Ghosts in the Graveyard

I made a recipe in Taste of Home for this, but found the picture and a similar recipe on KraftFoods. The only difference is cream cheese. I like it with cream cheese, which does make it kinda rich, but without is good too, it's light and fluffy! So, take your pick! It's pretty easy and feeds about 13 people...and it's yummy.

3 cups cold milk
2 pkg. (4-serving size each) Chocolate Instant Pudding
1 tub (12 oz.) Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
15 OREO Cookies, crushed
8 oz. cream cheese *if you want
**Assorted decorations: Either Cameo Creme Sandwich Cookies or Nutter Butters or a cookie tall and thin resembling a tombstone! Decorating gel, candy pumpkins, pieces of candy corn, and I like to put on gummy worms!

For cream cheese- In a bowl whip cream cheese until smooth. In another bowl mix up pudding and when set, add whipped topping and pudding in small amounts at a time to cream cheese until smooth, scraping sides of bowl.
Otherwise, POUR milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mixes. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Let stand 5 min. Gently stir in 3 cups of the whipped topping and half of the cookie crumbs. Spread evenly into 13x9-inch baking dish; sprinkle with the remaining cookie crumbs.
REFRIGERATE at least 1 hour. Meanwhile, decorate creme sandwich cookies with decorating gel to resemble tombstones. Set aside until ready to use.
INSERT decorated cookies into top of dessert just before serving. Add candies. Drop large spoonfuls of the remaining whipped topping onto dessert to resemble ghosts. Cover and store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
