centre of your cookie, ,the melted chocolate should hold them in place.
