The holidays are drawing near starting with Halloween! My kids are getting very excited for parties, dressing up, and Trick-or-treating. I must admit, I am not one of those cutesy pinterest mommies who decks the house with decorations and festive homemade goodies every holiday. For some people, that kind of thing comes naturally, but for me, it takes effort! When I try and get really crafty or ambitious it usually fails miserably, hence the reason why I try to keep things super simple around my house.
I was excited to see that TruMOO had come out with an “Orange Scream” flavored milk because that is one of my absolute favorite flavors. As a kid, I have fond memories of orange ice cream bars and creamy orange smoothies. I was raised in Arizona so we even had orange trees in our backyard! Ok, so maybe you don’t have to be a kid to still enjoy that orange cream flavor, at least, that’s what I told myself when I threw some of TruMOO’s Orange Scream in my cart. When my kids saw it in the fridge, they were jumping up and down with excitement. My son yelled, “Hey everyone! Mom bought orange milk!” (See? Simple mommies rule!) I decided to be ultra cool and make my kids a halloween snack for after school one day. I call it, “Orange Goblin Pudding Cups.”
Less than 10 ingredients! Yes! I can do this!
First, I made the pudding using instant vanilla pudding mix blended with TruMoo Orange Scream Milk.
While that was setting up in the fridge, I crushed the chocolate sandwich cookies in a gallon sized bag with a rolling pin.
Next, I made layers alternating the crushed cookies and the orange pudding.
Finally, I scooped some whipped topping into a bag, cut the corner, and then swirled it on the very top.
You can use whatever you like for the eyes. I chose Sixlets, but you could also use M&M’s or Skittles.
Hooray! Easy and simple Orange Goblin Pudding Cups!
ORANGE GOBLIN PUDDING CUPS
- 1 Large box of vanilla instant pudding mix
- 3 cups of TruMOO Orange Scream flavored milk
- 1 package chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 container of whipped topping
- candy for eyes (Sixlets, Skittles, M&M’s)
Follow directions on pudding box, substituting the TruMOO Orange Scream flavored milk in place of regular milk, While pudding is chilling in fridge, crush or blend the cookies until all the chunks are gone and it resembles ‘fine dirt.’ Layer the pudding and crushed cookies in cups and then top with the whipped topping. Carefully add candy for eyes. Enjoy!
Thanks to TruMOO for making my life just a little easier as a mom today. I’ve never been a huge milk drinker but might convert after trying this delicious Orange Scream flavor! I love that it contains NO high fructose corn syrup or artificial growth hormones. It wasn’t overly sweet, just a hint of sweetness and lots of orange goodness.
