Creepy Spider Ice Cream Sandwiches Are A Deliciously Frightful Halloween Treat
Give your guests the eebie jeebies by serving up some creepy, crawly Spider Ice Cream Sandwiches at your next frightful Halloween bash. These can be made ahead of time, leaving plenty of time to enjoy your party guests and the little trick-or-treaters that come knocking on your door.
I made these spider ice cream sandwiches using my homemade orange ice cream recipe and chocolate cookies adapted from the chocolate chip cookie recipe found on the back of a package of Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate chips. I substituted some of the flour with cocoa and omitted the chocolate chips altogether.
I went with orange ice cream and chocolate cookies because I wanted my spiders to be black and orange in the spirit of Halloween. And well, the combination of chocolate and orange flavors together is a marriage made in heaven.
This recipe makes 12 spider ice cream sandwiches, using 24 cookies and 1 quart of ice cream. I used Twizzlers Pull ‘N’ Peel Candy for the spider legs and M & M Chocolate Candies for the eyes. In preparation for making the spider eyes, I pressed M & M candies onto one dozen of the hot cookies immediately after they were removed from the oven.
Building the spider ice cream sandwiches, I placed a scoop of ice cream on the bottom side of a dozen cookies, placed them back in the freezer and worked with one at a time to avoid a melting disaster.
To make the spider legs, I cut each string of candy in half and then laid four halves across the tops of each scoop of ice cream. Then I placed a cookie on top, the ones with the spider eyes, bottom side down and gave the ice cream sandwich a little squish together.
The lengths of the legs needed will vary depending on the size cookies you make and the thickness of the ice cream sandwiched in between. I used a pair of kitchen scissors to snip the ends off of each of the spider legs until I was happy with the length.
You can use any cookie of your choice, either homemade or store-bought and pair it with your favorite flavor of ice cream. Use different colors of ice cream or add a couple of fangs to make mutant spider ice cream sandwiches. Make them as cute or as scary as you like.
