Frosty Fall Pudding Treats

Posted on

Frosty Candy Corn Dessert!
Who says you can’t do frozen treats for Halloween??  These yummy little frosty pudding cups have a Golden Oreo crust and are decorated like fun candy corn treats!

I’m back with a recipe in my Chicago Metallic Mini Cheesecake Pan.
For those of you who haven’t gotten one of these yet, they are SO much fun.  I’ve done some of my favorite desserts in this little pan.  You can do this particular dessert in cupcake liners placed in muffin tins, but they are just SO cute in the mini cheesecake pan.

Here’s how the pan works:  You get a pan that looks just like a muffin tin but each cup has a hole in the bottom.  You also get 12 little metal disks that fit perfectly in each cup, covering up that hole.  You make, bake, freeze, etc. your dessert and then just push up through that hole in the bottom and the disk pushes out with your little dessert on top.  I love fun individual desserts, so this is pretty much the perfect idea, in my opinion!

These are really easy, but they need to freeze for several hours/overnight, so make them ahead.

Frosty Fall Pudding Treat!!

Here’s the recipe: (printable version)

INGREDIENTS:

  • One package of Golden Oreos
  • 1 package (4 servings, 3.3 oz.) of Jell-O Instant White Chocolate Pudding
  • 1 1/2 cups of cold milk
  • 1 (8 oz.) container of Cool-Whip topping (thawed in refrigerator)
  • Food colorings in yellow and orange
  • Fall sprinkles

DIRECTIONS:

  • Crush about 2/3 package of Golden Oreos in a food processor or large food chopper.
  • Add orange food coloring until desired shade of orange is reached and mix on high until cookie bits and color are well combined.
  • Place metal disks into cheesecake pan and spoon cookie crumbs evenly into all 12 wells of mini- cheesecake pan (or cupcake liners), and press firmly into bottom (I use a Mini Tart Shaper– and I love it!)
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix cold milk with pudding for 2 minutes.
  • Add yellow food coloring to get desired shade and mix until well combined.
  • Fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip (the rest will be used as topping- keep it refrigerated until use)
  • Spoon pudding mixture into a large zip-top bag (and zip it tight).
  • Cut a corner of the bag off and pipe pudding mixture into each cup, all the way to  the top.
  • Use a knife to smooth the tops flat and cover entire pan with plastic wrap.
  • Freeze until serving (at least a few hours)
  • Before serving, remove pan from freezer and allow it to warm up a little bit before popping desserts out.
  • Press a finger up through the hole in the bottom of the pan, pushing each dessert up- grab it by the crust and take metal disk off the bottom.
  • Serve immediately, or place in a sealed container back in the freezer until ready to serve.
  • Pipe remaining Cool Whip on top of each little dessert cup and decorate as desired.
  • Enjoy!!

Frosty Fall Pudding Treats!!!My thoughts:  There are two things that make a dessert perfect in my mind.  Taste and the amount of smiles that happen when you serve them.  These are really yummy (how can you go wrong with pudding and Oreos???) and the number of smiles….?  Well, you are just going to have to make them to see that for yourself!  Enjoy!! ~R

Lady Bug Oreo Pops!!

Ladybug Oreo Pops!
What could be better than a cute ladybug cookie on a stick?  Biting in and finding an OREO!!!!!

These cookies are such a fun treat!  Perfect as favors and prizes at parties- they just make you smile.

We’ve done lots of Oreo Pops here at Easybaked.  The technique is the same for these as for our Original Oreo pops.  To see the how-to photos and technique, click here.

Here’s what you will need for about 24 Oreo Pops.

INGREDIENTS:

  • One box of Double Stuff Oreos
  • One 12 oz. bag of Wiltons candy melts in yellow
  • One 12 oz. bag of Wiltons candy melts in red
  • One 12 oz. bag of Wiltons candy melts in dark chocolate.
  • One bag of mini M&Ms.
  • 24 lollipop sticks
  • Candy Eyes (if desired)

Oreo Pops!

DIRECTIONS:

  • Carefully twist apart all of the Oreo cookies.
  • Using one of the pop sticks, make an indentation in the white filling of each cookie.
  • Melt the red Candy Melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until completely melted and smooth.
  • Dip the end of one stick into the melted candy melts, drizzle a little in the center of the white cookie filling and then gently press it into the indentation made.
  • Place the top of the cookie back on and allow white chocolate to harden (5 minutes or so), cementing the cookie back together with a stick inside.
  • Holding the stick, lower the entire Oreo into the bowl of melted red chocolate, spooning it over the top and sides to cover it completely.
  • Allow the excess chocolate to drain off and gently place covered Oreo on a piece of parchment paper to harden.  
  • Add two brown mini M&Ms to each half of the pop (use the photos as a guide– leave room for the top to be dipped in chocolate and for a line to be drawn down the middle.)
  • Dip half of the pops in the red chocolate and then melt the yellow chocolate and repeat the process with the 2nd half of the pops.
  • When candy melts have completely hardened, melt a the dark chocolate melts.  
  • Use a spoon to gently scoop chocolate over the top tip of the cookie, making a head on your ladybug.
  • Set each pop on parchment paper and add candy eyes (if desired) before chocolate hardens.  
  • After dipping the tops of all pops, and placing eyes, spoon remaining chocolate into a small ziptop bag and clip a corner.
  • Pipe a line from the head of the ladybug across the top toward the stick.  (use photos as a guide).
  • Allow pops to harden completely.
  • Enjoy!!!

Ladybug Oreo Pops!!!
My thoughts:  I’m addicted to Oreos.  I keep making Oreos into pops because it gives me an excuse to eat the extra Oreos that break.  

True confession.  

The other reason: they make people smile.  It never fails, you hand one of these crazy fun pops to anyone and they smile.  Even if they can’t or won’t eat dessert….they smile.  These pops are like puppies.  They make people happy!  Every few months I feel an overwhelming urge to make a different variety to share with you….so I hope that you enjoy them– and that you smile 🙂  ~r
