  • Pour melted chocolate into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag. Use to squeeze small amount of chocolate into indentation in each cookie; top with chocolate ball. Use some of the remaining chocolate to attach candy eyes to chocolate balls for the spiders' eyes. Starting at edge of each chocolate ball, use remaining chocolate to draw 8 lines to outside edge of each cookie for the spider's legs as shown in photo. Let stand until firm.
