Yummy Halloween Treat - What do you want on your tombstone?

Here's a fun, edible Halloween project (all credit goes to my Aunt M). For more WFMW ideas, visit Rocks In My Dryer.

You will need:
A box of ice cream (preferably the old block style)
Oreo-type cookies, crushed
Milano cookies
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Ziploc sandwich baggie

Cut the block of ice cream in half lengthwise and then cut it into 1 1/2 inch slabs. Lay them each on a plate.

Cover each slab with the Oreo 'dirt' and place in the freezer.
Melt 1/4 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave (30 seconds at a time & stir) until smooth. Spoon it into the baggie and barely snip off one of the corners.
Squeeze out the chocolate on the Milano cookie 'tombstones' - we chose to write R.I.P.
Pull them out of the freezer, and push the cookies down into the grave at one end (like in the picture). Dig in!

These are very yummy!

I should try this with my kids. I bet it is even better with mint chocolate-chip ice-cream.
