Halloween Ice Cream Sandwich Spiders DIY

by Jillian Leslie on


I wanted to make a fun dessert for Halloween, so here are my easy Halloween ice cream sandwich spiders!


  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Candy eyes
  • Orange M&Ms
  • Cookie icing or royal icing
  • Black licorice shoelaces cut into 7 inch strands
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Ice cream

Using cookie icing as glue, attach two candy eyes and orange M&Ms to the top of a cookie. I like to put the cookie icing on the eye or M&M and then affix to the cookie.


Here’s my finished spider top. You might need to wait 5-10 minutes for the cookie icing to set.


On a bottom cookie, add a scoop of ice cream. Cover the sides of the ice cream with sprinkles.

Drape four  black licorice shoe laces over the top of the ice cream scoop.


Attach your head and… voila!


Trick: I put the bottom cookies in the fridge to keep them cold so I could work with the ice cream and it wouldn’t melt right away.
