Halloween is around the corner and this means that all you DIY Diva’s are kicking into high gear! This season really wow your guests by making these DIY Day of the Dead Skull Cookies. People will be so impressed by your creativity and mad skills! Not to mention that these make for such a fun and unique dessert at all your fall gatherings! Place the cookies on top of mini plastic martini glasses filled with milk and you have the most CUTEtastic dessert in all the land! Your kids will also LOVE this sweet and spooky treat!

1) Make a batch of skull shaped Sugar Cookies. You can easily do this by grabbing a log of Phillsbury pre-made sugar cookie dough from any super market (who has time to make their own? Seriously) and a super cute skull cookie cutter from Target! After you cut out your skulls make a hole for the “nose” where a paper straw will fit through. You can make this hole by using a metal straw if you have one or carefully with a paper straw. A knife point also works well.


2) Let cookies cool and then frost them with white cookie icing and let dry for and hour. Pour yourself a nice glass of Souv Blanc while you wait. That’s an order ladies!


3) Take your Wilton Food Markers (found at Michaels or Party City) and go to town on fun skull designs. You can follow the styles I made or create your own.


4) You are almost there! Now, take mini martini cups (found at Party City) ¬†and fill them half way with milk. Place straws through your cookie “nose” holes and set them on top of the martini glasses. Voila! You have the most incredible DIY treat for all your Fall and Halloween entertaining.
