Halloween Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Crackers aka “Spiderweb Cookies”
I love Fall, mainly because the holidays offer an excuse to eat lots of sweets! One of my fondest memories is of all the cookies my Granny would make throughout the season, especially her chocolate dipped peanut butter crackers. I haven’t been able to enjoy them for a while since we now live far apart, so I decided to attempt them myself, with a “spooky” twist.
These cookies combine two of my favorite things: chocolate and peanut butter. Calling myself a “kitchen novice” would be a generous statement, but even I could handle these with ease (no baking required!) Plus, they only require 4 ingredients!

Ingredients for Spiderweb Cookies
STEP ONE: Spread peanut butter between two butter crackers to make a sandwich.
I chose Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut Butter because it has a texture like fresh ground PB, but still spreads smoothly. Even better is what it does NOT have: no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives — so you can feel good about eating it and sharing with your family. Oh, and there is no stirring required!
Can you tell I am a huge peanut butter fan?
STEP TWO: Prepare melting chocolate according to directions on package. Dunk your peanut butter cracker sandwiches until they are fully coated, then set on a baking sheet (or silicon baking mat as shown in photos) to dry.
**Tip: I used chopsticks for this step and they worked very well!
STEP THREE: Once chocolate has completely hardened, prepare white melting chocolate. Using a toothpick, paint “spiderwebs” on top of the cookies. The cookies are ready to eat as soon as the white chocolate has dried. No refrigeration needed!

With Halloween on the way, I thought I would also include some key safety tips to make sure Trick-or-Treat is is truly a “TREAT!”
T – TAKE a flashlight to see in poorly lit areas and to let others know you’re there.
R – REFLECTIVE clothing will make you even more visible to passing motorists.
E – EVERYONE stick together — never Trick-or-Treat alone.
A – ALWAYS check candy to make sure packaging is sealed and shows no signs of tampering.
T – TRADE sharp costume pieces for softer versions to prevent injury from accidental trips or bumping into another person.
