These quick and easy DIY Graveyard Pudding Cups are a perfectly ghoulish after school snack that your kids will go crazy over! (I originally shared these pudding cups over at Snap! last year.)
On weekdays, you will almost always find me working in my office up until the moment the school bus arrives with my two little guys. (I’m very fortunate that the bus stop is right at our driveway.) Pretty much everyday, the first thing out of their mouths is, “What’s for snack?”
I don’t usually prepare special after school snacks for them, most of the time we have fruit, yogurt or granola bars, etc… Occasionally, I’ll stop work early and if my son’s daily (online) behavior report has more green marks than red, I’ll make something special.
My kids love pudding (so do I of course) and what’s more special than Halloween-themed pudding?
Their little faces just lit up when I pulled these pudding cups out of the fridge. Totally worth the extra effort! (Not that there was a lot of effort- I used instant pudding after all…) I thought about creating the “graveyard” in a pie plate, but I figured these little individual cups would be easier for serving and clean-up. (Plus, I’m still trying to use up this package of 1000 drink cups we bought for a party several years ago…)
Graveyard Pudding Cups
- Box of instant chocolate pudding (any choc pudding works- homemade or instant)
- Cold milk (whatever is specified in the pudding directions
- About 15 Oreos with most of the fillings removed
- Tombstone shaped cookies

- Crush Oreos in a food processor or place in a sandwich bag and crush with a rolling pin.
- Prepare pudding according to package directions and spoon into serving dish. (Individual cup or a 9 inch pie plate.)
- Spread crushed oreos over pudding
- Use icing to write messages on the tombstone cookies and add cookies to the pudding.
- Decorate graveyard with candies or toys.
- Keep in fridge until ready to serve.
