Twist top and bottom halves of each cookie in opposite directions to separate the cookie halves, leaving all the creme on one half of each cookie.


Carve out the creme into a skull shape as shown in photo using small metal spatula, toothpick or wooden skewer, carefully removing and discarding the creme from around the skulls. 


Use toothpick to carve out 2 small holes in the creme filling in each skull for the eyes. Discard the removed creme filling.
