Red White And Blue Desserts
When looking for 4th of July recipes, there are a million options that you may have in your back pocket. Which is why it is fun to try something new! These fun and festive Patriotic Pudding Cups are actually super easy to make, but they look really impressive when you’re done.
4th of July desserts don’t have to be difficult – and you don’t only have to make them in July! Remember that Memorial Day and Labor Day are other great holidays to whip out your red, white and blue desserts.
These layered pudding cups are vegetarian and only have four ingredients. The trick is that you are going to separate the pudding and color each section with food coloring. I prefer a gel color as opposed to the drops, but it is totally up to your preference as to what you use.
1 large package vanilla instant pudding 5.1 oz
3 cups cold milk (double check this with the pudding box!)
1 tub whipped topping
Take out a large bowl and whisk your milk and pudding together for about 2 minutes. Be sure to check the instructions on your pudding box in order to use the correct amount of milk! You are done whisking when there are no lumps left in the pudding.
Pour half of the pudding into a separate container, leaving half in the bowl you were just using for mixing. Tint one container of pudding red and the other one blue.
Take out a muffin tin and six small glass cups. Place each cup into a muffin tin on an angle.
Evenly pour your blue pudding into each cup, allowing it to almost spill out and lay on an angle. Place the muffin tin with cups in the refrigerator and allow the pudding to set there for about 20 minutes. Place the red pudding in the refrigerator at this time as well so that it can thicken.
Remove your pudding and cups from the refrigerator. Stir the red pudding and stand each cup on the table upright. Spoon your red pudding into each cup, attempting to give the red pudding a similar slant up the side of the glass as the blue side.
Top each cup with a dollop of whipped topping and add some star sprinkles on top. Serve immediately and enjoy!
If you are making these pudding cups for later, wait until the last minute to add the star sprinkles, otherwise they will get soft.
