Ghosts in Graveyard

Every Halloween when my kids were little, we would make Ghosts in the Graveyard together. Not only is it delicious, but making it is an activity that all family members can do together, like building a gingerbread house for Christmas.


  • 3 cups cold milk
  • 2 pkg. (4-serving size each) chocolate instant pudding
  • 1 tub (12 oz.) Cool Whip Topping, thawed, divided
  • 15 chocolate sandwich cookies, crushed
  • Assorted decorations: Cameo or Milano sandwich cookies, decorating gel, candy pumpkins, candy corn

Pour milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Let stand 5 min.

Gently stir in 3 cups of the whipped topping and half of the cookie crumbs. Spread evenly into 13x9-inch baking dish; sprinkle with the remaining cookie crumbs.

Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, decorate creme sandwich cookies with decorating gel to resemble tombstones. Set aside until ready to use.

Insert decorated cookies into top of dessert just before serving. Add candies. Drop large spoonfuls of the remaining whipped topping onto dessert to resemble ghosts. Cover and store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
