Heat oven to 375°F. In a medium bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 70 balls, using about 1 teaspoon of dough for each. Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, about two inches apart.
Bake about 5 minutes or until golden around edges but still soft in center. Carefully remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
Spoon frosting into decorating bag or resealable food-storage plastic bag with corner cut off. For each cookie stack, pipe frosting on 1 cookie and then top with 4 more cookies, piping frosting in between each.
On lightly greased work surface, knead fondant about 2 minutes to soften. Roll fondant with rolling pin until thin. With sharp knife, cut fondant into 14 (5-inch) rounds, using 5-inch-diameter bowl for pattern and re-rolling scraps, if needed.
Pipe more frosting on top of each cookie stack. Place 1 fondant round on top of each stack, draping over sides and adhering to frosting on top cookie. Use edible marker to draw ghost faces.
