How to Make Halloween Pudding Cups

This Halloween Pudding Cups is a sure hit not only for the kids but for the kids at heart! The good thing is you only need 20 minutes to make it!

In a saucepan combine the cornstarch, cocoa powder, and sugar. Stir to combine. Pour ½ cup of the Silk into the mixture and stir to combine. It will be thick, but continue stirring until all the powdery mixture is combined.

Add the remaining Silk and then place over a burner on medium heat. Bring to a simmer/low boil, continually stirring.

Cook for a minute or two, until thickened.

Remove from heat and pour equal amounts into 2 regular-size cups, 4 smaller cups. Place in the refrigerator where the mixture will continue to thicken.

Twist the tops off of the four Halloween chocolate sandwich cookies and scrape off the orange filling.** Roll each of the four orange filling pieces into a ball and insert a broken pretzel piece into the top. Set aside.

Use a food processor or rolling pin to crush the chocolate cookies.

Use a butter knife to gently scrape off the edges of the graham crackers, so that they’re rounded, like a tombstone.

After about 30 minutes, top each pudding cup with chocolate cookie crumbles

Use decorator icing to write RIP on each of the graham cracker piecess. Place one in the pudding for each cup. Add two candy pumpkins to the top.

Return to the fridge to stay chilled until serving.

Why You’ll Love These Vegan Halloween Pudding Cups

This is a fairly easy recipe. And we’re on the same page about that. Right? Easy is good.

At least when it comes to recipes. 🙂

I know you have to be wondering how I made those little pumpkins. Well, I didn’t add the candy corn kind of pumpkins because those have gelatin in them and that is not very vegan. In fact, it’s not even vegetarian. So you  want to know what I did?

I bought Halloween chocolate sandwich cookies, scraped out the orange filling and rolled it into a ball and stuck a piece of a pretzel in the top. Then I crumbled up the cookie parts so it resembled dirt.

Kinda crafty of me, eh?

Then to make the tombstone I used a graham cracker. I got a butter knife out and scraped the edges to make them rounded like that.

This is what keeps me up at night, folks. How to make vegan pumpkins and tombstones!

But I really loved the way these turned out.

Here are some ideas to change up your Vegan Halloween Pudding Cups:

  • Use peanut butter cookies for the tombstone and add the peanut butter filling to the pudding as you’re cooking it
  • Add some crumbled up cookie pieces to the pudding
  • Chop some dairy-free chocolate chips and sprinkle into the pudding for some extra chocolate goodness
  • Use some smaller party cups to make smaller portion sizes

Do you love vegan Halloween recipes? Me too! My friend, Cara, at Fork and Beans is the queen of vegan treats. Here’s her recipe for Day of the Dead Pizzas. So cute! But look at these Vegan Stuffed Peppers, Jack-o-Lantern Style by Spa Bettie too!

Cups of vegan pudding are decorated for Halloween with orange filled Oreos in the background.

I love using Silk’s dairy-free products in my dishes — they add a rich, creamy flavor to my vegan recipes.

Today I’m using the Silk Regular Almondmilk, although you could also use the vanilla-flavored.  It has only 60 calories per serving and boasts 50% more calcium than the kind made from cows. Yes!

Silk Almondmilk is an excellent source of Vitamin E. It’s also free of dairy, soy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG. And if you’re wondering, Silk Amondmilk is verified by the Non-GMO Project’s product verification program. What more could you ask for?
