These Halloween graveyard treats are fun for any school or home party, or as a spooky family dessert! Chocolate pudding topped with crushed Oreo "dirt" is decorated with icing pumpkins, flowers, and ghosts & ghouls! A cookie headstone makes the finishing touch. They are as exciting to eat as to make!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Yes, Halloween is a holiday in my house.
From decorating to food making to pumpkin picking and painting, the fun is endless. These spooky Halloween graveyard treats are cute and fun for kid and adult parties. And they require no baking!
But I need to be honest. I haven't gone to a Halloween party since my daughter was born. She's almost 5 now. That's a long time!
And until now I've used her as an excuse to do all those fun kid things I remember doing, like making gingerbread houses and playing dress up and painting pumpkins. She hasn't cared too much until last year.
Finally. Now she begs me do them, instead of the other way around. Yay!! That meant nights of crafting and pumpkin painting that we both enjoy.
But best of all, it means making fun food! Now that she is in school I always make sure I'm the first to sign up on the who's-bringing-what party list. These pudding cup Halloween graveyard treats are a cute spooky snack that both kids and adults get a kick out of.
My graveyard pudding cups were inspired by the classic "cup of dirt" that I loved as a kid. When we go to summer BBQ's, I make sure to bring them and everyone always gets so excited. So why not make a spooky version?
My daughter loves "helping" me make these, but she's pretty messy so she usually just makes her own, but we still have a lot of fun! If you having older kids who can handle the icing, put them to work. I bet they'll have a blast.
You'll need these ingredients to make Halloween graveyard pudding cup treats:
- 4 cups of chocolate pudding, homemade or store bought
- 10 Oreo cookies without the cream + something to crush them with
- 4 clear plastic cups, 8 ounces each
- 4 Milano cookies, or a similar shaped cooked
- Squeezable tube icing + icing tips to make different designs
This recipe makes four 8-oz pudding cups, but you can use 4 or 6-oz cups, too, so you'll have more. Especially for a kid's party, an 8-oz snack may be too much.
I recommend black, orange, green, pink or purple, and white icing. This way you can make pumpkins, bushes, flower bouquets, and ghosts.
Here are the steps to making these fun Halloween graveyard treats:
- Crush 10 Oreos to make the dirt.
- With black icing, write RIP on each cookie to make the headstones.
- Fill each clear plastic cup to the top with chocolate pudding.
- Add a layer of crushed Oreo on top.
- Use squeezable icing tubes to create your pumpkins, flowers, bushes, and ghosts.
