Ghosts In the Graveyard

Are you planning a spooky Halloween dinner?!  Well, this dessert is always a crowd-pleaser in our family!  Every Halloween Night, we feast on the chocolate deliciousness of Ghosts in the Graveyard.  This year, we celebrated early with a great big family Halloween party on Saturday night.  I'll share some details of the food and games later this week, but let's start with dessert, shall we?  I always like to eat desserts first--especially this one!  I look forward to it all year long.
Ghosts in the Graveyard
3 1/2 c. cold milk
2 packages (4-serving size) Jello Chocolate Instant Pudding/Pie Filling
1 tub Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed
1 package (16 oz.) crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (We love Oreos!)
Milano cookies and candy for decorating
1.  Make pudding as directed on package, using 3 1/2 cups milk.  Let stand 5 minutes.
2.  Stir in 3 cups of the whipped topping and half of the crushed cookies.
3.  Spoon into 9x13 dish.  Sprinkle with remaining crushed cookies.  Refrigerate 1 hour.
4.  Decorate with candy corn, Milano's (tombstones), and spoonfuls of whipped topping (ghosts).
Decorating is the fun part of this dessert!  My mom is the expert here.  She turns the Milano's into tombstones and makes the perfect ghosts!  It's positively sinful!  Enjoy!

  1. just gotta say that I LOVE reading your blog! Wish we lived closer so your Crafty Super-Mommy-ness would rub off on me!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog last night and absolutely loved visiting your inspirational blog. Pure creative brilliance post after post.

    The Halloween booklet that you created is AMAZING. This morning my three children did the "Hookey Spookey' and we all loved it. We also used your Haloween fine motor skills that you prepared. Thank you so much for creating such a brilliant resource that we are enjoying Down Under in the land of Oz. We really appreciate the enormous amount of work that you put into it. I hope to publish a blog post tonight with a few pictures of my children doing the Halloween Hokey Pokey.
