  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees & spray baking pan (9 x 13") with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, prepare cake mix according to the package directions. Pour evenly into your baking pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix ricotta cheese, all (4) eggs, sugar and cocoa until completely smooth.
  4. Carefully pour the ricotta mixture over the cake mixture in the baking pan, covering as much space as you can evenly. You can use a spoon or spatula to carefully cover any areas and sides that are difficult to cover.
  5. Bake for 53-57 minutes, cake is done when a toothpick can be inserted into the center and come out clean. Cool the cake completely, about 2 hours+ is best.

  7. When the cake is cooled (takes about 2 hours), spread the Cool Whip mixture evenly over the top.
  8. Spread the crushed cookies evenly over the top of the cake.
  9. Decorate the cake with pumpkin candies, candy eyes, sprinkles and top with graveyard and ghost cupcake toppers.
