Halloween Pudding Cups
We’ve included instructions for two of our favorite Halloween pudding cup ideas: Frankenstein pudding cups for Halloween and pumpkin pudding cups.
With two regular boxes of pudding and the 10 OREO cookies listed in the ingredients above, you should be able to make about 4 of each type of Halloween pudding cups. Feel free to double the recipe for larger groups!
How to Make Jack-O-Lantern Pudding Cups
Pour one box of instant pudding mix into a mixing bowl. Whisk in 2 cups of milk and allow the mixture to set for a couple minutes before adding orange food coloring.
TIP: Start with a couple drops of food coloring and add more until you’ve achieved your desired shade of pumpkin orange.
Scoop your orange Halloween pudding into clear plastic cups, leaving about an inch of space at the top. Place in fridge to chill.
Meanwhile, chop about 5 OREO cookies in food processor until crumbly. Remove pudding cups from fridge and add a layer of OREO crumbs to the top of each Halloween pudding cup.
TIP: If you’re making Frankenstein pudding cups too, go ahead and chop up all of your OREO cookies at once. Use half for the pumpkin pudding cups and half for the Frankenstein pudding cups.
Use a Sharpie permanent marker to draw a jack-o-lantern face on the front of each of the cups.
How to Make Frankenstein Pudding Cups for Halloween
Prepare your second box of pudding mix just as you did for the pumpkin pudding cups, except using green food coloring instead of orange.
Chop 5 more OREO cookies (if you haven’t done so already) and add crumbs to the top of your Frankenstein pudding cups.
Use the Sharpie to draw Frankenstein’s face on the front of each of the green pudding cups.
TIP: Be sure to keep your Halloween pudding cups refrigerated until time to serve! If you’re making these in advance, we recommend waiting until as close to serving as possible before topping with the cookie crumbs, to prevent them from becoming soggy.
