Step 3

Pour Oreos into the plastic snack bag and use a utensil such as an ice cream scoop to crush the cookies into crumbs. Then sprinkle the cookie crumbs on top of the pudding to bury the candy bones in "dirt".

Step 4

Place a Milano cookie into the pudding and cookie crumbs so that the top half of the cookie is sticking out. Then use the black gel icing to complete the headstone with "R.I.P."


Step 5

Cut green sour punch straw candies into pieces about 2 inches long, then cut each piece into thinner strips. Fold each thin strip into a "v" shape and stick the folded points into the cookie crumbs to create a grass effect.
