Easter Snacks | bunny parfait

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Hoppy Easter! Since I know you'll be busy this week preparing for all of your egg hunts, basket opening, and Easter lunches, I'm sharing a super simple, fun dessert you can make in no time for your celebrations. This bunny pudding parfait is both kid-friendly and festive!

Bunny Parfait (Makes 6 servings)

2 packs of chocolate instant pudding (or six ready-made pudding cups)
1 package of Oreos
1 pack of Haribo Happy Hoppers
12 snack size Kit-Kats (optional)

I wanted to make a fun treat that incorporated my favorite candy of the spring season — HARIBO happy hoppers! They are so good and, fortunately for this recipe, they create the perfect rabbit scene. This recipe is similar to the popular "dirt cups" that typically include gummy worms.

First, you should make your instant pudding by following the instructions on the package to add milk and whisk. After mixing, I set my large bowl of pudding in the refrigerator for a few minutes to chill until I was ready to prepare my parfaits. If you're using pudding cups, you can skip this step.

While your pudding is in the fridge, you can go ahead and put some Oreos into a plastic zip-top bag to finely crush them for your "dirt" topping. 

A few minutes before you plan to eat your parfaits, you can start preparing them. I used little clear plastic cups to assemble my parfaits as individual portions. First, add a thick layer of pudding into the bottom of the cup. Then you can break up two snack size Kit-Kats on top of this pudding layer for a fun surprise. 

Next, add your final layer of chocolate pudding on top of the Kit-Kats. Cover the surface of your pudding with your finely crushed Oreos and then place Happy Hoppers in the dirt to create a bunny scene. Happy Hoppers include both bunnies and carrots for your display!

And you're done! These fun treats are both quick and easy to make and very inexpensive. They're great for Easter celebrations — share this sweet dessert with some bunny special in your life!
