1. Here's what you'll need to make the tombstones.
2. Start by microwaving the chocolate until smooth. Then, stir in the peanut butter and cocoa powder.
3. Add the oats and then use your hands to mash the cookies together. Don't be shy about really getting in there, you want it to be evenly mixed.
4. Pinch off about two tablespoons of dough and mold into a tombstone shape.

Let the cookies sit for about 20 minutes, or until the icing hardens.
