I love this recipe. I have an October birthday and my mom always used to make this as my cake for me when I was growing up. My only suggestion is to use Milano cookies as the gravestones, but that is just a personal preference (they are the best!).

It was pretty tasty. However the consistency was more like pudding than cake or pie. Next time, I plan to put a grahm cracker or oreo cookie crust on the bottom of the pan.

This was so easy and VERY tasty! I will make it again for sure. I found that using a piping bag for the cool whip ghosts worked best & I used vanilla waffers for gravestones. Thanks.

This recipe is a Halloween favorite. I use Pepperidge Farms Milano cookies instead. You could also add gummy worms for additional effect. Very good!

I am also a member of the kraft website and have made this two years in a row. It is very easy to make and my little cousins love it!

Cute, fun treat... easy to make. Eat it fast as it doesn't stay very good for long once refrigerated

This was so easy, cute and delicious. I made 2 this year for 2 different parties. For the 1st one I followed the recipes, but for the 2nd one I changed it up a little bit and used Oreo Pudding/Pie Filling. It was delicious and everyone kept saying it tasted like dirt cake. I used the Milano cookies for tombstones. Instead of the cool whip for ghosts, I made ghosts out of meringue. I also used the little candy corn pumpkins to decorate and cut little slivers of green fruit rollup to have little sprigs of grass around the tombstones. Will be posting my pics soon.
