Spider Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

5/5 (2)


  • For the Cookies:
  • tick125g unsalted butter (we love Mainland)
  • tick200g brown sugar
  • tick300g Chantal Organics Classic Smooth Peanut Butter
  • tick1 large egg (we love Woodland)
  • tick1 tsp vanilla extract (we love Heilala)
  • tick225g Chantal Organics White Flour
  • tick1 tsp baking powder
  • To Assemble
  • ticksalted caramel & cashew ice cream (we love Kapiti)
  • tick12 Reese's pieces peanut butter cups
  • tick24 small white round lollies, such as tic-tacs
  • tickLicorice, pulled into long strips
  • tickDark chocolate, melted (we love Loving Earth)


  • Step 1.

    In a stand alone mixer or bowl with an electric whisk, mix the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add an egg mixing vigorously, then peanut butter and vanilla extract. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt and fold to incorporate.

  • Step 2.

    Refrigerate cookie dough for thirty minutes.

  • Step 3.

    Preheat oven to 180C.

  • Step 4.

    Line two baking trays with baking paper. Remove cookie dough from fridge then scoop tablespoon amounts of dough for each cookie. Roll each spoonful into a ball then flatten with a wet fork, leaving a little space in between each cookie on the baking tray.

  • Step 5.

    Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden. Set aside to cool.

  • Step 6.

    To make the spiders: Pour your melted chocolate into a piping bag (or fill a ziplock and cut a tiny hole in one corner). Dot pupils on the white round lollies to make eyes, then stick the eyes to the upside down peanut butter cups with the melted chocolate. Draw 8 legs onto the flat side of cooled cookies with melted chocolate, place the spider head in the middle, then stick the licorice legs on top of the melted chocolate.

  • Step 7.

    Scoop the ice cream into 12 balls. Sandwich the ice cream between two cookies, with the spider cookie on top. Eat straight away or store in the freezer. Fun!
