Recipe Ingredients

Recipe Directions

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric whisk and beat together the peanut butter, brown sugar and eggs until fluffy.
  2. Add in the flour, protein powder, and salt. Mix until well combined then cover and let set in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F
  4. Roll the dough out into small balls and place evenly spaced on a greased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let cool for 3-5 minutes. Place one unwrapped mini Reese’s cup on the top of each cookie with two candy eyes.
  7. Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag or into a ziplock sandwich bag. Cut a very small corner off of the bag and pipe four spider legs on either side of the Reese’s cups.
  8. Let cool until chocolate has hardened. Enjoy these creepy-crawly cookies with your favorite cup of coffee or glass of milk 🙂
