I had some lady finger cookies left over from a shoot I did, so that part was easy. You could use store bought ladyfingers (from Italian markets used primarily for tiarmisu) or milano cookies, just dust them with powdered sugar.
Broke the 'teeth' off of the bottom of pieces of candy corn -nice gingivitis - and used the yellow tops for spooky jaundice eyes
Melt some semi-sweet chocolate and put it in a piping bag with a tiny tip. You could also use a ziploc bag with a small corner of the bag snipped off. Just be careful pouring the hot chocolate (place bag in cup to stabilize it, cuff folded down) Use the chocolate to wiggle out some smiles, eyeliner, noses. Use it as a glue to hold the candy corn pieces in place.
You could also decorate them as headstones, ghosts, coffins...and lay them out on a brownie graveyard! Even one in a bowl of ice cream would be cute too. Sweet & Spooky
living and loving life, everyday, with springtime hope and promise.
