Prep Time10 mins

For the green buttercream frosting:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup butter (salted or unsalted), softened
- 2 teaspoons milk
- green food coloring a few drops, to reach your desired color
Line an 8'' baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a little bit of overhang on the sides so that you'll be able to easily pull the brownies out of the pan.
Pour brownie batter into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Bake according to recipe instructions.
Allow brownies to cool completely. Pull up on the parchment paper and transfer the brownies to a flat surface.
Cut the brownies into rectangles. (I cut mine 4 x 3 to make 12 rectangle brownies).
Mix all of the frosting ingredients together in a bowl. Mix for 2 minutes until light and fluffy. (Add a little more powdered sugar to make the mixture thicker, or another dash of milk to make it thinner, as needed.)
Mix in a few drops of green food coloring. Set aside.
Use the black (edible) gel pen to write the letter R-I-P on the top of each milano cookie. I also cut the very bottom edge off of my cookies to make the "headstones" a little shorter, but you don't have to.
Press each cookie into the top of the brownie, as if it were a grave headstone.
Spoon a a little green frosting onto the bottoms of the candy pumpkins and add them near the cookie.
*You can make the brownies from scratch, or use a box mix. This recipe is for an 8x8'' pan of brownies. I use this chocolate brownie recipe, but I cut the ingredients in half, to bake it in an 8x8'' pan. Or, you can make a 9x13'' pan, and double the amount of cookies, candy pumpkins, and frosting used in this recipe.
If using a box mix, I would suggest Ghirardelli brand of brownie mix. They're made for an 8x8'' pan, and the quality is better than most.
*Black decorating gel should be easily found in the baking aisle (near the birthday candles etc.) at your local grocery store, or at Walmart.
