Graveyard Cookie Jar

This is one dessert they'll be dying to dig into! Fill a large glass cookie jar with crumbs from your favorite chocolate cake along with white chocolate bones (we used skeleton candy molds from Wilton). Layer in tombstone sugar cookies (we used tombstone and cross cutters) decorated with gray, black, and purple royal icing. Pipe in tufts of grass using green-tinted buttercream. Push in a cemetery sign made from cardstock and painted wood skewers.
