We use TruMoo Chocolate Milk for this Halloween-themed dessert. It has 35% less sugar compared to competitors and contains no high fructose corn syrup. Another plus to TruMoo Milk: their farmers pledge to never use artificial growth hormones. I have become more label-conscious over the past couple of years and that’s something I always look for when buying dairy products. Thanks, TruMoo!
How to Make Monster Halloween Pudding Cups
I love creating new recipes and coming up with this fun and easy Friendly Monster Halloween Pudding Cups recipe was no exception.
Ingredients you’ll need: instant vanilla pudding, vanilla or chocolate milk (either one tastes delicious), whipped cream or Cool Whip, Halloween-colored M&Ms, and chocolate sandwich cookies
This recipe is super easy to make. Follow the directions on your pudding mix and use the amount of milk listed.
Crush some chocolate sandwich cookies into chunks. I like to put them in a gallon ziploc bag and let me kids squish them. They love it!
Add the cookies to your pudding.
And pour into small serving dishes or bowls.
Chill for a few minutes or until set.
To finish your Halloween pudding cups, add whipped cream or cool whip to the top for the monster head. (It can be a little crazy looking – it’s a kids’ monster creation afterall.)
Cut the remaining chocolate sandwich cookies in half and place two on each monster head. These are the ears. Or horns. That’s up to your kids.
Finish by adding two M&Ms for the eyes.
