Halloween Dessert: Spider Web Cookies
No time to bake a dessert for Halloween? No problem. These adorably creepy spider web cookies require no baking and are easily assembled with just three ingredients — perfect for the kids to help make.
- 2 packages (2.47 oz. each) chocolate covered biscuit sticks
- 10 oz. white candy melting wafers
- 3 tablespoons bug sprinkles
Yield: 10 cookies
Using a serrated knife, trim the chocolate biscuit sticks 1/3 of the way up from the uncoated stick ends (Image 1). Spread parchment paper over a large work surface or line several large baking sheets with parchment paper. Arrange eight biscuit sticks on the parchment paper with the cut ends touching in a radiating star pattern (Image 2).
Melt the candy wafers in a microwave-safe bowl at 100% power in 30-second intervals until melted. Transfer the candy to a piping bag fitted with a small round opening such as Wilton #2. Pipe the candy in the center of the assembled biscuits to anchor them together. Pipe circles of candy starting near the center and working your way out to the ends of the candy, creating a web effect. Then, pipe a straight line of candy between the biscuit sticks, crossing the spiraling lines of "web" (Image 1). Immediately place bug sprinkles randomly on the piped webbing (Image 2). Let the cookies stand until dry, about 30 minutes at room temperature. The piped chocolate webbing will be delicate. Use care when peeling them from the parchment paper.
