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

"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!!!"

"I made these last year for my granddaughters b-day party which is always a Halloween theme. This year I made them as witches toes for her party. I added green food coloring to white chocolate discs(if you use the white bark it will seize up after adding food coloring). Cut a black candy dot in half and put in on the top as the toe nail. They were as cute as the ghosts. The kids loved them! Love the snowman idea also!"

"Made these for my daughter's kindergarten Halloween party and they were gone in a flash. In fact, one Momma loaded up a napkin full and took 'em home. Guess I need to make extras next time!!"
