Pumpkin Pudding Cups
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 cups cold milk
1 can of 15oz. pureed pumpkin
*1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (can be adjusted to taste)
*1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
* 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup vanilla sandwich cookies
1 can or container of whipped cream topping
8-10 Ball canning jars or other decorative serving container
* Individual spices can be substituted for premixed “pumpkin spice”
1.) In a large bowl, whisk together pudding mix and milk. Let set for about 5 minutes – if you place in fridge it will set faster.
2.) Mix pureed pumpkin with spices. Then slowly stir in vanilla pudding into pumpkin until blended. (May or may not have a swirl pattern)
3.) Crush the vanilla sandwich cookies in a blender/food processor until its a crumb material.
4.) Set out your containers and add the pumpkin pudding about 3/4 way full. Then add a layer of cookie crumbles.
5.) Top with the whipped cream.
Optional: add caramel or chocolate drizzle to the top.
6.) Chill until you are ready to serve and enjoy!
