Hexbug Party Spider Cookies...

Remember my Hexbug party from last weekend?  Well, as promised here is my recipe for our spooky spider cookies we made in honor of our new Hexbugs!  Hope you enjoy...

Mom's Spooky Spider Cookies...

1 1/4 C. Flour                                                                               
6 TBS Unsweetened Cocoa Powder                                            
1/2 tsp baking soda                                                                     
1/2 tsp salt                                                                                    
10 TBS unsalted butter (softened)
1 C sugar
1 Large egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 C chocolate sprinkles
Mini M&M's (regular sized work too in a pinch)
Mini Pretzel Sticks (snapped in 2)

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  In a separate bowl cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth.  Slowly add in flour mixture.  Roll teaspoons of dough between  your hands to form balls.  Roll balls in sprinkles and then place on cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each.  Press lightly on each ball to flatten slightly.  Place two M&M's on one end of each ball.  Insert 4 pretzel stick halves on each side of ball.   Bake cookies for 12 minutes (they will appear "dry" on top).  Let cool on wire rack.  Enjoy!
