Graveyard Pudding


18 pieces chocolate sandwich cookies such as Oreos

½ c. powdered sugar

2 tbsp. cocoa powder

2 c. whole milk, cold

2 (3.5 oz) packages instant chocolate pudding

½ tsp. kosher salt

2 c. heavy cream, cold

1 tsp. vanilla

Gummy worms, coconut mixed with green food coloring for grass, sugar cookie tombstones, any fun edible Halloween decorations for garnish


1. Place the cookies in a food processor and pulse until they become like wet sand. Place the powdered sugar and cocoa powder in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the milk, 2 boxes of pudding mix, and salt and whisk until it is smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.

2. Add the heavy cream and vanilla and beat with a hand mixer for 3-4 minutes or until it thickens into a pudding. Spread the pudding into a 9x13 baking dish and smooth with a spatula. Sprinkle on the cookie “dirt” and then decorate with the green coconut, worms and any other fun decorations you can think of. Place in the fridge if not immediately serving. Serve cold and enjoy!
