We buy a lot of ConAgra Snack Pack pudding cups because they are convenient, delicious, and travel well in lunch bags. Personally, I am not one for plain pudding, but I love adding mix-ins so I wanted to share some fun Easter mix-in ideas with you! (PS, grab a coupon HERE!)

I set up a pudding mix-in station with goodies to make five different designs. Grab the printable instructions here. My son had fun making the bird’s nest as a special Easter activity and treat.

Each Snack Pack also contains as much calcium as an 8 oz glass of milk! I absolutely love when desserts can be nutritious too. Shh, don’t tell the kids!

The Lion and the Lamb

Snack Pack Pudding Lion and Lamb. Click the picture to view the instructions.Easter is the time we celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection. One symbol used for this is the Lion and the Lamb. Christ died as the sacrificial lamb and was risen victorious as a roaring lion. You can use these cute pudding cups as a great teaching lesson for your children or Sunday school class when sharing the meaning of Easter.

>What You Need

  • ConAgra SUPER Snack Pack vanilla pudding, opened
  • Yellow frosting
  • Mini Nilla Wafers
  • Brown/yellow/orange sprinkles
  • Black gel
  • Small candy eyes
  • Orville Redenbacher’s Tender White popcorn, crumbled into smaller pieces
  • Large marshmallow ends (carefully cut off either side to make coin-shaped marshmallows)
  • White chocolate chips

Directions

1. To make the lion, first put a ring of yellow frosting inside the pudding cup to make the mane. I used a giant clump, but you can use a tiny tip and make squiggles all around or even just use yellow and orange sprinkles.

2. Place a mini Nilla Wafer in the middle for the face.

3. Draw on a nose and mouth using the black gel then add on the candy eyes adding a drop of the gel to the backs so they stick. If you do not wish to use the candy eyes, you can use dots of the black gel.

4. Add some brown, orange, or yellow sprinkles to give the mane some texture.

5. To make the lamb, start by adding a layer of popcorn.

6. Add a marshmallow end to the center for the face and two white chocolate chips for the ears, then use the black gel to draw on the nostrils and add the candy eyes.

Bunny Butt

What an adorable and delicious way to add mix-ins to your pudding cups. Bunny butt treats are really popular right now and are a lot of fun for kids.

What You Need

  • ConAgra SUPER Snack Pack vanilla pudding, opened
  • Reddi-wip Extra Creamy topping
  • Mini marshmallows
  • White chocolate chips
  • Red or pink food coloring

Directions

1. First you will need to make the bunny feet. I made them using white chocolate, but you can even use Jordan almonds (they were just a little too expensive for me.) For each paw, place four white chocolate chips by each other on a place covered in parchment paper or microwave-safe wax paper. I did not have parchment paper so I just used a plate. I would not recommend this because a lot of them chipped when I tried to take them off the plate.

2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 40 seconds on 70% until they are melted. Once melted, take a toothpick and blend each group of four together into a foot shape.

3. While the white chocolate cools, melt a little bowl of white chocolate chips. Stir until smooth then add in one drop of red or pink dye. Use a toothpick to add the pink chocolate to the white to make the little pads on the bottom of the bunny feet. Let harden.

4. Create a mound of Reddi-wip on top of the pudding inside the cup.

5. Add a mini marshmallow to the middle to make the tail then add the bunny feet under the tail.

Bonus Tip: To make the bunny stand out a little more, try using chocolate pudding. You can even use chocolate Reddi-wip for the body and milk chocolate chips for the feet.

Spring Nature-Inspired Flower Patch and Bird’s Nest

Snack Pack Pudding Mix Ins Flowers Patch and Bird Nest. Click the picture to view instructions.I love anything spring. After all, it is my favorite time of the year! Spring and Easter are both about new life, so a beautifully blooming flower patch and bird’s nest are the perfect symbols of that and they are also the easiest to make (perfect for younger children.)

What You Need

  • ConAgra SUPER Snack Pack chocolate pudding, opened
  • Crunchy chow mein noodles
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • Small candy eggs
  • Green sugar crystal sprinkles
  • Flower sprinkles or royal icing candies

Directions

1. To make the bird’s nest, you first need to make the “twigs.” You can do this easily by melting about half cup of chocolate chips then mixing in the chow mein noodles until evenly coated. Spread onto a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and let the chocolate harden. If they turn into clumps, simply break them apart into smaller clumps.

2. Add the chocolate-coated noodles to the top of the chocolate pudding then add a few eggs in the center. That’s it!

Bonus Tip: If you wish to make this into a basket, add a piece of licorice as a handle. You can also substitute the noodles with green-dyed coconut.

3. To make the flower patch, sprinkle on some green sprinkles then top it off with some candy flowers!
