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!
