Tex-Mex Chili for dinner and Worms In Dirt for dessert: it’s the Smith’s meal of choice on Halloween night. Usually I assemble a large bowl of chocolate pudding with cookie crumbs, whipped cream and gummi worms, but this year I’ve decided to mix things up a bit. This Halloween, our guests will get to assemble their own individual “zombies in dirt” Halloween inspired Snack Pack Pudding Cups:
One part of adulthood I do NOT appreciate is no longer getting to go trick-or-treating. (If I were a shorter person, I would totally try to sneak out in disguise.) However, browsing the bright and festive aisles at Wal-Mart felt a lot like trick-or-treating. It made shopping for all my Halloween and Snack Pack pudding needs a lot more fun. And just look at all the loot I scored!
Though the sky is the limit for #SnackPackMixIns, my favorite combo includes:
- Peanut Butter OREOS (it was hard to decided which flavor!)
- Sour Patch Kids (the BIG ones)
- Chocolate Snack Pack Pudding Cups (located in the cereal aisle)
Attention Wal-Mart shoppers: Be on the look out for a special coupon tear pad featuring a “Buy 14.3oz OREOs get $1 off Super Snack Pack Pudding” coupon.
For an extra touch of flair, I made a paper cone for each Snack Pack pudding cup. To make your own:
- Cut out several 2″x7″ strips of festive paper.
- Wrap a paper strip securely around the middle of a pudding cup.
- Secure ends with tape.
NOW…WHAT TO DO WITH THE CREAM?
I prefer to use just the cookie part of an OREO for my dirt crumbs which leaves the question: “What to do with the cream?” I could just eat it all myself, but that’s another thing I shouldn’t do as an adult. 🙂
Instead, to maximize the most of my OREOS, I carefully removed a cream center and pressed it two-thirds of the way into the pudding cup. Then I removed another cream center and pressed it one-third of the way into the cup to create a layered peanut butter surprise.
To give the Sour Patch Kids more of a zombie look, I carefully cut their arms away from their bodies and added expressions using a cotton swab dipped in chocolate syrup.
P.S. Peanut butter cream centers also make great full moons!
Of course, there is always one in the bunch who prefers to keep things simple. In that case, may I suggest a Reddi-wip® ghost? 🙂
Not only do these #SnackPackMixIns give your guests the chance to be a kid again, the clean up is a cinch.
Here’s to feeling like a kid on Halloween!
