Some Spooky Decor!

I am getting out all of the goodies in preparation for Halloween! I think my dining room is done. I got this AWESOME Skeleton from the local drug store for such a steal!!! Maybe I will add some spiderwebs, but it looks spooky, what do you think?

Spooky Dessert! Easy!

Here is a cute seasonal spin on one of our favorite desserts! A spooky graveyard scene on top of "Mud"!
"Mud" is that yummy dessert made with crushed up oreos layered with a whipped cream and vanilla pudding mixture. It is a favorite here with kids and adults!! I just put some candy pumpkins, vanilla sandwich cookies (I decorated them with icing but I don't even think that was necessary!) and "glued" some pretzel sticks together using royal icing! The kids went wild for this sppoky graveyard treat!
Here's the "Mud" recipe I use:
1 stick of butter softened
8 oz cream cheese softened
Mix those together
Add- 1 cup powdered sugar
Set aside
2 instant french vanilla pudding
4 cups milk
Blend for 2 minutes
Add 12 oz Cool Whip
Blend Pudding mixture and cream cheese mixture.
Crush 16 oz Oreo Cookies
Layer in a bowl or pan.
Chill for at least 1 hour.
