Halloween Chocolate pots biscuits:

Ingredients:
  • 50g Oreo cookies crushed 
  • 180g unsalted butter softened, 
  • 112g caster sugar 1 large egg beaten
  • Couple of drops of vanilla extract
  • 200g plain flour, sifted half a table spoon baking powder
  • 100g dark chocolate melted to decorate
Method:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F gas mark 6, line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Begin by crushing the Oreo cookies and putting them to one side.
  3. In a large bowl or using an electric mixer beat the butter with the caster sugar until light and creamy, Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract. Add the flour and baking powder and blend until soft dough is formed 
  4. Add the crushed Oreo cookies to the mixture and combine fully until you have a speckled looking dough
  5. refrigerate the dough for at least one hour
  6. on a floured surface roll out dough to approx half a centre meter thickness, with a sharp knife cut out tombstone shapes and place cookies apart on the tray
  7. Bake the cookies until the edges are slightly browned for approximately 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely before handling
  8. Using a small piping bag with a small nozzle fill with the melting chocolate and pipe the letters RIP
  9. Place an RIP tombstone in the centre of each glass and then sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookie crumb around the biscuit to look like soil and stones.

  
The chocolate pots were delicious when they were finished you could taste the creamy natural yogurt in the pot, I thought that perhaps they could of done with more milk chocolate than dark they were quite thick in texture and very sweet in taste. 
The Biscuits were really nice and there was too much dough so I ended up with lots of Halloween biscuits they were really nice though and the boys loved them! I didn't pipe the lettering on the tombstone biscuits on my pots as I had no icing but I would love to know how you get on if you make some?
