Easy to make Spring pudding cups with cookie crumbs, pudding, coconut and candies. Perfect for holiday gatherings.
I am so excited that Spring is here. The weather is getting better (kinda), my tulips and daffodils are starting to bloom and I actually got out into the yard and was able to clear out some flower beds. I was going to plant some carrots and peas and then I under estimated how much soil I needed to add to my raised garden bed so I didn’t get to that yet.
What I did do though was make Spring pudding cups. They are just like the dirt cups I grew up (but with vanilla or white chocolate pudding) and with cute bunny and egg candies instead of gummy worms. I was going to add a chocolate bunny or some peeps instead but then I remembered that I don’t even like Peeps.
I had cute chocolate bunny heads I was going to top the cups with and then my baby chose the suckers because she loves them. I added Reese’s Peanut Butter eggs because I don’t like the Cadbury ones. I probably just lost a bunch of friends for saying that, but hey, that just means more for you, so lets stay friends.
Now lets see how to build these babies.
Get you some super cute cups to fill, they can be as big or small as you want depending on how many you want to make. My cups are a little bigger so I was able to make 4 from this recipe.
Crush up some Oreos and add to the bottom of your cup.
Make your pudding according to the directions on the box but be sure to add in the green food coloring before you start mixing, it is just easier to color that way. I like using the white chocolate pudding mix, but vanilla is great as well.
In a plastic bag mix some food coloring into your coconut flakes and then sprinkle on top of the pudding. You can skip this step if you’re not a coconut fan. I had to leave the coconut out on Karmen’s because she things the texture is weird.
Finally, decorate with your chocolate eggs and bunnies and you are set for a fun Spring dessert.
Enjoy these with your friends and family and be sure to PIN this to PINTEREST for later.
