Ghostly Graveyard (

4 cups miniature marshmallows
¼ cup butter, cubed
6 cups crisp rice cereal
12 oval cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies

In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows and butter. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted and blended.  Remove from the heat; stir in cereal.  Press into a greased 13 in. x 9 in. dish; cool.  Cut into 12 squares and set aside. 
Cut a ½ in. piece from the bottom of each sandwich cookie.  Crush removed cookie pieces; set aside.  Write “RIP” on each cookie, using white decorating gel. 
Position cereal squares on a large serving tray.  With 2 tablespoons frosting, form a circle on each cereal square; top each with a decorated cookie.  Sprinkle reserved crumbs around tombstones; add Halloween sprinkles.
