Oreo Ghosts

I just made these for my son's preschool class tomorrow and they turned out pretty cute! Just made them up, so there's not an official recipe.
White Dipping Chocolate (or bark coating)
Melt the chocolate until smooth and creamy. Dip Oreos in chocolate until completely coated. Remove and place on wax paper to cool and harden. Before they harden completely, add a face with sprinkles. I used bat shaped sprinkles for the eyes and then regular chocolate sprinkles for teeth.

BEAT milk and pudding mixes with whisk 2 min. Stir in 1/2 each COOL WHIP and cookie crumbs.
SPOON 1 Tbsp. of the remaining crumbs into each of 15 (6-oz.) plastic cups. Cover with layers of pudding mixture and remaining crumbs.
DROP remaining COOL WHIP by spoonfuls onto desserts to resemble ghosts. Add chocolate chips for the eyes.

Frozen Jack-o-Lanterns

12 navel oranges
12 cinnamon sticks
1/2 gallon chocolate fudge ice cream
Cut off tops of oranges, about 1/2 to 1 inch from the top. Carefully hollow out the bottoms, leaving a sturdy thick shell, reserving the orange pulp for another use. Hollow out tops. Cut Jack-O-Lantern faces into each orange. Pack chocolate ice cream into shells, being careful to keep ice cream from squeezing out the holes. Cut a hole into top of orange top. Set tops back on, over ice cream, and inset cinnamon stick stem through the hole.Place in freezer for at least 3 to 4 hours, or until serving time.
Makes 12 desserts.
