Halloween Pudding Cups
If you’re looking for the perfect treat that is also a thrifty and fun Halloween dessert, I have the ticket! This Candy Corn Pudding Parfait recipe was actually inspired by my daughter who loves to cook. I told her that I was thinking about making something inexpensive and cute that could be served at a kids Halloween party and she not only thought of pudding but helped me pick out the colors and make each parfait.
Knowing that she was only seven years old at the time should tell you that anyone can make this easy recipe. Plus, it’s the perfect time to let the kids assist! They’re always more willing to try eating something that they’ve helped cook and these are a lot more fun than snack pack pudding cups!
This tasty candy corn pudding is something you can make ahead of time or right before serving. I made these two days before eating them, and they were great.
Made with simple ingredients, this festive dessert is perfect for Halloween celebrations or as Halloween party treats for the little ones. Make sure to use clear cups or glasses so that you can see all of the colors of your favorite holiday!
Candy Corn Pudding Parfait Recipe
How To Make:
1 box instant butterscotch pudding 3.4 oz
1 box instant lemon pudding 3.4 oz
4 cups cold milk (check the pudding instructions for specific requirements)
1 container whipped topping, thawed
Take out your ingredients and make each box of instant pudding mix per the instructions on the box.
My instructions (this was the Jell-O brand) required two cups of milk each, so while you should be prepared for that, you will want to be sure to read the specifics on the box you purchase. Make each box of pudding in a separate bowl and allow them to set in the refrigerator (about five minutes, but check your box for specifics).
Grab your glasses and layer the lemon pudding in the bottom third of each one.
Cover your lemon layer with a layer of butterscotch pudding. This will take up the next third of your glass. Be careful not to mix the layers of pudding while adding the butterscotch.
Follow this with a dollop of whipped topping on each parfait. You can use a piping bag for the whipped topping, but you shouldn’t need to.
Voila! Delicious, thrifty, and beyond easy. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
This fun dessert is best eaten when freshly made, but you can make them ahead. Yields four large parfaits or eight smaller parfaits. Happy Halloween!
Can These Halloween Treats Be School Snacks?
Yes! Provided your school allows homemade treats, you can definitely make smaller versions of these easy Halloween pudding cups for larger groups. Using clear plastic cups with a lid, layer each pudding mixture, put your Cool Whip or whipped cream on top, and seal each cup. Make sure to bring plastic spoons for your individual cups!
Can I Add Anything Else To This Fun Halloween Treat?
Yes! This is the perfect Halloween dessert for adding little monsters or guys to the top of the pudding cup. You could easily add some gummy worms coming out of the top, a monster face or spider ring to each one, or even a few candy pumpkins. These aren’t dirt pudding cups, but you could easily add some Oreo cookies for flavor and texture if you should choose.
