We are finally getting into the fall season, and the weather around here is finally beginning to turn. The other morning I even noticed the smell of fall air when I walked outside to get into my Mommy Van. Guess what? That means that it is the perfect season for wonderful fall crafts and recipes! This week we are beginning to decorate for halloween, and today I want to share a Halloween snack craft that is a perfect way spice up your Hershey’s Ready-to-Eat Pudding Cups and make it extra spooky for halloween!
This is a really fun, but slightly messy kids’ craft that can make your snack time turn into a fun fall activity that is super delicious to eat. It’s a great way to spend quality time with your kids making a high-quality snack. To make this project, I used a few baking supplies that I had at home along with a few supplies that I needed to pick up. While shopping at my local Walmart, I picked up the Hershey’s Ready-to-Eat Pudding cups in both Chocolate and S’mores flavors, along with some Hershey’s kisses, miniature Reese’s Cups, round chocolate cookies, and candy corn. I tried to find the largest and thinnest chocolate cookies in the store, but I’m sure any cookie would work for this craft, including sugar and chocolate chip cookies. The pudding cups are in the refrigerated food section with the other dairy products.
When I got home, I also gathered Black Cookie Icing, Orange Frosting, Scissors, green construction paper, Glue Dots and a black marker. This project takes a little while for everything to “set,” so be prepared for your little kiddos to get impatient. (Or then maybe it’s just my nearly three-year-old who is the only toddler like that?)
You know all of those cookie decorating videos? The first step, that takes the longest, is basically like that– coating your cooke with black cookie icing, spreading it evenly with a toothpick and letting it “set” for approximately an hour. I was surprised at how well my almost three-year-old could do the spreading once we put the black icing on the cookie.
While you are waiting, you can get your green construction paper, scissors, Glue Dots and a magic marker and make a Witch Face for the front of your Hershey’s Pudding Cup. I used a 9 inch by 12 inch piece of paper, which I cut into 4 lengths of paper that were 3 inches by 9 inches. This means that we could make four witch faces with each piece of paper. I angled the ends of the paper, as the shape of the pudding cup makes the bottom of the cup a slightly smaller in circumference than the top of the pudding cup.
Wrap the face around the pudding cup. Get creative, make a happy witch, a scary witch, a warty witch, whatever inspires you and your kiddos! I used Glue Dots to stick the bottom down, and then put Glue Dots on top of the bottom edge to complete the face.
I then put orange frosting around the base of the hat, and added a piece of candy corn.
Put them on top of your Hershey’s Ready-to-Serve Pudding cup, and you’ve got a tasty Halloween snack that is sure to delight the kids in your family!
Both the Monkey and I enjoyed creating these treats together, but we liked eating the pudding even more– the Monkey was partial to the plain Chocolate, but I liked the S’mores Ready-to-Eat Pudding Cup.
