I’ve told you before how I’m obsessed with candy, especially at Easter. While a handful of jelly beans puts a huge smile on my face, I’m even happier when they are mixed with other ingredients and Snack Pack pudding for some #SnackPackMixins.
Whoever said you shouldn’t play with your food is totally and completely wrong. Food should be fun! The kitchen is the best place to get creative and let your unique personality shine through. It’s also a wonderful time to get kids involved, especially with these fun, easy to make pudding cups.
Vanilla SUPER Snack Packs are the perfect vehicle for some fun family time in the kitchen. I picked them up at Walmart and had to resist buying one of every Snack Pack flavor – there are so many and they all sound so good. Because they don’t need to be refrigerated and have an easy open lid, they are also great for school lunches and parties. Oh, and it’s pretty awesome they have as much calcium as an 8 ounce glass of milk! I am not a milk drinker and am always looking for sources of calcium. Walmart even has a coupon available now!
The vanilla pudding itself is so creamy and has a really great flavor. I happily enjoyed it plain. That great vanilla flavor means that other flavors pair well with it too.
I started these fun pudding cups by stuffing a Mega Stuf Golden Oreo (or two) into the pudding. I loved how it absorbed the pudding and softened, blending in perfectly.
Then, I got creative with the toppings to create springtime scenes. I crushed some Honey Maid Teddy Grahams to create “sand” and used blue jelly beans for “water.” In another scene some of the Teddy Grahams frolicked with gummy bunnies under a yellow and orange jelly bean “sun.”
It was fun to color coordinate jelly beans to create the landscape, as well as use animal shaped gummies. The variety of candies you can use to create the scene is virtually endless. All of the fruit flavors really popped against the vanilla flavor and the cookies added a welcome crunch. Peanut butter and chocolate candies would definitely work as well. The mix in possibilities are endless!
Making these Pudding Cups would be an awesome Easter festivity for kids since they can all create their own delicious masterpiece.Print
