    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Combine flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and baking powder in a large bowl; stir with a fork to mix ingredients well.
    3. Combine butter, caster sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract and beat until smooth and fluffy. Add in flour mixture with a spatula, a little at a time until well incorporated. Fold in 250g chocolate chips until well combined.
    4. Spoon mounds of the cookie dough onto ungreased baking trays. Push about 3 to 4 chocolate chips onto each cookie, tip-side down, to make the spider bodies.
    5. Bake in the the preheated oven until edges are golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking tray for 1 minute before removing to a cooling rack.
    6. Melt remaining chocolate chips in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring often, until melted. Transfer melted chocolate into a piping bag with a small tip and draw little legs on each side of the spider bodies to create spider legs.


    I ended up only drawing 3 legs on each side of the spider for lack of space - it works just as well. If you draw 4 legs on each side, the spiders look more like suns!
