This was such a fun and easy Halloween treat! I had too many little ones coming to our party and didn't want to use toothpicks to anchor the tombstone cookies. I cut the rice krispie treats in two parts and dipped one end on each piece into the chocolate. I then placed the cookie in between the two chocolate dipped ends and pressed them together with the cookie sandwiched in between them. This was soo easy and worked great because the chocolate hardens once dried. Plus, once you cover the chocolate with coconut grass, you cannot see any excess chocolate.
I used lemon and strawberry Gluten free glutino wafer cookies as the tombstones and iced over them. Everything else was th same. It was very doable and really is a standout holiday treat!
Loved these. I had a tombstone cookie cutter so I used that instead of making my own tombstones. These were delicious and the rice krispy treats turned out perfect. The trick is really to put your stove on the lowest heat and wait and wait. It takes forever, but this will give you soft and chewy rice krispy's as apposed to hard ones. The hardest part for me was sticking the toothpicked cookies into the rice krispy treats without messing up the frosting on the cookies. Great recipe though
This makes a very cute presentation but if you live in a moist state like Florida you might have a problem. I bought the store bought cookie dough and it did not need any extra flour. As the cookies bake they really spreads out. As soon as they come out of the oven I had to trim them all to look like head stones again because they looked like blobs. Work quickly they set up fast. After frosting the cookies they became very most and some broke. As for writing with the gel, I also tried using a toothpick but it was a pain so I went to my trusty piping bag and used Royal frosting to write on the cookies. All in all it came out well, I put the broke cookies across the tombstones and it actually looked more authentic. The guests were thrilled and how can rice crispy treats attached to a sugar cookie not taste good? Thanks for the recipe.
I was so looking forward to attempting these even though I was somewhat intimidated by the challenge, but I was amazed by how easy they actually were to make! The results are so impressive and everyone loved them! The other thing that impressed me was how much I enjoyed the flavors of the Rice Krispy bar with the chocolate and the coconut (I left it un-toasted too-it was still fabulous!)-delicious! It was fun coming up with different sayings for the tombstones and this ended up being one of my favorite new recipes for the Halloween season. Thanks so much for the fun recipe and the nummy treats!
Like the person from Fla said, my cookies did not come out right at all. However....I was not tricked! I had Biscoff cookies in the cupboard, and did 2 per Rice Krispie treat vs one cookie. I frosted the backside of the cookie which was level vs the front which has a design on it. My husband loves the idea...I made them for him to take to work tomorrow. I bought store bought rice krispie treats in the value pack...so I got 16 treats. At Walgreens they had packages of pumpkins and candy corns that were just about perfect for making these. I dumped the extra candy corn in the pan for the grazers!
This is a great recipe. Perfect for halloween. Thanks for sharing
I made these for my son's kindergarten Halloween party and the children LOVED them. What I like best about them is, since I had to make a ton of them I could buy everything "pre-made" and just assemble it, so it went much quicker than if I had to make everything from scratch first. It was pretty time consuming assembling them, but worth it for the kids!
We had a lot of fun making these. Although I am def. not a good sculpture!! I did not have a cookie cutter to make tombstones so I free handed it. But nevertheless the party at daycare was a hit and the kids gobbled them up!! Thank you for such a fun and very easy recipe!!
We had fun. I made my own cookie dough as we cannot buy plain cookie dough in Australia. I made the cookies in shape of headstones and then covered them in grey icing (frosting with black colouring). We then added more black to leftover icing for the writing. We too did not have any halloween lollies so we used worms.
