In addition to making, Spooky Graveyard Pie, the tasty recipe below, here are some other fun ways to turn ordinary munchies into something monstrously yummy.
- Make a bone-chilling witches brew by serving your favorite punch in a black cauldron. Use Halloween-themed ice cube trays to make ice shaped like bones or skulls.
- Turn a basic cream cheese fruit dip into a devilish slime dip by mixing in some neon green food coloring.
- Use Halloween cookie cutters to cut soft sandwiches and cheese slices into spooky shapes like ghosts, bats and pumpkins. You can use them to make homemade tortilla chips, too.
Spooky Graveyard Pie
3 cups (about 32) finely ground chocolate sandwich cookies, divided
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 can (12 fluid ounces) Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk
1 3/4 cups (11.5-ounce package) Nestle Toll House Milk Chocolate Morsels
2 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons cornstarch
8 chocolate filled vanilla wafer cookies
Black and purple decorator writing gels
Assorted Nestle Halloween Candies
COMBINE 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs and butter in 9-inch pie plate. Press crumb mixture onto bottom and upsides of pie plate. Set aside remaining 1 1/2 cups crumbs for dirt topping.
WHISK together evaporated milk, egg yolks and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very hot and thickens slightly; do not boil. Remove from heat; stir in morsels until completely melted and mixture is smooth.
POUR into crust. Sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs. Press crumbs down gently. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set.
DECORATE cookie tombstones with writing gels as desired; let set. Insert tombstones around edge of pie. With spoon, mound cookie crumbs to form "fresh graves." Decorate graveyard with candy to make the pie as spooky as you want it to be!
