    I made these to take to a meeting and everyone loved them. They are so easy to prepare and so cute. I'll be making these again and again.

    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?

    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!!!

    At home, my boyfriend couldn't get enough of these. At work, they went like hotcakes. Easy to make, quick, and very yummy. I would have put Excellent, but I usually leave that rating for Godiva like desserts :D

    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!

    very easy, lots of fun!!! My son's birthday is around Halloween and we made them for his school snack as a change of pace from cupcake. Young children can help with putting on the eyes

    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!!
