My Fun Halloween Treat

I wanted to put this up because I am so proud of this cute dessert that I made. My mom used to make this graveyard cake for my little brother every year for his birthday. I remembered it the other day and decided to make it for my pumpkin carving night. It turned out great and I wanted to put a few pictures up with the recipe also.

It is a way simple treat the Recipe is:

A bag of Oreo's (crush them)

2 packets of Instant Chocolate Pudding

12 oz or 3 cups of Whipped Cream

As far as the candy on top goes, I got peeps and Milano cookies but you can use whatever you want to put on the top of the actual cake.

Mix the pudding with 3 cups of milk and let sit in the fridge for 5 min. or more. After, mix the pudding, whipped cream, and a 1/3 of the crushed oreos in one bowl. After mixing, place the cake in a 9x13 pan and then spread the rest of the oreo's on top (to look like dirt). The rest is up to your imagination. Place whatever you like to make it look like a graveyard. Let it sit in the fridge for about an hour and then after eating, cover it.

Pumpkin Carving Time!

So this past week I Eric and I got together with a few of our friends to carve pumpkins. I was very excited to do this but Eric is not a big fan due to the smell and the nasty stuff that is inside of a pumpkin. So me being the pregnant (sensitive smeller) one, decided that if I wanted to do this then I would have to reach my hand into that pumpkin and touch all the weird feeling things that were inside (not to mention smell the pumpkin). Overall, it went well, Eric ended up doing a lot of it because he was better than me at carving the inside out. Here are a few pictures of that night.

The End Result.... (Guess who we carved our pumpkin after)
