Pudding Cup Graveyard

Pudding Cup Graveyard

These cute Pudding Cup Graveyard desserts are a fun way to celebrate Halloween. You could make some and take them to your neighbors. You could include them as an activity in a school class Halloween party, you could serve them for dessert at a party, or you could package them nicely and send them to your old high school boy friend. Hahahahahahahaha. Whoo-ee.

That. Was a knee-slapper.

PS…some day, I will find time to write these posts during the daylight hours when I have had ample sleep, and then they won’t be as lame as they are now.


Hang in there, man.

Pudding Cup Graveyard

Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 8 servings

2 (3.9 ounce) boxes instant chocolate pudding
4 C cold milk
30 Oreos (about 2 sleeves worth)
1 tub chocolate frosting
8-10 sugar cookies (look for a package of premade cookies at the store)
gummy worms
pumpkin candies
candy corn
8 plastic cups
small Ziploc bags

1. Make your pudding according to package directions.
2. Grind the Oreo cookies into crumbs with a small food processor. Alternatively, you could place them in a large Ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling-pin. What ever suits your fancy.
3. Place some chocolate frosting into several Ziploc bags and snip a tiny hole in the tip with some scissors.

Fill the cups as desired. I thought it worked best to place a dollop of pudding in the bottom of the cup.

Then some cookie crumbs,

a worm or two,

more pudding and crumbs,

and a cookie head stone that says R.I.P

and gets placed in the center of the pudding cup. Cute, right?

My boys had other ideas.

As you can well see.

Stunning, isn’t it. The creator of this treasure could give Leonardo Davinci a run for his money.

If he were alive, that is. 🙂

    Perfect!!! I was looking for a fun Halloween treat for my Halloween Group Class with my piano students. This will go well with our musical tombstones game where my piano students play their Halloween songs and the students step on musical tombstones (ie: poor Fred fell ‘flat’ on his head; or Sandy couldn’t get off the ‘sharp’ black keys) until the music stops. Aka “musical chairs”.

    I wanted to make your recipe for pumpkin spice cupcakes, but I can’t find the pudding mix in any stores near me. Could you please tell me where you purchased yours?

    These are so cute and would be lots of fun to make with my girlies. And I don’t think your posts are lame at all–in fact, between your sense of humor and the types of recipes you post-I think you can tell a lot about a person by the way they cook–I kind of wish we lived in the same neighborhood so we could be friends–I mean the real kind rather than the cyber-kind. Thanks for sharing great ideas/recipes, as always!

    I have a stupid question do you take the icing out of the Oreos before crushing them?

      Hi Chelsea,
      This is not a stupid question at all. 🙂 The answer is, nope. Just leave it in there, it will combine with the cookies nicely for you.
      Good luck!
