My kiddos are all grown up now, but when they were little I loved to make meals and snack time fun and exciting for them. 

Pancake faces? 

Yup, did them. 

Fruit pizza waffles? 

Oh ya, they loved those.

But what was one of their favorite snacks? One that they asked for over and over again?

That is easy! They loved it when I made these chocolate pudding cup potted plants.

I even threw them together for BBQ's and parties. I just threw the cake crumbs in a zipper top baggie, grabbed the Snack Pack pudding cups, and flower topped spoons ( I always had some on hand), and away we went. Oh, I was the "cool Mom" trust me.

Now I have a grand daughter on the way, and I couldn't be more excited. I can't wait to go through all of the firsts all over again. Walking, talking, new foods. Color me over the moon with anticipation! 

And of course I can't wait to be the Nana that makes cookies and all sorts of treats for her. Helloooo, food blogger Nana? Ya, this girl is going to eat good! But it won't all be sweets, trust me. 

*hand in the air* I solemnly swear that I will not be that kind of Grandmother. 

But you do know I will have to spoil her once in a while right? I mean, that is part of the job description!

I will have to practice my baking though. Those of you that have been around for a while know that I am baking challenged. So a lot of the time baked goodies have to be store bought *hanging head in shame* #EpicBloggerFail right? But it does give me the opportunity to peruse the grocery store isles for new goodies to try out. 

Snack Pack Pudding Bars #ad


One of the new things I have discovered are these Snack Pack Pudding bars. They have pudding baked right into the bars. They are OhhEmmmGeeee moist and chewy and I have to tell myself that I am not allowed to eat a whole box at one sitting, which I may or may not have done....once....maybe. #ICantBelieveIAteTheWholeThing

They worked out perfect for these Chocolate Pudding Cup Potted Plants too. I used to use chocolate cream cookies, but the pudding bars actually give the "dirt" a much more natural (if that is possible for chocolate dirt) appearance. I tried it with both the chocolate and the caramel, and I kind of liked the caramel because it had the little brown flecks in it.

Another great thing I discovered is that Snack Pack has made the pudding cups with "easy open" lids now. No more struggling to open that stubborn pudding cup, only to fling it across the kitchen when you finally do. Or is that just me?

So when it came down to the nitty gritty of building these "plants", I gathered all of my supplies together and got right down to work.

Artificial flowers, plastic, spoon, floral tape, and scissors...check!

I cut the flower to fit the spoon.

Then wrapped it tightly with floral tape.

Then snap it off when you reach the end. I <3 floral tape. It is so easy to work with!

Now, you can get all fancy dancy like me, if you want, and grab some small ceramic pots. Just wad up a bit of newspaper to put in the bottom.

And create a little hole in the middle to "cradle" the pudding cup.

Then top your pudding cup with some pudding bar "dirt" and snuggle it into the newspaper.

Add your flower spoon and TADA you have a chocolate pudding potted plant, and a bunch of happy kids (or you could just horde them all to yourself. I won't tell).
