What is not to love about these Chocolate Skeleton Cookies? They are chocolate, cookies, and spooky all in one. My kids love to add these Chocolate Skeleton Cookies in their lunch box for school and even asked me to make them again for their Halloween Party. These are not just for kids, adults can enjoy them too. 😉

If you are looking for something else spooky, try the Halloween Popcorn with candy eyeballs.
