These Oreo Spider Cookie Sandwiches are a spooky monster of a treat.
Making this a must have for Halloween.
Fantastic for a Halloween party or teacher treats, they will be a smash hit.
They are easy to assemble, fun to make (even with kids) and so festive.
We actually ended up using these for teacher treats, and I know they will just love them. And the kids are excited to see what their teachers say.
This treat was actually inspired by my son’s class party treat that I made, Oreo Spider Cupcakes.
I had some left over Oreos and frosting and was wondering what I could do with them, I hate frosting going to waste and I didn’t want to, well I did, but my waistline didn’t want me to finish off the bag of Oreos.
I am so excited for the coming years and the tradition of making these Oreo Spider Cookie Sandwiches.
A monster spectacular treat these Oreo Monster Cookie Sandwiches will be a frightfully fantastic treat this Halloween.

- Add in green food coloring, amount you desire for the color you want.
Lay out a long piece of wax paper on the counter.
Melt chocolate according to package directions, pour into a medium sized mixing bowl.
Holding the bottom part of the Oreo dip the top half, making sure to cover most of the sides of the Oreo as well into the melted dark chocolate. Set melted chocolate side up on the wax paper, sprinkle immediately with chocolate sprinkles. Repeat with remaining Oreos.
Using a tip of a small spoon, pick up one eye ball add a small amount of chocolate onto the back using the small spoon. Set on Oreo where you want the eye to be, make sure that it is on the side of the Oreo. Add 2 more eyes next to the Oreo you just “glued” on, place them in a row, right next to each other. Repeat with remaining eyes and Oreos. Set on wax paper to set.
Prepare buttercream frosting.
Using a Ziplock bag with the tip cut off, or a piping bag. Pipe frosting on the bottom of one Oreo (no covered in chocolate side), go around the edge of the cookie two times, so that the cookie has 2 layers of frosting. Then top the frosting with another Oreo, bottom side directly on the frosting, while making sure that the eyes line up. Slightly push the Oreos together, to make sure that they are both sticking. Place on wax paper, and repeat with remaining Oreos and frosting.
Cut Twizzlers into strips, cup 6 for each spider. Insert into the frosting, 3 on each side.
Kids review: They loved these. I let them split a monster with another sibling or friend, then the rest we used a teacher treats for my middle school son, Aiden.
