Pumpkin Graveyard Parfaits
It's that fun time of the year where we rush out and get dressed to get spooked, take the kids trick-or-treating, or look at the creativity of the decorated houses. But Halloween creativity is not just limited to home decoration. We can have fun with food, too. Why not add to your spooktacular party with this tasty treat?
Here we have a ghoulishly grand parfait to share with your family, friends, or even take to the office Halloween potluck!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4-8 (depending on cup size)
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree (1¾ cup)
1 (5 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ an 8 oz container cool whip
1 package oreos, crushed
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
8 Milano cookies (Or oval to oblong rounded cookie of choice)
Handful chocolate chips
For the pudding:
1) In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine evaporated milk, pumpkin puree, and pudding, and beat until mixture is smooth and well combined. This takes about about 2 minutes. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.
2) Stir in cinnamon and the cool whip. Refrigerate mixture until ready to serve.
3) Place Oreos in a large ziplock bag and seal. Use a rolling pin to crush Oreos. Pour melted butter in the bag and shake to combine. Set aside until ready to serve.
For the RIP cookies:
Line the Milano cookies up on a baking sheet or wax paper.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave then place it in a plastic bag. Cut a teensy tiny hole in the corner of the plastic bag then push the chocolate to the corner.
Use the melted chocolate to write out RIP on the top of each of the cookies. Allow to dry.
Ready to Serve:
Layer crushed Oreos in the bottom of the glasses. Spoon pudding to about ¾ of the way full then finish with another layer of crushed Oreos. Stake the Milano cookies in the pudding mixture, with the RIP on top.
**This will serve different amounts depending on how big your glasses are. This will be enough for 8 juice size glasses or 4 large drinking glasses.
Now your victims-we mean guests- are ready to enjoy ;). Happy Haunting!
