Graveyard Pudding Cookie Cups

Graveyard Pudding Cookie Cups have become such a classic Halloween dessert.  These individual cups are filled with cookie crumb dirt and a creamy center created with chocolate pudding. Each of them are embellished with a cookie tombstone and candy pumpkin. They would be a great after school treat or holiday party!

Halloween is one of those holidays that is fun to make spooky treats for. If you have a themed dinner my Feet Loaf recipe is definitely worthy! These Monster Peanut Butter Cookie Bars have become a new favorite with my family, but these Caramel Apple Nachos are a close second!

Spooky Graveyard Pudding Cookie Cups

One of my first Halloween memories as a class party.  This was when schools allowed homemade treats and peanut allergies were far and few between.

My friends mother made a graveyard cake with little cookie tombstones and candy corn pumpkins.  She also piped on Cool Whip ghosts with chocolate chip eyes.

All of my classmates and I oohed and awed over her creation.

How To Make Graveyard Pudding Cups

  1. With black frosting (with a small frosting top) or with an edible marker, write RIP on each of the Milano cookies creating a tombstone. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, whisk together pudding mix and milk together on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  3. Fold in cool whip until well blended.
  4. Crush Oreos until they are fine crumbs using a food processor.
  5. Sprinkle 3-4 TBSP of crumbs into the bottom of 6 clear 9 oz. clear plastic cups.
  6. Press a few googley eyes around the edges between the crumbs and the cup so it looks like they are peaking out.
  7. Spoon in a layer of pudding on evenly on top.
  8. Repeat the last three step one more time.
  9. End the layers by sprinkling more crumbs on top until they almost reach the lip of the cup.
  10. Firmly insert one cookie tombstone into the center of each pudding cup.
  11. Gently press in a candy pumpkin beside each tombstone.
  12. Embellish with gummy worms if desired.
