Halloween Spider Reeses Peanut Butter Cookies


  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup HomePlate Creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup additional granulated sugar
  • 36 miniature peanut butter cups, frozen
  • 72 candy eyes
  • ½ cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. 
  2. Using a handheld or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars.
  3. Add HomePlate Creamy Peanut Butter and the egg and beat on medium speed until well combined.
  4. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to the wet ingredients and stir until a dough forms.
  5. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in the additional granulated sugar in a separate bowl.
  6. Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and immediately press a peanut butter cup upside down into each cookie and transfer to a wire rack to cool. The peanut butter cup will be softened from the heat of the cookie- press the googly eyes into each peanut butter cup.
  8. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Once it’s melted, spoon into a piping bag. Snip a small corner off the bag and pipe eight lines around the peanut butter cup to create the legs of the spider. 
  9. Serve and enjoy!
