Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pan makes the best cookies. They are shaped perfectly. There is no room for error. I made my favorite sugar cookie recipe and colored it green then iced the nails black. They were a hit at our halloween party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We make these every year for my kid's annual Halloween party. First off, I make the cookies and color them a nice solid green. I then take a painting brush and paint them with green chocolate. I use the Wilton candy melts in "Vibrant Green". I let that all cool then apply the edible gold dust powder. It makes them look glittery and magic. Then I apply red gel and an almond sliver nail. The teens ask for these things every single year. I actually bring them to work and some of the guys won't eat them. Say they're creepy. Haha! I love it.
