The Grave Stuff

Every time I visit Disneyland During the Halloween Season I always have to get The Grave Stuff from Red Rose Tavern! They are such a delicious treat! I knew that I wanted to create them at home for my family and they turned out perfect!

Be sure to watch my video below to follow along with me and make them!

See you soon with another magical recipe!

Prep Time 2 hrs
Servings 12 people


  • Standing Mixer or Hand Mixer
  • Rolling Pin
  • Piping bag
  • Large Star Tip
  • Parchment Paper
  • Food Processor
  • Cookie Cutter
  • tombstone mold



  • 1 package melting milk chocolates


  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbs melted Butter


  • 2 containers Cool Whip
  • 12 Oreos remove frosting
  • 1-2 drops black Food coloring


  • red velvet cake sliced into 12 bite size pieces can be store bought
  • Halloween sprinkles
  • Oreo cookie crumbles



  • Heat chocolate according to package directions. Fill molds with melted chocolate. Use an icing spatula to scrape off all excess chocolate till the backs are smooth. Place in freezer for 5 minutes to set chocoate. Then remove tombstones from the mold. Repeat untill you have 12.


  • Preheat oven to 325 F
  • In a standing mixer, or with hand mixer, cream your butter. Add your confecioners sugar and mix till well combined.
  • Add flour and cocoa powder, and melted butter and mix with a spatula till dough just starts to come together. (if too crumbly add additional tablespoon of melted butter.)
  • Remove from bowl onto a cutting board and form dough by hand.
  • Once dough is ready lighlty dust your cutting board with powder sugar and roll out dough with a rolling pin to 1/4 inch thick.
  • Using cookie cutter of your choice cut out 12 cookies.
  • Bake on a parment paper lined cookie sheet for 12 mins.
  • Let cool completely before using!


  • While the cookies are cooling begin to prepare the frosting.
  • Half your Oreo cookies and remove the frosting inside. Then crush oreos to a fine powder if your food processor.
  • In a large bowl combine Cool Whip, crushed Oreos, and black food coloring. (The food coloring is optional, but I recommend it to give the frosting a more grey color.)
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate untill ready to use.

Time to assemble the cookies

  • Once cookies are completely cooled fill a piping bag (that has the large star tip inside) with the frosting. (it will not all fit in the piping bag at once) Place a piece of bite size red velvet cake in the middle of each cookie and pipe frosting around it in a swirl untill desired height is achieved. Garnish with Halloween sprinkles, cookie crumbs, and a tombstone on the front. And enjoy!
