Creepy Spider Cookies

Makes 6 Creepy Spider Cookies


Spider legs:
Spider filling:
  • 2 t. brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 C. sunflower seed butter
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Dried fruit


  1. Slightly flatten two cookies with bottom of can or palm of your hand. Set aside.
  2. Roll out a Cocoa Loco bar length-wise and cut into long strips, about the size of small pretzel sticks.
  3. Attach three of the strips on top of a cookie so they hang over the sides forming the legs. (Gluten-free pretzels and licorice are a fun alternative too!)
  4. Mix sunflower seed butter with the brown rice syrup to make the spider filling.
  5. Place ½ tablespoon of filling on top of the legs in the center of the cookie.
  6. Top with the remaining cookie. Use dried fruit or seeds for the spider’s eyes.
