Graveyard Pudding Cookie Cups are now an old-fashioned Halloween treat. These Cups are filled with cookies crumb dust and the creamy center is made from the chocolate pudding. Each is decorated with a cookie tombstone as well as a candy pumpkin. They’d make a great after-school treat or a holiday celebration!
Halloween is among the holidays that are great to create spooky recipes. If you’re planning a Halloween-themed dinner, my Feet Loaf recipe is certainly worth a try! The Cookies made of Monster Peanut Butter are a new favorite with my family, however, these Caramel Apple Nachos are close behind!
One of my very first Halloween memories was at an elementary school Halloween party. It was the time when schools permitted homemade desserts, as well as peanut allergies, were few and few.
My friend’s mom made graveyard cakes using little gravestones made of cookies as well as candy corn pumpkins. The cake was also decorated with Cool Whip ghosts with chocolate chip eyes.
My classmates as well as I oohed and marveled over her masterpiece.
