SOTD Eats: Black Forest Pudding Cups

Black Forest

Over the weekend we celebrated my Dad’s 60th birthday with a backyard full of family and friends. I have a recap and video that will go live this week but until then I wanted to share an easy dessert that we made for the party! With about 25 guests, temperatures close to 100 degrees and a backyard party we had to get creative. 

Black Forest Pudding Cups were the perfect solution and SO easy to make. We made individual portions in small mason jars and kept them cold in a kiddie pool filled with ice! They’re delicious and the small portions were great for a hot outdoor party and can be made in 7 easy steps. 

Make the graham cracker mixture (found on box) for the bottom 


Pack it into the bottom of the jars

Make the chocolate pudding


Add it on top of the graham cracker mixture

Put a teaspoon of cherry pie filling on top of the pudding


Add a dollop of cool whip


Top the jars with mini chocolate chips to finish them


**the Black Forest Pudding Cups are NOT dairy free, but I took a lactaid pill and crossed my fingers!
