Graveyard Pudding Cups

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?

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…)

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 absolutely LOVE these! The hubby actually asked if I was going to make something similar for him this year (because he wants it not my kiddos). But I love how you used the cookies to make tombstones! Genius 🙂
