These are the perfect spooky treat to take your kids Halloween party. The look on the kids faces as they see the tombstones and the bones in the ‘graveyard’.  We took chessman cookies and sprayed them with edible gray glitter to make them look more like tombstones.

We decorated the cookies with fairy dust edible glitter in a gray color. Be sure to put parchment paper down and expect to have a little dust flying in the air too.

When Can I Decorate the Brownies?

Wait until the brownies have cooled, but the frosting is still wet.  You won’t have to worry about cracks in the frosting if you do it this way.  The decorations will also set into the frosting and not move around.
