Kitchen Confessions {Summer Pudding Cups}

The end of the school year is almost here!  We are down to the wire and that means it is time for end of the year parties.  Our school assigns days/times per grade for the end of the year parties and 2nd grade is at 8:30 AM.  My idea to do an ice cream social went right out the window when her teacher told me that.  Although I'm sure the kids wouldn't mind eating ice cream that early in the day, I knew her teacher would not appreciate the kids having all of the sugar excitement on top of their end of the year excitement of the remainder of the day.

I had to start thinking about another snack they could have for the party and I decided pudding would be an easy alternative and still a fun party snack to have.

Jen's Dirt Dessert recipe came right to mind, (find the recipe HERE) and I decided make my own version.  I left out all of the extra ingredients and just want with plain pudding for the base to speed up the process and I used Golden Oreos instead of the traditional chocolate.  Since this was for a class I went ahead and made them in individual cups for each of the kids.


I also added a tiny umbrella, a Teddy Graham, and part of a Fruit-by-the-Foot as a towel, to complete the beachy summer scene on the snack.


These were so simple to put together and my kids loved helping me.  I'm sure the kids will all love them today at the party!
