  • In a medium bowl, use a whisk or fork to mix together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • Next, in a mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Stir in the egg and then stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Refrigerate the dough until ready to use.
  • When you are ready to make the cookies, preheat your oven to 350. While using a nonstick to prep your cookies sheets is not required, it is a good idea to prep the sheets with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  • Use a 1" cookie scoop to scoop out balls of dough, place each ball of dough on to the cookie sheet(s). Then gently press the cookie dough down in using the palm of your hand (about ⅔ of the way in).
    Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or until they begin to brown.
    Allow the cookies to cool before topping them with the decoration.
  • Melt the chocolate according to the directions on the packaging. I use a microwave safe bowl and stop to stir every 30 seconds until melted.
    Then stir in the coconut oil until smooth. Allow the chocolate to cool a bit before transferring to a piping bag or zip top bag.
  • To make the spider, pipe a line of melted chocolate down the center of each cookie. Then draw out 4 more chocolate lines on each side of the cookies to create the spider legs.
    Place two whopper balls on the each of the center lines on the cookies. You can also add optional eyes . Allow to the chocolate to set before serving..
