These fun springtime Bunny Pudding Cups are an easy recipe the kids can help you make and the whole family with love!
Springtime and Easter bring so many opportunities for cute food! These Bunny Pudding Cups are just one fun bunny food idea out of a million I’ve been seeing on social media right now. This one’s super easy and perfect for the little ones to help make!
Now that Emily’s two, I’ve been making a better effort to get her in the kitchen more. Not only does it give us a change of scenery from the play room, but I find when she helps make the food, she’s more likely to eat it! I’m always looking for easy recipes to make with her and this is my latest one!
This one is really easy because it’s just three ingredients – pudding mix, milk and cool whip! All Emily has to do is stir, which she’s pretty good at. No eggs to worry about her putting in her mouth or baking soda/powder that needs to stay in the bowl when she’s stirring.
Once the pudding is made Emily can help stir in the cool whip, scoop into cups and then top with the shredded coconut. At two, I needed to help decorate the rest of the bunny with marshmallow ears, candy eyes, a jelly bean nose and Twizzler whiskers. I’m sure in a year or so she’ll be able to do this all on her own though!
Wouldn’t these be fun to serve at an Easter egg hunt or as an activity to keep the children occupied on Easter while dinner is being finished? I think this will probably be a fun activity at our home for years to come!
- 1 small vanilla pudding mix
- 2 cups milk
- ½ small container cool whip, thawed
- Decorations: Shredded Coconut, Marshmallows, Sprinkles, Candy Eyes, Twizzlers, Jelly Beans
- Whisk together the milk and pudding mix for about 2 minutes. Before refrigerating, fold in the cool whip.
- Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Once set, spoon into four cups.
- To make the bunnies, first sprinkle the top with coconut. Then cut a large marshmallow in half on the diagonal, with kitchen shears. Dip the cut sides into pink sprinkles and place at the top of the cup for ears. Place candy eyes, a jelly bean nose below the ears and finally use cut Twizzlers for whiskers.
- To make the egg nests, color some coconut yellow** and then sprinkle on top of the pudding. Add a few candy eggs and voila! all done!
- Refrigerate until ready to eat.
**To color the shredded coconut yellow, just add some to a zip lock bag with a few drops of food coloring. Seal shut and shake until coconut is colored.
