Easter Chick Snack Pack Pudding Cups are a fun way to celebrate the special day and season! They couldn’t be easier to put together either!
Easter to me is such a happy time of year with the weather warming up, the flowers blooming and baby animals making their first appearance in the world. I don’t think there’s anything cuter than a fluffy baby chick! I remember in elementary school, we used to observe the eggs in the incubator.The excitement of watching that little beak start pecking through the shell for the first time is unmatched, especially to a six year old. Then a few lucky students would get to take the sweet little things home! My parents always opted to let others do the taking. 🙂
So I wanted to re-create one of the symbols of this fun time of year in a yummy, easy-to-make treat!My kids love to be at my side when I’m in the kitchen, and if yours are the same way, let them jump in and help create these adorable little spring chicken chocolate pudding cups!
You’ll need some Snack Pack Pudding Cups (I couldn’t pass up the Super sized cups, because more is always better, especially when it comes to pudding). 🙂 You know how I feel about chocolate, so was there really a choice in flavor? Vanilla’s great too, though.
I found mine nestled in the baking aisle at Walmart. Psssttt….find a great coupon HERE.
Start by adding yellow food coloring to coconut (I know it looks like cheese) and tossing until the desired vibrancy is reached.
Open your cups using the easy-open little flap on the edge, and remove half the pudding to a different bowl. We’ll add it back in later, so do not dispose of the precious stuff! You may have a hard time refraining from licking the spoon…ahem…but that didn’t happen to me.I love adding fun, festive mix-ins to my Snack Packs, so I threw in some colorful chocolate eggs next. But feel free to choose your favorite chocolate Easter candy to mix in. You can stir it around or simply leave it as a pretty layer like I did.
Spread your reserved pudding back on top. I like being able to see the fun surprise inside.
Now sprinkle each cup with your yellow coconut.
Grab some edible googly eyes and place them on top, along with an orange candy beak. I smashed some orange taffy candy flat and then just cut a few triangles out of it with a sharp knife.
Now, using construction paper or cardstock, cut out yellow wing flaps for the sides of the cups and fun little feet that will go underneath.
Attach the wings and feet using double stick tape or glue.
Don’t these adorable little guys just get you excited for Easter? These are perfect for gatherings and class parties! I could totally see them “flying” off the platter at your egg hunt too (pardon my pun, hehe). 🙂
Your kids would love you if you served these as an after-school snack!
