I wonder what we could sneak into this?
For Arun's Halloween party, I made this dessert called Ghosts in the Graveyard. It is SO yummy, creamy, chocolatey and actually not too heavy. Just perfect for an afternoon kid's party. It is a Cool Whip recipe which is ironic because I use real whipped cream. I loathe Cool Whip and it takes less than 3 minutes to whip real cream anyway. Also, I do not like Oreos, so I use Honey Maid chocolate sticks. Now, the question - which veggie/fruit do you think we could sneak into this? Jessica Seinfeld of Deceptively Delicious sneaks 1 cup of avocado puree into her chocolate pudding. To be sure, sneaking Omega-3 fats into chocolate pudding does not sound half bad.
Ghosts in the Graveyard Halloween Recipe
1 pkg Honeymaid Chocolate sticks
2 pkg (4 serving sized) Chocolate INSTANT pudding
3.5 cups of cold milk
3 cups whipped cream
CRUSH cookies in zipper-style plastic bag with rolling pin or in food processor.
POUR cold milk into large bowl. Add pudding mixes. Beat 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in 3 cups of the whipped cream and 1/2 of the crushed cookies. Spoon into 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining crushed cookie for the "dirt".
REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until ready to serve. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
GRAVEYARD DECORATION: Decorate assorted cookies with decorator icings to make "tombstones." Stand "tombstones" on top of dessert with candy corn and pumpkins. Drop dollops of whipped cream to make ghosts.
