Take one of your small ziplock bags and put about 1/3 of the white chocolate melts in the bag and seal it as air tight as possible.
Stick the bag in the microwave and put it on for 1 minute. This should be plenty of time to melt all the chocolate. Take a pair of scissors and snip one of the corners off, not too much! Just enough to do some detail work.

Step 3: Bones and Tombstones!

Use your bag of melted white chocolate to fill up the skeleton chocolate mold. Or on a piece of parchment paper, just pipe out some random sized bones.
Then take a couple of your Hershey bars and break them into single blocks.
On the smooth side of the Hershey blocks, pip on random tombstone designs such as "R.I.P" and Crosses.

Step 4: Dirt!

Next, grab your large ziplock bag and a portion of your chocolate fudge cookies. How many you need really just depends on how big of a cake stand or plate you have. I used about half for mine, but it was a pretty good sized cake stand.
Take your hammer or meat mallet and let all your pent up rage and stress be put into destroying those cookies! Pound them out until your cookies resemble a course dirt/pebble substance. Set the bag aside for now.

Note: If you use a meat mallet, be sure to use the side without any teeth or you will tear holes in your bag and make a mess!
