October 31 is fast approaching, and even if the candy hunt is banned this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, nothing prevents us from celebrating Halloween as a family. Horror movie and spooky disguises, here is the recipe for cookies that will perfectly match the theme of the evening.

Ingredients for 15 to 20 cookies:

  • 150 g of peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 20 g flour
  • ½ sachet of baking powder
  • 20 maltese

For decoration (chocolate legs and eyes):

  • 40 g of dark chocolate
  • 20 g of liquid cream
  • 10 g ground almonds
  • 10 g icing sugar


Preheat the oven to 160 ° C. In a bowl, combine the peanut butter, egg, brown sugar, flour, and baking powder.

Roll them into balls in your hands, and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Hollow out each ball in the middle with your finger. Remember to space them well, the cookies will spread out when baking. Bake for 12 minutes.

When taking them out of the oven, reform the holes well if necessary and let cool. Then place a maltster in the center of each cookie.

To make the eyes, mix the almond powder with the icing sugar and gradually add a little water. You will need to get a fairly compact texture. Make small balls and place them to form eyes. Using a toothpick and melted dark chocolate, draw the pupils.

For the legs, melt the chocolate with the cream and pour everything into a pastry bag fitted with a very fine tip. Then draw 8 legs on each cookie.

Your horror cookies are ready. Enjoy your meal !
