Halloween is almost upon us and, what better way to get into the scary spirit than baking up these cute mummified mint chocolate cookies!

But first, give these cookies a go and be sure to tag us in your very own creations at @grenadeofficial.
First, preheat the oven to 180°C and lightly grease a cookie sheet or baking tray
Then, in a large bowl, add in all of the ingredients and combine to create the cookie dough mix
Next, divide the mixture into 9 cookie dough balls
Evenly place them on the cookie sheet and pat them gently into round 'cookie' shapes (roughly 1cm thick)
Then, place the cookies into the middle of the oven for 5 minutes - they will be soft when they come out so leave them to cool and harden. While they cool, you can make the topping!
Add all the topping ingredients together in a cup and mix with a teaspoon, making sure there are no lumps. Once thoroughly mixed, place into a piping bag
Then, place all the cookies on a sheet of greaseproof paper and add a small dot of icing on the back of the edible sugar eyes and add them to the cookies
Next, pipe the icing onto the cookies, crisscrossing and avoiding the edible eyes!
Once you've iced each cookie, lift it up gently and place onto a cooling rack. This makes sure the excess icing is removed from the edges
Leave the icing to cool and harden, then your cookies are ready to eat and enjoy!
