This graveyard pudding is sure to be a hit with guests of all ages. It’s quick and very simple to make and adds just the right festive touch to any Halloween party.
Ingredients for Graveyard pudding:
Box of Chocolate pudding (large size serving, we use sugar free)
Milk (to make your pudding)
Pumpkin shaped Halloween Candy (the ones that are like Candy corn in the shape of a pumpkin)
Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies (perfect gravestone shape!)
Dec A Cake Black Writing Gel
After you make your pudding, pour it into a square shaped dish. If you do not have a square shaped dish , use whatever you have on hand. I just found for the graveyard look, a square dish worked quite well. Put the pudding in the fridge for a couple of hours so it will get firm enough to build your graveyard on. When your pudding is ready, take it out and get ready to make yourself a spooky Halloween graveyard.
First put your plain chocolate cookies into a bag and crumble them up. I don’t recommend using Oreo’s with white filling because it will leave your graveyard with white specks. Try to get a cookie that is completely chocolate. When it was time to crumble up my cookies, I used a can to beat them into small pieces and chunks. Next add your chocolate cookie crumbs to the top of your pudding. The cookie crumbs act as the graveyard dirt so be sure to cover the entire top of the pudding.
The next step is to grab your tombstone shaped Milano cookies and write on them with your Dec A Cake black writing gel. I found that the only things that would fit on the tombstone was RIP and a cross. There are other cookies that could work as a tombstone but the Milanos, in my opinion, are the perfect cookie to use. The edges are lined a little bit with chocolate so it makes the cookie stand out more once it’s on top of your pudding graveyard. You can put however many tombstones you want on your graveyard. When I made it, I used five cookies and spaced them out.
Now add your pumpkins to give it that Halloween feel. You could also add some of those Peep shaped ghosts that stores sell around Halloween to make it seem more spooky. I don’t recommend using a lot of pumpkins because it will get overcrowded and may not look as cute. When you’re done putting it together, refrigerate it until it’s time to be served.
Graveyard Pudding is an affordable Halloween dessert to make. I had a really good time making it and it was even more thrilling to see the smiles from my family when I presented it to them. This is one dessert that aims to please.
