No Bake Skeleton Puzzle Cookies + Halloween Treat Bag Topper!!


I just loved the skeleton cookies I saw
made by one of my favorite gals, Sue
at Munchkin Munchies but time is tight so
I came up with a fun No BAKE way 
to make this happen for my little "ghoul"!!!

This is what you need:

*Nabisco 100 calorie Oreo Thins
*Black Edible Food Writer
*Frosting (either royal icing or buttercream)
 *A way to pipe the frosting either by
placing in a ziploc bag and cutting the tip
or using a piping bag and a size 1 or 2 piping tip. 
Either way will work just great!
Pipe your white frosting on the cookies 
as you see here, or any way you want!

Now have your super cute ghoul
arrange the bones in order!!

HOW HUMERUS!  (ok, sorry that was lame....)

I think it would be so fun to put these into a
treat bag with this cute Treat Bag Topper I made
from PicMonkey.  This was my FIRST try at making treat bag toppers myself and it was fun.  

The only way I could have done it was with a 
great tutorial from  The Barefoot Baker HERE! 
Stop by and check it out!

You can copy and paste from BELOW into word and print
or email me for the file, I think it prints/looks better 
with the original file, honestly.

No Bones about it...Happy Halloween!

this might be a dumb question but if you did buttercream could you still put them in a bag i don't know personally if buttercream dries like royal icing?? serious question lol!

teena said...

so i answered my own question by googling and found out the answer is NO! but i found this recipe from:

Meringue Powder Buttercream (says it hardens like RI but taste like buttercream)

1/3 cup water

3 T. meringue powder

½ cup shortening

4 ½ cups powdered sugar (1 lb. 3 oz. If you have a scale)

1 tsp. vanilla extract (use clear vanilla if you want a pure white icing)

¼ tsp. almond extract

Place half of the powdered sugar and the meringue powder in the bowl of an electric mixer. Whisk together well. Turn on mixer (use whip attachment) and, while motor is running, slowly stream in the water. Mix until everything is incorporated. Turn mixer to high speed and whip until stiff peaks form. Add flavorings and mix well. Change to paddle attachment (for stand mixer) or dough hook (for Bosch). If using a hand mixer, use the same beaters you were using before. Add remaining powdered sugar and shortening and whip for 2-3 minutes more.

Note: Don't skimp on the whipping time after adding the shortening. You really need to whip it well to prevent separation later.
