5 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened

1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided

MIX 1-1/2 cups of the wafer crumbs, sugar and butter in 13x9-inch pan. Press firmly onto bottom of pan. Refrigerate until ready to use.

BEAT cream cheese in medium bowl until well blended. Gently stir in 1/2 of the whipped topping. Spread evenly over crust.

STIR boiling water into gelatin in medium bowl 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to cold water to measure 1-1/2 cups. Add to gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Spoon slightly thickened gelatin over cream cheese layer.

REFRIGERATE 3 hours or until firm.

SPREAD remaining whipped topping over gelatin just before serving. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup wafer crumbs over whipped topping. Decorate sandwich cookies with icings to make "tombstones." Stand tombstones on top of dessert with candies to resemble a graveyard. Cut into 15 squares. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.

Have fun with your kids making this spooky Halloween treat and eating 1 slice each.

Use a food processor or blender to quickly crush cookies into crumbs.
