Tarantula Cookies

Guest Author - Susan


Makes about 25-30 cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 bag (8 ounces) thin, short pretzel sticks
1 bag (11 1/2 ounces) milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Chocolate sprinkles
Small red candies


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flower, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well blended.
  4. Gradually add the flour mixture and cocoa powder. Beat to form a smooth dough.
  5. Roll a tablespoon-sized ball of dough, and place it on a baking sheet. Arrange 8 pretzel sticks firmly into the dough ball. Continue with the rest of the pretzels and dough.
  6. Bake until the cookies start to brown around the edges, about 7-10 minutes.
  7. Lift the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula, and place on wire cooling racks. Cool completely. Place the racks on sheets of aluminum foil or waxed paper.
  8. In a double boiler (or the microwave), melt the chocolate chips with vegetable oil.
  9. Pour the melted chocolate over each cookie. Coat with sprinkles. Press in 2 red candy eyes on the front of the head.
