To make Halloween Spider biscuits, preheat the oven to 180C/ fan/ Gas 4. Set aside two baking trays lined with greaseproof paper.

2

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar together with a hand whisk until mixture is light and fluffy. Beat the egg and vanilla extract into the mixture.

3

Stir in the dry ingredients, flour, bicarbonate of soda and 1/4 tsp of salt into the mixture.

4

Scoop the mixture onto the trays, leaving enough room for each as they will spread as they cook. The mixture should make between 18-20 biscuits. Create a thumbprint in the centre of the cookies.

5

Place in the oven for 10-12 mins until crispy at the edges but soft in the centre. Leave to cool on the tray.

Meanwhile, heat the chocolate over a pot filled with water, stirring occasionally making sure the chocolate does not burn. Place a small bit of chocolate in the middle and set a Malteser or Rolo in the centre. Using either a piping bag or the back of a teaspoon drizzle the rest of the chocolate over the biscuits to create the effect of spider legs. Stick two candy eyes on the biscuits.
