Graveyard Pudding

Sunday, October 3, 2010

It can't get any easier than pudding mix from a box, right? With all the time you saved on the pudding you can decorate delicious Milano cookies to look like tombstones (this was my favorite part). Cookies, pudding, and chocolate graham cracker crumbs and Voila! you have your very own haunted graveyard. I garnished my grave sites with sprigs of mint because it is growing rampant in my backyard and it was easy; but you can also use an edible flower or even little plastic flowers (just be sure to take them out before you serve them to your small children).

Serves: 4
Start-to-Finish: 15 min prep + 30 min chill time
