One 12-ounce box woven grain cereal, such as Chex

One 12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips 

1 cup creamy peanut butter 

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter 

5 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs 

2 ounces chocolate, melted

3 oblong vanilla sandwich cookies, such as Vienna Fingers 

Marshmallow ghosts, such as Peeps, and gummy worms, for decorating


Special equipment:
a piping bag fitted with a fine round tip
  1. Put the cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter together in a saucepan over low heat. Pour over the cereal and toss to coat thoroughly. Add 4 cups of the chocolate wafer cookies and toss to coat. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish, then sprinkle the remaining 1 cup cookie crumbs over the top.
  3. Add the melted chocolate to a piping bag fitted with a fine round tip.
  4. To make gravestones, pull apart the sandwich cookies and remove the frosting. On the flat side of the cookies, add a border of chocolate around the edge and "RIP" at the top of each. Decorate the graveyard with marshmallow ghosts, gummy worms and gravestones.
