oreo spiders

Not long till Halloween…kids love it but mums less so!

Let’s just admit (confession time), it can be a lot of extra work in an already busy schedule.

This is why these super quick and easy non-baked Oreo spiders are all you need for a spooktacular treat!

What you’ll need (makes 12 spiders)

  • 12 Oreo biscuits
  • Black liquorice laces (about 5m)
  • 1 tube of white piping icing
  • 24 candy eyeball (or black sprinkle)

How to make it

  1. Cut the liquorice into 48 strips (each roughly 10cm long). 
  2. Gently twist open the Oreo biscuits.Oreo Spiders
  3. Place four licorice strips onto the side of the Oreo (the side with the filling) and press gently into the filling.
  4. Working one spider at a time, squeeze a dollop of white piping icing on top of the liquorice strips and the filling.
  5. Pop the top back on the Oreo biscuits.
  6. Squeeze a small amount of icing on top of the biscuit where the spider eyes will be placed. Immediately place the candy eyeballs onto the icing (alternatively squeeze a bigger amount of white cing in a circular motion and place two black sprinkles on top).
  7. Allow to dry for at least 2 hours…spooky (but still cute!)
