If you are a busy mom, snacking is pretty much life. My kids love their snacks but get bored of the same old boring options after school. So I decided to take the traditional pudding snack and create something fun! So let's see how I prepped to #ReadySetSnack.
We love Hershey's candy bars in this house and so I knew that this pudding would be a hit. I was hoping that it was much more rich, creamy and flavorful...I was absolutely right! These are so scrumptious. The chocolate flavor is just what you would expect. Basically their milk chocolate candy bar in a pudding. The s'mores flavor tasted exactly like the s'mores that we roasted all summer. The marshmallow layer had that smokey flavor and when paired with classic Hershey's chocolate it was out of this world.
When I saw these Hershey Ready to Eat Pudding Cups in the refrigerated section at my local Walmart, I snagged up both flavors in hopes of coming up with some easy and fun ways to spice up our snacks. I figured that I could add some fruit and fun and give my kids a great ready to eat snack. I came up with two great ways to incorporate this new pudding from Hershey's. I wanted to make something that was a balanced with some of my kids favorite fruit and would be quick and easy to grab and go. Check out below!
First up: Frozen S'mores Pudding Pops!
First up I wanted to make frozen pudding pops. My children absolutely LOVE anything sweet and frozen. I decided to use the Hershey's S'mores Ready to Eat flavor for these.
Ingredients (makes 4 pudding pops):
- 4 medium strawberries
- 8 medium raspberries
- 4 cups of Hershey's S'mores Ready to Eat Pudding
- Wilton Treat Pop Molds
- Wash the berries and cut them in halves (removing the leaf of the strawberries). Also using a spoon remove the top marshmallow layer of the S'mores pudding and place it in a separate cup.
- Take your treat pop mold and put a spoonful of the chocolate pudding in the bottom.
- Layer 2 raspberries or 1 strawberry on top of that.
- Put the entire layer of the marshmallow pudding on top of the fruit.
- Layer 2 raspberries or 1 strawberry on top of that. Put another layer of the chocolate on top of that fruit and place the lid on.
- Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours.
Next Up: Spooky Pudding Cups
Mornings in this house are crazy. Combine that with packing lunches, backpacks, checking homework, and the occasional school party and crazy becomes insane. I needed a quick and easy idea for my son's upcoming Halloween party so I decided to try my hand at making some cutesy decorated pudding cups. I know that I needed to practice and in addition, need something that is easy to grab the morning of the party and deliver that afternoon. Hershey's Ready to Eat Pudding Cups were a great option and will definitely be coming with us in the next month to his school party! I cannot wait to see all the kids faces when they see these.
- Hershey's Read to Eat Pudding in Chocolate or S'mores
- Orange, White, Black and Green Card stock
- Silhouette studio and machine
- Set up your Silhouette machine and open Silhouette Studio
- Go to the Silhouette store and purchase the designs you see in the first picture above. (They are on sale too!)
- Download and import them into your design interface. Once there, right click and ungroup each of the photos.
- Color each piece of the designs in the colors you intend them to be when you cut them out. This way when you cut them out you can select each color and cut them out together. Also I moved mine around so that all my greens, oranges, blacks and whites were grouped together on my design interface.
- Send them to the Silhouette and assemble with craft glue.
- Attach them to the pudding cups with either glue dots, craft glue or scotch tape.
My kids devoured these and I now know what I am bringing for the Halloween school party. What a fun hit and a great little snack.
