Sometimes adding one tiny detail to a recipe you've made a million times can make it brand new for kids. We've simply whipped up some pudding, and before pouring it into plastic cups to set, we painted spooky, festive Halloween faces with melted chocolate on the inside of the cups (really easy to do - we promise). Kids will devour it in a whole new way. Way to go, Mom.

  • Melt chocolate in microwave as directed on package. Use a clean small paint brush to paint a monster face on the inside of each of four 5-oz. clear plastic cups with the melted chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Add milk and food colouring to dry pudding mix in medium bowl. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Immediately pour into prepared cups.
  • Top with the cookie crumbs. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Store any leftover desserts in refrigerator.

Variation - Jack-O'-Lantern Cups

Prepare as directed, except paint jack-o'-lantern faces inside the cups and substitute 2 drops red food colouring and 4 drops yellow food colouring for the green food colouring. Insert a pretzel log into top of each filled pudding cup for the pumpkin stem.

    Drawing the faces on the outside of the cups with a Sharpie made these super easy to make! Did these for a kids Halloween party and all the kids loved them!

    These were so good! All my friends like them. But for me I'm not making them again

    My kids loved these and they were so easy to make. I drew the faces on the outside of the cups with permanent marker. We also make Jack-o-lantern faces and used vanilla pudding tinted with orange food coloring.
