Graveyard Pumpkin Mousse


  • 12 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel style), softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 medium bananas, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • For garnish: long gummy worms, clean plastic skeletons or spiders


  1. In food processor, process cookies to form fine crumbs; set aside. In mixer bowl, beat cream to form stiff peaks; set aside.
  2. In separate mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice; mix well. Fold in whipped cream and banana until blended.
  3. Spoon 3/4 cup of pumpkin mousse into each of 8 stemmed dessert glasses or large custard cups; spread to make top even. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs over the top to make "dirt" surface. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  4. To garnish: Arrange gummy worms, skeletons and spiders on "dirt" layer, with worms appearing to be crawling over the edge of the glass or dish.

Serves 8.
