Graveyard Pumpkin Mousse

12 chocolate sandwich cookies
1 cup heavy cream
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 (15-ounce) can LIBBY'S ® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 medium bananas, cut into 1/4-inch slices
Gummy worms
Plastic skeletons and spiders for decorating
  1. In a food processor, process cookies to form fine crumbs; set aside.
  2. In a mixer bowl, beat cream to form stiff peaks; set aside.
  3. In a separate mixer bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice; mix well. Fold in whipped cream and bananas until blended. Spoon 3/4 cup pumpkin mousse into each of 8 stemmed dessert glasses or large custard cups; spread to even top. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs over top. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  4. To decorate, arrange gummy worms and plastic skeletons or spiders on 'dirt' layer, placing worms so that they resemble worms crawling out of the glass.
