Football Pudding Cups
Last year I set out to understand football.
It takes up so much time on the television schedule between sundays, mondays, and saturdays that I found myself with nothing to watch but football at times.
But there’s a problem.. I don’t understand football. There’s so many players and lines and pauses in the game. I can’t even see the ball because it’s being cuddled by some player.
So I tried. I intentionally watched one game. It didn’t last long. So next I tried to watch a game with Ryan but he couldn’t focus on what was going on because I had a question every other minute. “What was that” “Who has the ball” “Why did he run out of bounds”
But this could be the year! I could become the biggest football fan. I just need to pick a team to cheer for and make sure I have a really good line up of food.
If you’ve been reading for a while you know that I don’t just make cookies to munch on while I watch (or attempt) to watch football.. I’ll make football shaped cookies with chocolate frosting and white icing for the stitches. It’s go big or don’t go at all in the cute treat department.
This fall we’re teaming up with Silk to share a dairy free dessert that will get you in the mood for monday night football! Cute football food is exactly what I need to help me cheer on my favorite team.. aka, go whoever has the most points!!!
We easily made this homemade pudding dairy free by using Silk Dark Chocolate Almond milk. Which why haven’t I been using chocolate almond milk for everything?! It’s chocolatey, smooth, and perfect for those who want a diary free milk option.
After you make the pudding and it’s cooled down in the fridge, divide the pudding among glasses and allow it to set for 2-4 hours or overnight. To jazz up the glasses use some washable white paint to paint on the football stitches 30 minute before serving. For an extra touch we added dairy free white chocolate curls and some fun football food picks. To get the football pick to stay in the middle of the pudding, place two 2 mini marshmallows on the toothpick, then place the pick in the pudding.
Now I’m actually looking forward to the next monday night football game!
Football Pudding Cups
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- ¼ cup corn starch
- 2 ½ cups Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk
- In a medium pot, combine the sugar, cocoa powder and corn starch over medium heat.
- Slowly add in the Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk, whisking constantly to avoid any lumps. Allow the mixture to come to a boil over medium to high heat, this may take up to 10 minutes.
- Once boiling allow the mixture to continue to boil for 2-3 minutes as it thickens. Be sure to whisk constantly.
- Remove the pudding from the heat and allow it to cool on the counter or in the refrigerator until the pudding is cool enough to divide among the glasses.
- Cover each glass with plastic wrap and allow the pudding to set for 2-4 hours or overnight.
- 30 minutes before serving, remove the pudding from the fridge, wipe off any condensation and paint on the white football stitches if desired. Allow the paint to dry.
- Right before serving, top each glass with dairy free white chocolate curls and a football food pick, which you can find on Amazon.

Caleb won’t let me forget that it’s football season…and I dislike football A LOT. These little pudding cps are going to, hands down, be what gets me through the long games! These are SO cute Beth! Pinned!
Oh gosh, you’ll need lots of pudding :)
How cute are THOSE! Love your clever little marshmallow trick, too.
Thanks Dorothy! That was an impromptu decision but it worked!
How cute are these! They look delicious.
Chocolate pudding, what could be better?!
These are seriously adorable!!
Thank you Cathy!
Haha, before you know it, you could be breaking down plays by the end of the year! You’re always rocking the gameday snacks!
Oh gosh, I hope that’s me!!
These are so cute- love that the pudding is dairy free :)
It’s super easy to make dairy free too!
I’m like you not understanding the game much, not really sure whats going on during the game but my husband and son are… however, these pudding cups are stinking adorable!
I’m sure they don’t like you asking questions every other minute like I would have to.. haha
Well even if you don’t totally understand football, you sure nailed the football treats! These are so cute, and would look perfect on any football party spread! I can’t believe the pudding is dairy free – it looks so rich and creamy!
It’s the Silk almond milk, it’s amazing!!
How stinking cute are those pudding cups?!?!?! Love the flag toppers…and the marshmallow tip is genius!!!
I’ll be using those flags a lot!!
These are SO cute!! They’d be perfect for any football party or get together! Thanks!
I couldn’t agree more!
The only way I truly get into a game is if I place a bet on it! Haha. So if I bet my hubby $1 on a team (big spender, I know) then I’ll “get into it”. But I still am only in it for the food.
And holy YUM this looks amazing!
That’s a great suggestion Melissa! I’ll try betting on a team! Cue the gambling :)
I just recently, in the last few years, have tried to learn football. I am actually a huge fan (GO HAWKS!) now, after my Ryan took the time to explain it to me in between commercials and halftime, not during the actual game of course ;-) I never make desserts for game day snacks, I need to change that ASAP!
Oh gosh! Desserts for game day are a must!!
You always are so creative Beth! I love these little football cups!
Awww, thank you friend!
These are so so adorable!, Beth! I have no clue when it comes to football too but thankfully there are cute snacks like these that make game day more fun!
Preach sista! :)
I know a vegan Giants fan would would LOVE these.
Yay! Helping vegans enjoy football snacks across the country!
What a great idea, perfect for football season. My kids would love this!
Football? I don’t understand it either. I even didn’t try to watch it, honestly. I’ve seen some brief news on TV though. Brief but enough to realize football is the weirdest game ever. But even though I’m not a fan of football, I’m a huge fan of desserts:) These Pudding Cups look and sound fantastic, Beth! Could you send some of them to me, please? I promise to have a look at one of these odd games, in this case.
Hahaa, if there’s pudding then you promise to try and watch football?
Oh wow! This pudding cups look adorably delish and stunning. Sounds perfect for game day. :)
Would your family love these for game day?!
How cute are these?!?!?
Ingredients are easily found in my kitchen.I can easily make one.This is perfect dessert.Yummy!
