I loved when my mom made these fun no-bake cookies. They are really easy to make and have a very unique appearance. Great for Halloween/insect themes because they look like spiders! (Tip - My mom recommends China Lily brand noodles.)

This is a recipe my family has also made for years around the Holidays (Christmas too). We didn't always use the peanuts and they were still good. We always called them spider cookies (think of all of those legs). Yum! These would be easy to scoop using a cookie scoop.
