OK now let’s talk about these easy RIP Halloween dessert shooters:
This is an old post that I have updated recently. Originally I used rectangular cookies that I dipped into melted chocolate. Some stores also sell cookies that are half covered in chocolate so those can be also used to make these min desserts.
Now this time I wanted to use ladyfingers for the gravestones. I figured they would go well with pudding and Oreo mix as well so why not.
Step by step – How to make RIP Halloween dessert shooters
Make crumbs (a.k.a. the black soil) out of Oreo cookies. I use a food processor – it takes seconds and you get nice fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, just place them in a zip-lock bag and smash them with a rolling pin.
Before you turn the cookies into crumbs save the white filling for later. You will add it to the pudding mixture.
Now make the pudding. You can use homemade pudding or simply buy pudding in powder. When ready, mix in the Oreo filling until smooth.
Pour into mini dessert glasses or shot glasses and transfer into the fridge (fill only ½ of each glass so you have enough space left for the Oreo “soil” and ladyfinger gravestones).
Meanwhile: Melt the chocolate with butter. Cut every single ladyfinger in half and simply spread the melted chocolate onto each lady finger with a spatula.
For the RIP inscription I used royal icing. Royal icing is very easy to make but if you want to save that extra step, buy white chocolate or royal icing from a store. Just make sure you wait until the chocolate has set before writing on it.
Assembling these Halloween dessert shooters is easy – top the pudding with some Oreo crumbs and stick a ladyfinger in. That’s it.
Keep these mini Halloween desserts in the fridge before serving.
P.S. One of my favorite Halloween party food ideas are Hot Dog Mummies! So easy to make and so popular with crowds!
RIP Halloween Dessert Shooters
For the soil:
- 12 Oreo Cookies
- 1 packet Pudding Powder of your choice (1.4 oz/43 g)
- Scrape the white filling from each Oreo cookie and place it in a bowl. Set it aside. Now put all the Oreo's in a food processor and process for a few seconds to achieve crumb like texture.
- Prepare the pudding using packet instructions. While still hot, stir in the Oreo filling. Mix well. Let it cool down a bit before pouring into small glasses. Fill only ½ of each glass – you will need space for the Oreo crumbs and gravestone which will push the pudding up. Place the glasses in the fridge.
- Meanwhile: Melt the chocolate and butter over a pot of simmering water. Cut each ladyfinger in half. Using a spatula, spread the melted chocolate over each ladyfinger. Place them onto a sheet of baking paper. Let the chocolate set.
- For homemade royal icing/frosting mix egg white with sifted powdered sugar until smooth. To do this use a fork (for best results, beat the egg white with the fork first. This will take only a few seconds. Your egg whites will look foamy). Transfer the icing into a ziplock bag and cut a tiny hole in one of the corners. When the chocolate is set, write RIP on each ladyfinger.
- Once the pudding has set a bit, top it with Oreo crumbs and stick the ladyfinger inside. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
