Spider cookies are another big TikTok trend for Halloween, gaining more than 1million views on the social media site recently.

One of our favourite tutorials on how to make them is from TikTok user @sweetportfolio, who takes her 1.3million followers through each step on how to make them.

The process is rather simple – with foodies first having to melt chocolate buttons in a microwave.

You then get a Reeses cup and coat that with the melted chocolate to stick it onto a choc chip cookie.

Foodies then make edible ‘eyes’ before piping on the spider legs with chocolate.

Obviously, if you want to go the whole hog – you can make the cookies yourself too!
