Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups

Halloween is just days away, and we decided to have a little pre-Halloween fun with the kiddos before the hubs and I go on an adults-only vacation to the beach. The kids are a little picky about their desserts-I know how weird that sounds for kids, but it is true. One treat they both love is pudding cups, so I decided to get a little creative with Halloween coming up.

I was so pleased with how these turned out.  So cute, right?  And let me tell you-so easy!  I started thinking about Halloween in a different way this year.  More about the pumpkins and not-so-scary parts of the fun.  Jude is at a weird age of totally being spooked over ghosts and monsters, so it will certainly be an interesting year of trick-or-treating.  After visiting the pumpkin patch with the kids, I came home and got busy on this fun treat to surprise the kids after dinner.

What you will need to create your own Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups:

Pudding cups (we used vanilla and chocolate)
Crushed vanilla cookies
Green frosting
Pumpkin-shaped candies

Directions:

1.  Crush vanilla cookies in a resealable bag.  

2.  Top each pudding cup with crushed cookies to create a layer of "dirt."

3.  Using the green frosting, add vines on top of the "dirt."  I just did a zigzag line across the cup.

4.  Place a few pumpkin-shaped candies on top of the cookies and frosting.  

5.  The pumpkin patch is complete!  Enjoy!

This girl was so excited when she saw these after dinner.  She instantly knew what they were and dug right in!  We have been really lucky with a lovely fall here in Colorado so far, so we were able to enjoy our Pumpkin Patch pudding cups on the deck in our backyard.  Welcome fall and welcome Halloween!  We are ready!

I love finding desserts and treats for the kids that I know they will enjoy but I can also get creative with.  That being said, I need easy recipes and ideas so something like finding the perfect mix-ins for our favorite pudding cups is something I have been running to in busy seasons like this.  I have said it before: I will never be the bento mom but, I can certainly be the mom that surprises the kids with yummy pudding cup treats like these!


What fun Halloween desserts will you create?
