It's spring in Colorado and we were hoping that our April showers would bring May flowers!  At the rate things are going, we are switching that to May showers bringing June flowers.  But at least we can make our own cute little flower power spring pudding cups to brighten up the day!



The kids and I headed off to Walmart in search of Snack Pack pudding cups and some decorations to make our own little flower pots.  Now, in theory, one would think that chocolate pudding would look more flower pot-like, but I have one kid who really prefers vanilla so vanilla flower pots it was.

But, before we could make the flower pots, we had to make the flowers.  They're very easy to do and only take a few minutes to assemble.


What You Need to Make Flower Power Cookies:
Vanilla wafer-style cookies
Candy melts
Candy coated chocolate circles or fruity flavored round candies

How to Make the Flower Power Cookies:
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment to catch spills and lay out a few rows of vanilla wafers.
Top each with one candy melt and bake for about 7-8 minutes, until the melt has softened (but still has it's round shape).


Remove from oven and press one round candy into the center of the candy melt, then press six more circle candies around to form a flower.
Let the candy melt cool and set.

We made these the night before while the oven was on for dinner, but as long as they set, you can make them the same day!  Once you have enough of them, it's time to make Flower Power Pudding Cups!

What You Need:
Snack Pack Pudding Cups
Flower power cookies
Crumbled chocolate cookies
Shredded coconut, dyed green
Gummi worms


How to Make Flower Power Pudding Cups:
Open your pudding cup and smooth out the pudding if necessary.
Top with a few spoonfuls of crumbled chocolate cookies.
Add a sprinkle of green coconut on top of that.
Place a flower power cookie in the center of the pudding cup.
Accent with a gummi worm.
Eat and enjoy!


Do you love the other little flowers?  Those are made from an awesome new product from Snack Pack!  Snack Pack pudding bars are all new to Walmart!  They come both chocolate fudge and chocolate caramel flavors.


We opened those and pressed out flowers with a simple metal flower cutter for decoration.  We noshed on the extra pieces but they would be extra yummy stirred into a pudding cup too!

What would you mix into your perfect pudding cup?
