Monster Pudding Cups
If your kids are anything like mine during the month of October, they want to make a fun and festive treat just about every weekend. Maddie continually has been asking me to decorate cookies and make other treats.
Dirt pudding cups have been a popular kids dessert for a long time and are so easy to make so I thought these cute little monster pudding cups were a fun version of the dirt cup!
These do not take long to make at all and you only need a handful of supplies to make this fun Halloween dessert!
First, you will need some small plastic cups and a Sharpie. You can try other markers if you don’t want your little one using a Sharpie, but I just supervised Maddie as I figured the Sharpie would give us the darkest black over a regular kids marker. You and the kiddos start by drawing your monster faces on the outside of the cups.
One tip for the faces – make sure you draw them closer to the bottom of the cup. If you put the faces up too high, you will have to fill the cup with a lot more pudding in order for it not to be covered by the cookie and sprinkles topping.
After you’ve got your faces, it’s time to make the pudding. I like to use vanilla pudding so we can add coloring. Those little boxes of instant pudding work fine, but don’t each make a lot of pudding on their own, so I found that 3 boxes gave me enough for 6 pudding cups.
Once your pudding is set, divide it up into bowls and add your colors. One thing I have learned with coloring instant pudding is that it does NOT sit well overnight. Not sure if I am doing anything wrong, but when I tried to dye pudding and then left overnight, I found a soupy mess the next morning so I don’t recommend mixing colors the night before. You can, however, make the faces and crush the cookies so the crumbs are ready to go.
