BEARS ON THE BEACH PUDDING CUPS
The other day I was putting together a cub scout idea for the boys to pass off one of their cooking achievements and saw something similar to this on the internet and knew the boys would love making these!
We have all heard of Dirt cups..this is just a new twist on that idea. The ingredients are pictured below
Vanilla pudding (add blue food coloring to it)
Air Heads extreme striped candy
Chocolate Teddy Grahams
Life savers or mints
Follow directions for pudding on the box except add in blue food coloring. One cub scout got a little crazy with the food coloring and dropped a ton of drops into the dried pudding mix...it made it kind of runny LOL
Once the pudding is mixed put in the fridge to thicken up a bit
Spoon pudding into small clear cups to represent the ocean water and then dollop the cool whip on top and spread around smoothly to represent the waves crashing
Then I gave each boy a ziplock bag of Nilla wafers to crush (they loved that part) sprinkle the crushed cookies onto the waves to make the sandy beach, Roll out the beach towel by cutting the air head candy in half to fit into the cups
Place one "super tan" bear on the "towel: and a couple of others standing around on the beach, add a cute beach umbrella
I am a contributor now on the Lou Lou Girls!!
(my tutorial for making paper umbrellas is on the
and for the finishing touch add a "round life preserver" in the form of a lifesaver mint or I used regular red and white mints
They really got into creating their little beach scenes and really enjoyed eating them too!
