No Bake PB Cocoa Pretzel Spiders

Do you make any special Halloween treats?

Our Halloween nights are usually full of candy dessert and stories from our neighbors, but I love the idea of making fun foods like these spider cookies.


We’re normally at home since we don’t have kids to take trick-or-treating yet, and I have a feeling we’ll be going through a batch of these no bake cookies this year.

My mom’s classic no bake cookies never had peanut butter, but I wanted this batch to have that peanut butter flavor. Peanut butter + cocoa + salty pretzels is one of my favorite  dessert combinations, and I wanted all three flavors in these cookies.


The best part of no bakes is that they’re ready in no time!

Lay out your pretzel spider legs, drop the cookie dough on top, and let them set. Quick, easy, and a fun way to have cookies this Halloween night.
