Plated + Served: Save-A-Step Gingerbread Skeletons


One of my favorite Halloween activities… decorating GingerDEAD Men!

Here’s a super easy recipe I came up with for my friends at  Right@Home. What makes the  Save-A-Step Gingerbread Skeletons recipe so simple is the “secret” ingredient: boxed cake mix! Let the kids help decorate these little men with their favorite candy or sweet topping. Make them scary or BOO-tiful… but get creative!
