I’d slid on some boots and wrap a scarf around my neck, sip some apple cider, and wander through the muddy dirt searching for my very own, oddball-shaped, cheerfully orange pumpkin. Going to the pumpkin patch has always been my favorite fall activity, so I brought a little of the magic to our home with these adorable Pumpkin Patch Pudding Dirt Cups! They are simple to make and taste delicious. In the spirit of the Fall season, I wanted to celebrate with a festive version of dirt cups that didn’t involve worms and this pumpkin patch is perfect for that.
What You Need
- Clear plastic cups
- Chocolate pudding
- Chocolate cream cookies
- Green sugar crystal sprinkles
- Mellowcreme pumpkins
- Paper straw
- Index card
- Permanent marker
- Hole puncher
4. Place a few mellowcreme pumpkins on the top and push them down gently into the “dirt” like they are sitting in a pumpkin patch. If you can find different sized/shaped pumpkins, that would be even better! I just went with whatever was in the Autumn Mix mellowcreme and candy corn package that I purchased.
5. Most pumpkin patches have a little bit of grass still with the pumpkins, not just dirt, so add some of the green sprinkles around the top. I did some spots with none, some with very little, and others with a decent amount so it looks more like grass would.
8. Trim around the label so that the “Pumpkins” sign is a little smaller.
9. Make a tiny mark to show the center along the folded side of the index card. Place a hole punch halfway over the fold on this spot and make a half-circle shape (when you unfold the card it will be a circle.)
10. Carefully twist the paper straw through the hole with a little bit sticking over the top. The hole created by the hole punch will be a little bit smaller than the straw (for a tight fit) so you will have to wiggle the straw through carefully to widen the hole.
11. Fold the index card down over the straw and tape it flat. Make sure that the paper from the index card is far enough out of the pudding when the straw is placed inside the cup, then stick the sign in the dirt cup at a slight angle.
