A spooky treat that will be sure to please your palette! #GhostsAndGhoblinsOhMy

Did y'all ever play that game when you were a kid (Ghosts in the graveyard)?! Omg it was soo much fun! I remember getting together with the kids in our neighborhood and playing that every time this time of year. It's funny though, I can't remember the exact details of how the game is played! Do any of you remember? Such a classic

Anyways... my mom would also always make this giant spooky cooky cake this time of year and it is just so cute, especially if you have small kids or a niece/nephew. It also tastes amazing. The frosting is made out of cream cheese and cool whip, decorated with Milano Cookies, Oreo crumbles, Halloween candy, and gel icings! It's also very easy to make (trust me, I am no gourmet chef) so you can definitely do this and have fun with it!  We brought it over to my niece and nephews house and they were delighted with it! :)

Also on the note of myself not being a gourmet chef, is anyone else addicted to those TV shows this time of year on the cooking channel (I think), called Halloween Wars?! It is so crazy cool to see what these bakers and pumpkin carvers can create with their talent!! Y'all should check it out if you haven't!

*Recipe to my "Ghosts in the Graveyard" Cookie Cake Here*

Prep Time: 20 min; Total Time 40 minutes

1 package 18 oz refrigerated slice-able sugar cookies

1 package 8 oz. Philadelphia cream cheese softened

1/3 cup sugar

2 cups cool whipped topping

3 Milano chocolate cookies

6 Oreo Chocolate cookies crushed

2 small decorating gel icings (I choose orange and black but you could also get green to create grass)

Assorted halloween candies (Pumpkins, candy corn, gummies etc.)

Preheat Oven to 350 F. Press cookie dough onto bottom of greased 12 inch cookie sheet or pizza tray (I used coconut oil to grease instead of crisco as its healthier and also I forgot to buy that!). Bake 20 mins or until golden brown. Let cool before frosting and decorating.

Beat Cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed. Gently stir in one cup of the whipped topping. Spread over cooled crust.

Decorate with remaining ingredients and remaining whipped topping to resemble a spooky graveyard. Enjoy!
