Halloween is getting closer, and I still have so much fun to cram into these next nine days! We have gone back and forth about what we will do on Halloween but have decided that we will have a small get together at our house rather than Trick-Or-Treating. We plan to invite my family over, play games in the backyard, and eat lots of yummy food (I also plan on putting out packaged bags of Halloween Candy for trick-or-treater in case we have any). Today I wanted to share a simple, silly recipe that I plan on making for Halloween “party”, Happy Haunt Pudding Cups.
There are two steps to making this cute pudding cup, first, you will need to make your Mickey Mouse Ghosts. You can make these ghosts in advance and have them ready to go. Once the ghosts are complete, the pudding cups take just minutes to assemble.
Mickey Mouse Ghosts
White Card Stock
Open the “happy haunt” PDF above the Mickey Mouse Ghosts and print out this PDF on white card stock. Carefully cut out each ghost. On the back of each ghost, spread some glue with a clue stick, place a flat toothpick, and a small second sheet of scrap paper. Allow the ghosts to dry for an hour.
Now that you have your cute Mickey Ghosts prepared set them aside while you make you get your pudding cups together.

Food Coloring Pen
Crushed Oreos (crushed in a food processor or crush in a Ziploc bag)
Your Milano cookies will be your “tombstones.” I first planned to write on these with icing, but I found this awesome food coloring pen on Amazon and made decorating the cookies easy. You can write whatever you want on each tombstone; I just went with a simple “RIP.”
Remove the lid off of each pudding cup, and top with a scoop of crushed Oreos. Press one Milano cookie “tombstone” into the pudding cup. Add candy pumpkins and Mickey Ghosts to each pudding cup. Enjoy!
I love that you can make these pudding cups for a party, and they can sit out looking cute but won’t ruin. My husband and daughter gobbled these pudding cups up and are excited that I am remaking these cute snacks for Halloween.
Sending love and magic.
