Jack Skellington Cookies

Pin It Jack Skellington Cookies

Every October, my Jack Skellington coffee mug is used and doll proudly sits on my desk. This year, I bought a nice plaque from Walgreens as seen below. I love Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas movie and for Halloween,  I just have to make Jack Skellington cookies. Jack Skellington is the "Pumpkin King" of Halloween town and is one of my favorite animated characters.

I used Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers to make the Jack molds. To melt the candy wafers, place in a pastry bag that is knotted on top in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until they melt. My candy wafers took about 1 1/2 minutes to melt. Snip the tip and fill your molds. Tap the molds on your counter top to pop any air bubbles. Freeze for 15 minutes and carefully release. I kept the jack skellington candies in the fridge until I needed them.

I first decorated each cookie with Royal Icing and while it was wet, I pressed a Jack Skellington candy on top. I let the cookies dry overnight.
