Graveyard Puddings

Halloween Dessert-Making Activity With The Kids!

When planning my family's Halloween Party, I wanted to find quick and easy recipes to make for the event.  If the kids could get involved in some way, all the more fun!  

Graveyard Puddings are not only delicious, they're simple to make for busy moms and the kids can get involved putting on the finishing touches.  I did a "test run" here at home and as you can see, they're super cute and me and my daughter had fun making—and eating—them.

Consider having kids at your Halloween Party make their own graveyards with the toppings and headstone cookies!  Let us know what you think!
