Author: Donsuemor

Serves: 12 skulls


  • 12 Traditional, Chocolate, or Lemon Zest Madeleines
  • 2 cups White Frosting

    • Sinister Slivered Almond Teeth: Arrange slivered almonds along the bottom edge of the Madeleine to form the teeth of your skulls. These almonds bring a satisfying crunch and a hint of nuttiness to each bite.
  4. Bring on the Spookiness: With your assembly complete, behold the transformation of your Madeleines into eerie Sweet Skulls! Each element—minty eyes, a chocolaty nose, and almond teeth—contributes to the spine-tingling charm of these cookies.
