I’ve definitely heard of tombstone brownies, vegetable graveyards and the like, but today I am here to show you how to make an edible cookie graveyard for your Halloween party this year. I can’t help myself, it is simply so much fun to do with kids and everyone loves seeing a sweet platter of tombstones when they walk into a Halloween party! Well, maybe not that last part, but this really is a fun craft for the whole family. See just how many cool tombstones you can make. I know we had fun roughing up the edges of some cookies to make them look “weathered.” Enjoy!
The Edible Graveyard
1 box brownie mix
Milano Cookies (both vanilla and chocolate)
1 package Nabisco Chocolate Wafers
Decorating gel pens
1. Bake the brownies according to the directions to make cakey brownies. Allow to cool completely.
2. Meanwhile, blitz the chocolate wafer in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. Or you can use crushed oreo cookie crumbs that you buy at the store. Once the brownies have cooled spread them in an even layer on top of the brownies.
3. Write the epitaphs or notes on half of the Milano cookies and stick them, writing part up, in the brownie. Add any ghoulish spiders or the like around the gravestones. Make sure some of the stones are tilted or even broken to look like a true creepy graveyard.
