      Graveyard Dessert
      2 1/4 cups Chocolate wafer cookie crumb
      1/2 cup Sugar
      1/2 cup Butter or margarine, melted
      8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
      12 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
      2 cups Water, boiling
      1 large Orange flavor gelatin
      1/2 cup cold water

      Ice cubes Rectangle-shaped cookies, for gravestones

      Decorator icings Candy corn and candy pumpkins

      To make a crust, mix 2 cups of the cookie crumbs, 1/4 cup of the sugar and the melted butter in 13″ x 9″ pan. Press firmly into bottom of the pan. Refrigerate.

      Beat the cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Stir in 1/2 of the whipped topping. Spread evenly over crust. Add boiling water to orange jello in a medium bowl; stir for 2 minutes or until completely dissolved.

      Mix cold water and ice to make 1 1/2 cups. Add to the jello, stirring until slightly thickened. Remove any remaining ice.

      Spoon slightly thickened gelatin over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate at least 3 hours until firm. Spread remaining whipped topping over jello just before serving.

      Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cookie crumbs over whipped topping to look like the ground. Decorate the sandwich cookies with colored icings to make the tombstones. Stand the tombstones on top of dessert to resemble a graveyard.

      Decorate with assorted candy corn and candy pumpkins. Cut into squares. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
      Makes 15-18 servings.
