Patriotic Pudding Cups on { lilluna.com } Yummy pudding and oreo's make this so delish!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for cool and yummy desserts during the summertime.

With that in mind and with Fourth of July coming up, I thought it would be fun to make some Patriotic Pudding Cups.

These bad boys turned out so good and were so fun to make. In fact, Lily helped me and had a blast mixing the pudding and especially adding all the food coloring. Her favorite part though is licking off the rubber spatula, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t catch her with her finger in the COOL WHIP Whipped Topping tub. LOL!!! The girl loves COOL WHIP!

MY OTHER RECIPES

I love using COOL WHIP in my everyday desserts because it adds not only a yummy taste but makes it a little more lighter and fluffier, which is always good in desserts. This dessert, for example is mostly pudding and Oreos, but by adding COOL WHIP and some fun food coloring, it turns it into a super fun and festive dessert!

This is what you will need if you would like to make it too:

SUPPLIES/INGREDIENTS:

– 3 packages White Chocolate Pudding (3.3 oz each)

– 5.5 cups milk

– Blue (Summertime) Oreos

– Clear Cups

– Food Coloring

– Cool Whip

DIRECTIONS:

{I am sure these Oreos are seasonal so if you can thing of other uses for Blue Oreos I would stock up on them now. I do the same thing with the Red Oreos that come out around Christmas time.}

1. Gather all of your supplies together.

2. Crush your Oreos and spoon a few tablespoons into the bottom of your clear cups.

3. From there you will make your pudding one at a time. Make the pudding as directed (mix box with 3 cups of milk), but be sure to add your food coloring. I like the gel food colors because they make the food a very vibrant color. Before it sets and it is mixed well, pour into your cup over your layer of crushed Oreos. You will continue on with your middle layer. Instead of mixing 2 cups of cold milk with your pudding, only mix 1.5 cups and add 2 cups of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping. I did this to make the middle layer more fluffy as well as make it a more white color than the off-white color of the White Chocolate pudding. Continue on with the red layer, and make as directed by the box. {I was able to make 8 cups using this recipe, but it all depends on the size of cup you use.}

4. Sprinkle the top with your crushes cookies and refrigerate.

{You can also make this without the Oreos. Depends on what you like. No matter what, it still looks yummy and red, white & blue!}

I want to make these for my son’s Ranger Baseball team. LOVE this idea!! Do you know how many cups one recipe makes? Thank you!!!

    Lil' Luna

    Hi Krista – sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I made about 7 cups and had leftovers for about 2 more when I made this but the cups are a decent size. Hope that helps. 🙂

Kassi @ Truly Lovely

I’ve been loving all of your patriotic posts here lately! Great for the fourth coming up!!!

Erica Smash

Wow, this is perfect for summer. Partner for a hot summer. I love Oreo and I love to eat this sweet dessert. It is really colorful. Thanks for the ingredients. I will try to make this one this weekend.

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks, Erica!! It is super yummy! Let me know if you try it out – want to know what you think! 🙂

    Lil' Luna

    Was curious if you were able to make this and what you thought? Hope you liked it! 😀

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks, Megan!! They were definitely a hit at our little shindig!! 😀

debra

These look so yummy !
I think I may try them !
Kind of reminds me of a ribbon Jello recipe that I used to make for picnics

    Lil' Luna

    It does kinda look like ribbon Jello, huh!?! You will definitely have to try these out if you like pudding. They are so yummy! 😀

Stephanie

Hi, I just made these today for the 4th, and they look great! I wasn’t sure if you noticed, but Cool Whip isn’t listed with the “supplies/ingredients.” I almost left it off my grocery list! Also, it was hard to guess how many cups it would make, so it would help if you added that too. This was a great idea. Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the suggestions, Stephanie. Don’t know how cool whip was left off… will add that as well as the servings. 🙂 Hope you guys enjoyed it. 🙂

darla

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much, Darla!

Dawn D.

I love that you included that you can prepare the recipe without Oreos. We all know the truth, though: Oreos are crucial! Fabulous looking recipe for the whole summer. Will have to try it out the next weekend we spend at home!

    Lil' Luna

    They are crucial 🙂 They are delish..hope you like them!!

Han-Son

Love these. Could even make a great surprise Valentines for those dad’s looking to make a special personalised touch at home? Thanks for sharing.

    Lil' Luna

    Yes, it could!! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!! You’re welcome!
