How to Prepare:

Press firmly onto bottom of pan to form crust. Refrigerate.

Beat cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup sugar in med. bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Gently stir in 1/2 of the whipped topping. Spread evenly over crust.

Stir boiling water into gelatin in med. bowl 2 min. or until completely dissolved.

Refrigerate 3 hr. or until firm. Spread remaining whipped topping over gelatin just before serving; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cookie crumbs.

Decorate sandwich cookies with icings to make "tombstones." Stand tombstones on top of dessert with candies to resemble a graveyard. Cut into squares to serve.
