Gremlins in the Graveyard Halloween Treats are chocolate pudding cups decorated with a froth of whipped cream, scary cookies and Halloween candy! A great party treat or a snack before the kids head out for Beggars Night!
Fall is rushing by and Halloween will be here before we know it. One of the best ways I know to get the scary time started is by conjuring up a spooky treat that both the kids and grown-ups will love.
Pudding cups has been a staple around my house for years. Being delicious and loaded with calcium, as much as an 8 oz glass of milk, it’s a natural choice for school lunches or as an anytime snack. Pudding cups also comes in a variety of fun flavors, and are great for adding in your favorite mix-ins.
I let the kids choose things like pretzel pieces and granola, but the possibilities are endless. By adding yummy mix-ins for Halloween, like gummy worms and Gremlin faced cookies, these pudding cups become monster-ously special. Making this spooky treat is also an easy and fun activity for the kids.
How To Make Gremlins In The Graveyard Halloween Treats
1. Using a small round tip on the frosting tubes, write RIP in white on the Nutter Butter cookies. Next, use the purple frosting to attach two candy eyes to the chocolate cookies, and to draw on a scary Gremlin face. Let the kids get creative! Set aside.
2. Remove the top tab from the pudding cup and fill to the top with whipped cream to create the look of fog.
3. Add a RIP cookie headstone to the back corner of the pudding cup, push it down into the pudding to hold it in place.
4. In front of the RIP headstone, tuck a Gremlin cookie into the pudding to hold it in place.
5. Decorate with pumpkin and gummy worm Halloween candy. Serve and enjoy!
These Gremlins in the Graveyard Halloween Treats are perfect either served alone or to scary Trick or Treaters!
