"I made these easy cookies, however just used two mini chocolate chips for eyes. I did not do an outline and they turned out very cute!!!!"

"The recipe does not match the picture. Do you use black icing or melted chocolate to outline?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2010

"I made these for a Halloween party and they were almost completely gone, i didn't even get to try one since people snatched them up to take home. Everyone told me they were amazing and really cute. I did use a toothpick to hold them with and used another toothpick to use a leverage to get the toothpick unlodged and then covered the hole. they were slightly messy to make and the edges did not end up looking as perfect as the picture but all in all, I will definitely make them again!!!"
