Halloween Pudding Cups!

I saw these on Pinterest but, unfortunately, the blog is private/invitation-only so I can’t link to it!  Booo!  (get it?  Boo!  Because it’s for Halloween!!)

But they were super easy and my daughter helped a ton!

halloween frankenstein pudding cups turtles life for me

She drew all the faces on the cups with a black Sharpie, while I made 9 batches of vanilla pudding that I tinted green.  Then we crushed some Oreos to sprinkle on top of the pudding.

30 cups later, we are all ready for her class tomorrow!  I found my cups at The Dollar Tree.  You basically just want a cup that’s fairly small so it looks full but isn’t like 18 servings worth of pudding.  I don’t remember exactly, but I think mine were 4 oz. cups.  I would have loved to find the ones with the lids, but wasn’t able to track those down.  Somebody let me know if you do find them, though!

Super, super easy!

We used vanilla pudding because they were for her class and I didn’t want to bring pistachio and worry about nut allergies.  If you’re just making these for your kids, though, and know that they would eat pistachio… then go for it and you can just skip the food dye!

  1. @Debbie in TNHi Debbie! No, no lids, although that would have been perfect! These are just small plastic cups I found at Dollar Tree. I put them on a cookie sheet and covered the whole thing with plastic wrap.

  8. Bakeing a cake with the pink or blue on the inside of the cake seems to be pretty popular right now and then ? Marks on the too and cut it to reveal to everyone I have seen some really cute cakes like that :)

  9. These are soooo cute. My daughter would get a kick out of making these in orange.

  10. How did you tint the pudding green?

    these are adorable; would they hold up for a few hours for a bake sale?

  12. Just wondering how you kept this cool until they were eaten at school? Did they hold up? So cute and my daughter will love helping me make them.

  13. I saw this post (which is adorable) on two other blogs known for stealing other people’s posts AND photos. They are using your photo of the pudding cups. Good thing you watermark your photos.

  14. Any idea what oz. the cups were?

  15. Hi,

    I’m an EFL teacher in Taiwan. I just saw your post and really love this great idea!! Actually, me and my friends really enjoy reading your blog and appreciating your creative teaching ideas. I am wondering if it is welcome that I share this Halloween green pudding on my facebook page with a photo and a direct link to your blog with other EFL teachers?? It will certainly inspire most of them!

    best,
    Kate

  16. You may try Sams Club for cups with lids, or if you a food service supplier near you that is open to the public.
