Easter is coming! I love making fun treats and crafts with my son to celebrate the holiday. I am always excited to see what new ideas we come up with and this Minions Pudding Cup was a serious hit. The key was creating them together and hanging out as a family. We both really got into the mayhem aspect though. Whip cream may have ended up in someone’s hair, but it was all in good fun. I don’t think the laughing ever stopped. Well, except when I said he couldn’t eat some of the treats because I had to take pictures.
Supplies to Make Minions Pudding Cups:
- Oval or oblong biscuit cookies
- Marshmallow Bunnies
- Snack Pack Pudding Cups
- Candy Eyes or White Icing
- Black writing icing (or any icing if you have a small cake decorator tip)
- Blue Writing Icing (or any icing if you have a small cake decorator tip)
- Reddi Whip
- Chocolate gems or eggs (optional)
Candy eyes would be easier to use but I wanted to capture the silly expressions that make our minion friends so endearing. To decorate the cookies, I warmed about 1/4 cup white frosting in the microwave 2-3 seconds at a time (about 8 seconds total) and stirred between each interval. I don’t have a fancy tiny decorating tip so I put the warm frosting in a sandwich bag and snipped the tip. Then came adding the goggles and faces. Lastly, my son added the trademark overalls with blue writing icing. We only made the tops since the minions would sit down in the pudding.
I really loved the idea of mixing fun ingredients into the pudding cups. It was like adding a personal touch to them. I sometimes pack these convenient packs in my son’s school lunch. I love the new Easy Open Lids for my son’s little hands and my son loves the taste. They make for a great treat that I can also feel good about as a mom.
Now it’s time to give those bad boys some Easter flair! We cut the ears off of some marshmallow bunnies and stuck them on the minions. Then I added them to the pudding cups. My son asked me if the minions were in a hot tub full of pudding. Cause, we all know that is what minions do – take pudding baths! I can totally see that happening, don’t you?
After he brought up the pudding bath idea, I decided the minions needed a pudding bubble bath so we added whip cream and some chocolate gems. These minions are totally ready for
eating Easter now.
This was such a fun Easter idea to do. If you would like more ideas to mix into your pudding cups, check out the Snack Pack Mix-Ins Website to get more creative ideas. There are so many great options and I would love to see how you use mix-ins to make your Snack Packs extra special!
