My kids love it when I make this! I've been using chocolate sandwich cookies with the chocolate cream inside, so the "ground" has no white bits in it, lol. I never make the Cool Whip ghosts, but I use Ghost Peeps. I also buy the bone candy that comes in little coffins to make skeletons poking out of the graveyard, and I use Milano cookies for the tombstones.

I'm sure with a little imagination, this could be changed to suit other holidays, as well. With different candies and decorations, could use the vanilla sandwich cookies and vanilla pudding, sprinkled with a little powdered sugar for a "snowy" ground and decorate for Christmas, or sprinkled with green tinted coconut for spring/summer occasions. Use your imagination!
