halloween treatsI made this (or actually, a way less attractive version of this) Halloween parfait for several years ago. I loved them so much I asked Jonathan to help me make a prettier version for you guys. They’re a fun little treat for the school party or just an awesome opportunity to eat multiple layers of dessert at one time. Check out the video for and then scroll on down for the steps.  

how to make cute halloween desserts
Start by making both the chocolate and butterscotch puddings, in separate bowls. Mix each with milk according to package directions. 

pudding for dessert
Cover the pudding and allow to set in fridge for a few minutes. Meanwhile, get the graham cracker crust ready by mixing together crushed graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. 

recipe for graham cracker crust
Spoon the crumbs into individual jars or cups for the parfaits. You can also do this in one large trifle dish.

Spoon the butterscotch pudding on top of each and spread it out into a single layer as best you can with the back of a spoon. 

layered pudding cups
Spoon the chocolate pudding on top to create another layer.

Top off each with crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, so that it’s the “dirt” layer of our graveyards. 

Chocolate desserts

Using melted chocolate, pipe out “RIP” on Milano cookies or any other vanilla cookie that looks like a tombstone and then place in the center of each parfait.

  1. 1 (3.9 ounce) box chocolate pudding mix
  2. 1 (3.9 ounce) box butterscotch pudding mix
  3. 4 cups cold milk
  4. 1 1/2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
  5. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  6. 1 cup crushed chocolate cookie crumbs
  7. 6 to 8 vanilla sandwich cookies
  8. 4 ounces melted chocolate chips
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the chocolate pudding mix with 2 cups cold milk until evenly dissolved. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butterscotch pudding mix with 2 cups cold milk until evenly combined. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and stir until moistened. Divide the graham cracker crumbs among 6 to 8 small plastic cups or tumblers. Spoon in the butterscotch pudding, evenly among each and then add the chocolate pudding on top of that. Finish off with a layer of the crushed chocolate cookie crumbs.
