‘Rising Dead’ Zombie Pudding Cups #HalloweenTreatsWeek
These Zombie Pudding Cups look like the dead are actually rising. They’re so simple & ready in 5 minutes. You’re gonna love this easy no-bake Halloween dessert!
Welcome to Day 2 of #HalloweenTreatsWeek! I’ve teamed up with a great group of sponsors & they sent me a good bit of free goodies to make this week of recipes happened. As always, all opinions & general chit chat is all 100% me.
SPOILER ALERT – There’s an awesome giveaway at the end of this post!
I’ve got a super cute, super simple Halloween recipe for you today – Zombie Pudding Cups! It’s completely no-bake (aren’t those the best?) & it’s literally ready in 5 minutes. And, I’ve used the word ‘literally’ literally here. Seriously – only 5 minutes. Well, ok – maybe like 8 minutes depending on how fast you can crush Oreos. Time to work on those cookie crushing skills 😉
I used vanilla instant pudding & colored it a lovely shade of zombie green with my trusty Adams food coloring. Then, I took all my stress out on a sleeve of Oreos & layered them in a clear plastic party cup. A small mason jar or other clear glass would also be really cute. I layered the pudding/cookies about halfway up the cup, and then stuck in a green Peeps monster head. Hold the zombie head up against the glass (never thought I’d write that into a recipe…) & layer the rest of the pudding & cookies in, being careful not to get pudding on the front of the zombie’s face. Top with more crushed cookies.
Then, for added effect – I stuck in a couple of gummy zombie hands that I got from TreatStreet. I just love these little hands for these – they ended up being the perfect thing. You can find where to purchase their products here.
You could go an extra step & add a gravestone too.
Watch out – their are zombies rising from their graves y’all. Be careful out there. 😉
Zombie 'Rising from the Grave' Pudding Cups
- prepared vanilla pudding (I use instant & make it according to the box directions)
- green food coloring
- Peeps zombie head marshmallows
- gummy/candy zombie hands (I got mine from TreatStreet)
- crushed Oreos
- clear cups
- candy gravestones (I used a gravestone candy mold) (optional)
Mix the green food coloring with the vanilla pudding. Add enough to get a nice zombie green color.
Layer the pudding/cookies about halfway up the cup, and then stick in a green Peeps monster head. Hold the zombie head up against the glass (never thought I’d write that into a recipe…lol) & layer the rest of the pudding & cookies in, being careful not to get pudding on the front of the zombie’s face. Top with more crushed cookies.
Stick in a couple of candy/gummy zombie hands for the ‘rising from the dead’ effect. Top with a candy gravestone, if desired. I made mine with a gravestone candy mold & melted almond bark.
