Crunchy Chocolate Skeleton Cookies

(Last Updated On: )

Skeleton Cookies

When it comes to Halloween I prefer cutesy costumes/decorations to spooky ones.

The same holds true when it comes to food. Each year we get a cookbook in them mail filled with "bloody punch" and "spider" tacos. No way not for me! Just looking at that book makes me squirm!

These cookies are little bit spooky without being too much.

Got a gingerbread man cookie cutter and a plastic bag? Then you can make these!
