Graveyard pudding is a chocolaty dessert that is perfect for making and serving during Halloween time. It is a very rich dessert that is not only spooky, but cute and funny as well; for this reason, it is equally loved by kids and elders. You can easily make this dessert on the day as well as in advance for a Halloween party.
Whole Milk - 3 ½ cups
Chocolate Pudding Mix - two packs
Cool Whip topping - 1 Tub
Chocolate sandwich cookies such as Oreo's (crushed) - 1 pound
Candy corn - To taste
Pumpkin candies - As required
Decorator icing (Brown or Black) - As required
Rectangular sandwich cookies such as Peanut Butter Finger cookies - As required
Mix together 3 ½ cups of milk and two packs of chocolate pudding mix in a standing mixer, set to the lowest speed, until everything is well blended - about 2 to 3 minutes.
Stop the mixer and stir one tub of cool whip into the pudding mixture.
Then, add half of the crushed Oreo cookies and mix with a plastic spatula - do not process with the mixer.
Transfer this mixture to a 13 by 9 inch baking dish and top with the remaining crushed Oreo cookies.
Cool the pudding mix in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Meanwhile, prepare the tombstones and other structures for your graveyard pudding.
To create the tombstones, take a rectangular sandwich cookie and outline it with black frosting, to give it the shape of a tombstone.
With the brown frosting, write words like “RIP” or dates like “25th Oct. 1955”.
Fix the cookie tombstones into the pudding just like the real ones standing in a graveyard.
To create the border around your graveyard pudding, poke candy corn around the outer edges of the casserole, with alternating candies facing up and down respectively.
This will create a fence around your graveyard pudding.
Finish your project by randomly sprinkling pumpkin-shaped candies throughout the graveyard pudding.
This will make your graveyard pudding look like a real graveyard, with tombstones and pumpkins spread all over.
