  6. Frost tops only of each brownie with chocolate frosting. Place dollop of chocolate frosting on one end of each brownie; place unwrapped tombstone candy into dollop. Place two wooden picks** directly behind tombstone and into brownie for support. Sprinkle frosting with green tinted coconut to resemble grass on grave.
