Easter Bunny Dirt Pudding

Happy Wednesday, Friends! Easter will be here soon and I thought it would be fun to revisit this fun dessert...

This easy recipe has two of my favorite things: chocolate...and more chocolate! Ha, but seriously this Easter inspired dessert served in mini flowerpots is sure to please kids of all ages.  Ginger Grand loves it--everything from the tiny chocolate bunny to the "dirt" pudding name! 

Easter Bunny Dirt Pudding

I found the mini pots at a craft store and used clear plastic cups inside to hold the pudding so you are not actually eating out of the terracotta.  For the pudding ingredients all you need is the pudding of your choice and some type of chocolate cookie you can crumble for "dirt".  I just used instant pudding and Grasshoppers--Keebler's version of the Girl Scout thin mint. I made my pudding and spooned it into the plastic cups the day before. Just before serving I placed the cups into the flowerpots, crumbled the cookies on top and garnished with the bunny and a mint sprig from my garden.  For a fun variation, consider replacing the bunnies with gummy worms or as GG calls them, yummy worms.  Since I made these with him in mind, I will confess after the photos were taken the yummies made their appearance--GG was delighted!

  1. Just too cute Cecilia. I thought they were actually plants before I started reading. I have seen the gummy worms used on a "dirt cake" and that was really cute too.
    So much fun.

  2. Haha, yummy worms...too cute. Love a dessert that uses chocolate and more chocolate. Yum.

  3. What a super idea my friend. The grand kids will love this! Hugs, Jo

  4. You are right, kids love this! I've made dirt pudding before, but it's fun to add the chocolate bunny for Easter. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  5. What a cute, cute idea! I made something similar for a baby shower (posted in my blog if you'd like to see it), and I too, used plastic cups as a liner, but it was difficult to find a cup and terra cotta pot to match up! That was part of the challenge. Mine had hydrangeas as the decoration; I'm definitely pinning yours! ~Zuni

  6. I bet kids and adults love this cute and tasty treat! I might have to make something like this for Easter...my son would love it :)

    Thanks for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!

  7. This looks amazing! NOT just for kids! YUM :)

  8. such a delish idea! I know everyone here would LOVE this dirt pudding and you can use the pots after for real plants!
