Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recipe! 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This dessert is very good, but I do have a few no no's about it. This dessert is very good, but I do have a few no no's about it. One thing is that it takes so long and it dosen't make very much. The second time I make this dessert I tried to increase the ingretiants for more desserts. But the more ingretiants I up sized the werider it tasted and the messer too. I am still looking to up size the amount of desserts are made with one mix. and I hope that I find a way to decrease the amount of time spend on the dessert and increase the amount of desserts all in the same time. Well I should emaill y'all when I find a way so you or your company can change it because it better to make a wonderful dessert but still enjoy the Halloween party at the same time From: A dessert fan and chef of mine own

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My family loved this recipe and they are BIG into sweets and desserts. My family loved this recipe and they are BIG into sweets and desserts. The second time I made it, I substituted chocolate flavored graham crackers for the cookies, used Philadelphia Free Cream Cheese, Free Cool Whip, and sugar-free Jello. It was just as good, a bit healthier, and my family had no idea! I made it for Thanksgiving too, with different decorations.

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.

I made this once years ago and want to make it again, now that my kids are grown, they still remember it, it was delicious. question, when using oreos (halloween ones of course) do I crush them creme and all or use just the chocolate cookie and remove the creme?
