Graveyard Treat


  • 2 1/4 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1 tub, 12 oz. whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 package (8 serving size) orange Jello
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • ice cubes
  • Rectangular or oval shaped sandwich cookies
  • Decorator icings
  • Candy corn and pumpkins

  • Directions

    Mix 2 cups of the cookie crumbs, 1/4 cup of the sugar and the melted margarine with fork in a 13x9 inch baking pan until crumbs are well moistened. Press firmly into bottom of pan to form crust. Refrigerate.
    Beat cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in medium bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Gently stir in 1/2 of the whipped topping. Spread evenly over crust.
    Stir boiling water into gelatin in medium bowl 2 minutes or until completely dissolved. Mix cold water and ice cubes to make 1 1/2 cups. Add to gelatin; stir until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites).
    Remove any remaining ice. Spoon gelatin over cream cheese layer.
    Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Spread remaining whipped topping over gelatin just before serving; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cookie crumbs.
    Decorate sandwich cookies with icing to make "tombstones". Stand tombstones on top of dessert with candies to resemble a graveyard. Cut into squares to serve.
