Chocolate Oreo Spider Cake

Chocolate Oreo Spider Cake - a delicious chocolate cake topped with homemade chocolate buttercream frosting and Oreos with cinnamon eyes and legs - perfect for a creepy Halloween dessert!

Get ready, friends…

I have another fun and creepy creation to share with you today. This one was inspired by the Chocolate Pudding Spider Pies we made a few years ago. Those are individual-size treats, and I thought it would be fun to make on big spider cake that was simple and delicious and perfect for all your Halloween festivities. I love how festive it turned out and the kids LOVED how tasty it was. The best part is it’s very simple to make and doesn’t require too much baking skills. In fact, I ended up using a cake box for the actual cake and then made an amazing homemade chocolate buttercream frosting to go with it. The frosting made it so delicious along with the crushed Oreos all around it. At first, I had hoped to use black licorice for the legs but that wasn’t working so black card stock was my second option. We loved the result, and I’m so glad it turned out. 😀

This cake really is perfect for any Halloween event you have coming up, and will be a hit with all the kids (and even the adults too). If you love chocolate and Oreos you’ll love it even more. Here’s the recipe:

FOR THE LEGS:

I ended up cutting out one leg from black card stock and then tracing it to make seven more. I inserted these right before we served the cake so that they wouldn’t get messed up (or take up too much room in the fridge). 😉

Then I used cinnamon candies for the eyes – easy peasy!
