- Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix; 4 cup serving size
- 18 Oreo cookies; crushed
- Cream cheese
- Softened butter
- Powdered sugar
- Green Food Coloring
- Peeps Marshmallows
Step 1: Prepare the Chocolate Pudding Mix
In a large bowl, whisk together pudding mix and cold milk for 2 minutes, set aside for it to thicken while you prepare the cookie crumbs.
Step 2: How to Crush Oreo Cookies
Add the Oreo Cookies to a plastic bag and crush them...slightly. You can use a rolling pin or a meat tenderizer to crush. Just be careful you don't crush them too much as you don't want crumbs for this recipe.
Step 3: Add the Pudding to the Cups
Spoon the thickened pudding into the bottom of 5 plastic cups. Then add the cookie pieces on top of each pudding cup.
Step 4: Prepare the Cream Cheese Frosting
Prepare the frosting or "grass" by mixing together the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla using an electric mixer. Add the powdered sugar and mix well.
Next add a few drops of green food coloring. Start out with one or two drops and then add more if you want to deepen the green color. I kept the green a little lighter to go with the pastel colors of the Peeps bunnies.
Step 5: How to Make the Grass
You don't have to get fancy with adding the frosting, "grass," you can just scoop a little on top of the pudding and cookies. Or you can use a Wilton Decorating tool and pipe the frosting on top.
Another idea is to use disposable decorating bags Those work great too! Make sure you check out my Shopping List below for the tools and items used in this recipe.
Step 6: Add the Marshmallow Bunny Peeps to the Pudding Cups
Top each pudding cup with a marshmallow bunny peep and you have a really cute dessert to serve on Easter Sunday for the kids. But more importantly, I really think the "big kids" are going to enjoy these as well!
