This weekend we hosted a baby shower for some dear friends of ours who are expecting their first baby next month. I’m not a fan of traditional baby showers, so we opted to host a co-ed party to celebrate their new adventure. Basically, it was just another casual get-together amongst our friends with an overly themed food table and bonus baby gifts for the expecting parents.
I struggled with wanting to do some Pinterest-worthy goodies and crafts, while also trying to avoid an in-your-face baby shower. I landed on a fall theme, which meant I could abuse all things s’more, which is exactly what I did.
These pudding cups were quite the hit. They’re decadent and I love that you can serve them in individual cups — reused baby food jars in this case — which is especially perfect for a baby shower.
They’re easy to whip up too. I used Jell-O cook and serve pudding for the base and then simply used marshmallow fluff and crumbled Golden Grahams cereal to mimic marshmallow and graham cracker.
Start with the grahams on bottom, then add your pudding and marshmallow fluff and finish with another light sprinkling of graham cracker.
Since these were used for a baby shower, I added a piece of ribbon around the rim and served them with a miniature clothes pin for added embellishment.
- (2) packages cook and serve chocolate pudding
- Jar of marshmallow fluff
- (1) box Golden Graham cereal
- 16-20 baby food jars
- Follow the cooking instructions on your pudding package to prepare pudding and set aside.
- Smash your Golden Graham cereal until crumbly and layer on the bottom of each baby food jar. I just put them in a sandwich bag, cover with a towel and then smash with the side of a jar
- Layer your toppings into the jar, starting first with your grahams, then pudding, then marshmallow and finish with a light sprinkling of grahams.
- Decorate the jar for a party or replace the lids and store in the fridge for an individual pudding snack.
