Peeps Bunny Pudding Cups
Simple, no bake easter dessert! Peeps bunny pudding cups with oreos, pudding, coconut, a mini carrot and peeps!
I am a sucker for peeps because they are like tiny marshmallow-y animals that make any treat instantly cuter.
Last year’s recipe for swimming peeps jello cups was a huge hit! And they are so simple to make – blue jello, cool whip, blue food coloring, and chick peeps. We followed suit and decided to do another fun peep treat this year. We’ll probably share a new recipe each easter season because peeps are such an iconic easter treat, and the possibilities seem endless!
We’re calling this recipe peeps bunny pudding cups!
- pistachio pudding (plus 2 cups milk listed on back)
- oreos, crushed into crumbs
- shredded coconut
- green food coloring
- baby carrots
- peeps bunnies
The amount of each ingredient you’ll need is dependent on how many cups you want to make.
To make about 6 pudding cups (in 5.3oz glasses)..
-1 package of oreos should be plenty
-1 package of pudding will make five to six pudding cups if using wider bowls like I did
-1/2 cup of shredded coconut will be plenty
-a baby carrot per cup will be needed
-a small amount of parsley
-a bunny peep per cup will be needed
I’d estimate that it’d take less than 25 minutes to prep the ingredients – to pulse the oreos in a food processor or blender, make the pudding, dye the coconut, and make toothpick holes in the baby carrots. You could do all of that in advance, even a few days in advance of when you want to serve the cups.
How to assemble peeps bunny pudding dirt cups
In small cups, bowls or glasses (these are the bowls I used) add a few tablespoons of oreo crumbs, a few spoonfuls of pistachio pudding, sprinkle on green coconut, insert a small amount of parsley into the hole in your carrot, put the carrot in the pudding, and top the pudding cup with a bunny peep! You could have quite a few assembled in 10 minutes.
If you don’t think your kids will be a big fan of pistachio pudding, you could use vanilla, white chocolate or cheesecake pudding (or any pudding that is white) plus a small amount of green food coloring to turn the pudding green.
This would be a fun treat to serve during the spring season to anticipate Easter or you could keep this recipe handy after the eater bunny delivers his goodies!
I’m thinking peeps should develop a whole line of marshmallow animals – would anyone else be excited about dinosaur peeps?!
