  • In a medium bowl stir 1 package of frosting with the cookie crumbs. Frost cooled cupcakes.

  • Fill a pastry bag, fitted with a plain tip, with remaining white frosting. Write R.I.P. on each chocolate covered graham cracker cookie. Stand a decorated cookie on top of each cupcake so that it looks like a tombstone. Place the cupcakes on a large cookie sheet that has been covered with green paper. Place paper ghosts and bats randomly through the graveyard. Serve!

I've used these the last two years for my daughter's Halloween party at school and the kids love them. I add black and orange gummi worms crawling out of the cupcakes and candy pumpkins. Read More

Great quick recipe!I added a few extra effects to go with the graveyard theme. I tinted sweetened coconut flakes with green food coloring to make grass added some gummy worms and used candy cake decorations in place of the "RIP" on the tombstones. Kids loved it. Thanks! Read More

My Husband and I made these for our sons 1st grade Halloween party yesterday. They were such a hit!! And so easy to make. My previous cupcake decorations took a few hours to create but this was so cute and simple. I used Milano cookies for the tombstones and wrote RIP in black with little orange crosses I also added a little candy pumpkin next to the grave. The looked and tasted great. I also used french vanilla cake mix instead of chocolate because it tastes so much better. Read More

Use clean plastic doll parts as decorations. A fresh grave with a Barbie arm (or two) sticking out is frightful. Read More

This was great! I did it with my boyfriend on halloween night and we gave these to the trick or treaters. I didn't use the cookie crumbs tho I used chocolate sprinkles over green colored vanilla frosting to make it look like a recently dug-up grave. Also I don't recomend cameo cookies they make the cupcake paper fall off because they are too heavy unless you separate the cookie and use only one side. Read More

I brought this dish to a Halloween party and they went so fast I didn't even get to try one! Good thing I saved one at home... One tip though: don't use chocolate frosting you don't get the same colour effect as you do when mixing the vanilla frosting and cookie crumbs. Read More
