Have a little fun this Halloween with Snack Pack pudding cups decorated with grape eyed monsters. It’s a healthy snack or dessert your child is sure to love. #SnackPackMixins #CollectiveBias
I am always looking for a fun and easy dessert to make for Halloween. This year I got my little one involved. My Mom was over for dinner and we were brainstorming different ideas. I wanted something with fruit, and what goes so well with fruit? Chocolate. Snack Pack chocolate pudding cups would be perfect. One cup has as much calcium as an glass of milk. I’d add some fruit and we would have a healthy snack or dessert. I went to Walmart to get the Snack Pack pudding cups. They had a fantastic array or flavors, but I settled on chocolate. I had found some adorable candy eyes that I just had to use. Grape Eyed Monsters were born.
I set out everything my daughter would need, and she set to work putting them together. I put the peanut butter into a little plastic bag and snipped off the corner. It made it easy to pipe a little dot of peanut butter onto the candy eyes and glue them to the grapes. We also used three different sizes of toothpicks and decided to make a Daddy monster, a Mommy monster and a little baby monster. We varied the number of grapes to give different sizes. In five minutes we had an absolutely adorable Halloween treat. Literally it took us about five minutes. That was five minutes of time well spent.
My Mom suggested toasted coconut be added. The toasted coconut looks like burnt grass or hay, plus I used it for hair on the Mommy monster. This was the missing piece. The coconut adds so much to the finished product. Plus I love toasted coconut with chocolate. My daughter couldn’t wait to bring our creation into school the next day. She had to show everyone at lunch how she put the monsters together, and how cute they looked in the pudding cup. This was a home run. Try it on your little “creatures”. I am sure they will love this healthy Halloween snack as much as my daughter did.
