How to make spooky Tombstone Cookies

  1. In the microwave, melt about 1/4 cup chocolate chips in a sandwich bag. I started with 30 seconds, then took about the bag and gently massaged it to see how much melting had occurred. It it needs more time, try 10 second intervals and repeat the process.
  2. Lay out the Milano cookies on a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper.
  3. Snip off a tiny corner of the sandwich bag–start small, you can always cut more off if you need it. You don’t want it a very big opening–the bigger the opening, the larger the writing, which makes it harder to control.
  4. Push all of the chocolate to that end, then use it as a piping bag to write RIP on each cookie.
  5. Once the chocolate has cooled and hardened, you can pack them up to give as gifts, or lay out on serving plates.

I layered my cookies in darling Halloween cupcake liners that I found out the grocery store. If you can’t find specific liners for Halloween, you can always use any that are black and white polka dot, stripe, or patterned.
