These Oreo Spiders are the best Halloween dessert!

Spiders, Ghosts, Goblins, oh my! Jack-o-lanterns and Haunted Houses, Mummies and Vampires! It’s so much fun to think about Halloween treats this time of year.

These oreo spiders are just adorable, super simple to make, and perfect for little kiddo hands to help with. You can make these with regular oreos, double stuffed oreos, halloween oreos, any kind of oreos!

We love using oreos for desserts like Oreo Truffles, Oreo Dip, Oreo Pie and Halloween Oreo Balls.

How to make oreo spiders for Halloween

Step 1: Break pretzel rods in half and stuff into the oreo cookies to form the spider legs.

Step 2: Melt the chocolate until smooth. You need just a little bit of chocolate for this recipe. Depending on how many spiders you make you may only need a few tablespoons of chocolate chips. Just enough to dab on where the eyes will go to help them stick.

Step 3: Use a toothpick or whatever you have on hand to place the melted chocolate onto the oreos where the eyes will go.

Step 4: Immediately place the googly eye candies onto the melted chocolate. Place the oreos in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.

These are just too much fun and my kids loved them. We will be making these spider cookies for Halloween again this year!

With the leftover chocolate I dipped some extra pretzel rods into melted chocolate and placed it in the fridge to harden. I called these “spider legs” and the kids thought that was so funny.

  • Oreos
  • Chocolate chips
  • Googly eye candy
  • Pretzel rods


  • Melt a little bit of chocolate chips in a bowl. You won’t need very much, maybe ¼ cup or less depending on how many spiders you make.
  • Place the pretzel rods on both sides of the oreos to form the spider legs. You may need to break the rods in half.
  • Use a toothpick to place a little bit of melted chocolate where the eyes will go to help them stick. Place the eye candies on top immediately. Place in the fridge until the chocolate sets


We made these with regular oreos, but if you can find them Halloween oreos would be really fun to use too!
