Mix 1-1/2 C. of the wafer crumbs, sugar and butter in 13x9-inch pan. Press firmly onto bottom of pan. Refrigerate until ready to use. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl until well blended. Gently stir in 1/2 of the whipped topping. Spread evenly over crust. Stir boiling water into gelatin in medium bowl 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to cold water to measure 1-1/2 cups. Add to gelatin, stirring until slightly thickened. Remove any un-melted ice. Spoon slightly thickened gelatin over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Spread remaining whipped topping over gelatin just before serving. Sprinkle remaining 1/4-cup wafer crumbs over whipped topping. Decorate sandwich cookies with icings to make "tombstones." Stand tombstones on top of dessert with candies to resemble a graveyard. Cut into 15 squares. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
