 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/4  C.            chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
                         divided
      1/4  C.            sugar
    1      stick         margarine
    8      oz.           low-fat cream cheese -- very soft
    1      C.            confectioners' sugar
    1      container     Cool Whip -- (8 oz.)
    2      C.            boiling water
    1      pkg           orange jello -- 8 serving size
                          -- (or 2  4 serving
                          -- size)
      1/2  C.            cold water
                         ice cubes
 
 Decorations:  assorted rectangle-shaped (with rounded edges) sandwich
 cookies (something which has ends which are the  general shape of the top of
 a tombstone - it’s the shape that counts here), both vanilla and chocolate;
 decorator icing tubes in orange, green and brown; candy corn and pumpkins
 (approximately same size as candy corn)
 
 1. Mix 2 C. of the cookie crumbs, sugar and margarine in 13x9 pan.  Press
 firmly onto bottom of pan.  Refrigerate.
 
 2.  Mix cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and 1 C. Cool Whip.  Spread
 evenly over the first layer.  Chill.
 
 3.  Stir boiling water into gelatin bowl for 2 mins or until dissolved well.
 Mix cold water and ice to make 1-1/2 C.  Stir into gelatin until slightly
 thickened.  Remove any remaining ice.  If jello is not slightly thickened,
 refrigerate until it is.  Gently spoon over cream cheese  layer.
 
 4.  Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.  Spread remaining whipped topping
 over jello.  Sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.
 
 5.  Decorate as graveyard.  To make tombstones, using icing, decorate top
 half of sandwich cookies with items like “Boo,” “RIP,” skull and crossbones,
 pumpkins, or circles with smaller circles inside to look like scary eyes,
 add squiggly lines for frightening eyebrows.  When icing has dried, insert
 bottom halves of cookies into dessert in uneven rows of 2 and 3 cookie to
 simulate a graveyard, using about 13 cookies in all.
 
 Scatter candy corn and pumpkins around “tombstones.”
