If you’re looking for a spooky dessert for your Halloween party, look no further. How about an edible cemetery–complete with tombstones and pumpkins?
You’ve probably had this dessert before. You may know it as Dirt Pudding: an easy, quick classic that everyone loves. You really can’t go wrong with Dirt Pudding. It’s cream cheese pudding with alternating layers of crushed cream-filled chocolate cookie sandwiches, which have a cake-like texture after sitting in the pudding while in the refrigerator. It’s the kind of dessert you can scoop and dump into a bowl and enjoy every last bite.
Switch up Dirt Pudding this Halloween by making this Cemetery Cookie Dessert from Gooseberry Patch. Layer the pudding and cookies in a rectangle dish instead of a large bowl. Create some tombstones out of extra sandwich cookies and arrange them across the top. Don’t forget to add some candy pumpkins! I think some chocolate trees or marshmallow ghosts would make a great addition too.
I have many memories of making Dirt Pudding with my mom when I was younger, so definitely get your kids in the kitchen to help you make this spooky treat! It’s fun for all ages, and it’s even more fun to eat.
