It's topped with cookie tombstones, but the scary costume can't disguise the fact that this Halloween dessert is dee-licious!

This jello dessert was a big hit, but I would have liked a little more jello flavor. Maybe using both 1 large box and 1 small box of jello. All in all, this dessert was very simple to assemble and delicious.
It looks really good and spooky and taste great too. Just want to let those who don't use gelatin a lot, you would have to wait about 30-45 min for gelatin to start to thinken up.
Very frustrating as I was making this the night before a luncheon at work - the cream cheese layer did not spread easily at all and made a big mess with the cookie crumbs. There was not enough of this layer to cover even half of the 9x13 pan. I had to throw it out and start over. Tripling that layer helped. You also need to double or triple the top layer to cover it enough to look like the picture. Tastes great!! So - I would make it again with the modifications.
Great recipe! My husband especially loved it. I did change several things. First, the crust doesn't need the extra sugar! The cookies are plenty sweet by themselves. Second, I tripled the cream cheese/cool whip layer. When I made it like the recipe called for, the cream cheese layer barely covered the cookie crust! It was such a thin layer you wouldn't even be able to taste it! When I tripled it, it looked like the picture. I would at the very least double that layer. And Lastly, I added some sugar (I didn't measure) into the cream cheese layer. Without it, there is no sweetness and it was not good! With those few changes, this recipe was great. I'll be sure to keep it for next halloween!
I have made this dessert at Halloween for the last couple of years. Now all my friends have already asked me to make it again this year. It's very easy to make and it's fun to decorate the top.
This was so so good, I will be making this one for years to come.
I made this receipe last year for my company Halloween party it was a hit I also altered the receipe and made it for Cinco De Mayo and the 4th of July with diffrent Jello's and fruit and difffrent decorations it is a hit no mater how you make it.
I made this recipe for an office party and everyone loved it. I as well made this recipe with pre-crushed oreo's. I also added some regular graham crumbs to the top to make it look more like dirt. I found ghost and skeleton candies which was a huge hit at home to. I made a Christmas version and again 5 stars. Lite and everyone loved it.
Really fun for Halloween and tasty too
