Wicked Craft Week: Spooky Graveyard Cookie Halloween Treat (Charleston Crafted)

So much wicked inspiration going on over here this week.
This next Halloween idea from Charleston Crafted is sure to give some chills and thrills and I bet the kiddos will love it!

Hey y'all! I'm Morgan from Charleston Crafted & I'm so excited to be sharing a fun little Halloween baking idea here at Wicked Week!

Spooky Graveyard Cookie Cake

I love to bake yummy treats, and especially love using a box mix to get things started. Feel free to substitute your favorite cookie recipe, and add crushed oreo to the mix for a similar dirt effect. These also make great individual cookies, if you're having a party!
  • Hersheys Cookies n Cream Premium Cookie Mix & ingredients to make it
  • Gummy Skeletons (found in the Halloween section at Target)
  • 5 oreos, crushed
  • Peppermint patties (1 per grave)
What you do:
  1. Make the cookie dough according to the box (or recipe!)

  1. Spread in a baking dish. I used a small rectangle but a round cake would look adorable, as well.

  1. Bake until golden brown. For me, it was about 15 minutes. Be sure to use a toothpick to check the center of the cake to make sure that it is cooked all the way through.

  1. Let the cake cool.
  2. Time to decorate! Start by placing out your skeletons. Space out their "graves" across your cake.

  1. Now, make the grave stones. Unwrap a peppermint pattie for each grave. Use a knife to slice off the bottom 1/4 of each patty, so you have a flat edge.

  1. Place the headstones over each skeleton.

  1. Spoon crushed oreo over each skeleton. I like good coverage, but to leave the feet hanging out to be extra spooky!

Enjoy! I hope you have a happy & yummy halloween!
