Bright, fun monsters are all the rage right now, not only for Halloween, but monster themed birthday parties too.
This is a fun monster treat that your kids will love to help out with.
What you will need:
- Cups – plastic drinking, clear soufflé, or glass
- Vanilla pudding
- White and dark chocolate
- Thin decorating paint brush
- Food Dye
Melt the white and dark chocolate in the microwave for about 30 seconds (add just a little more time if needed). Using the decorating brush and chocolate paint the monster faces on the inside of the cups. Lay the cups flat on a tray (so the chocolate doesn’t run) and pop into the refrigerator to harden.
While the cups are in the refrigerator, have your child divide the pudding evenly between bowls – this will depend on how many colors you want to make.
Add a few drops of food dye to each bowl and have your child mix it. You can continue adding more food dye if you want brighter colors.
Once the chocolate is set, remove the cups from the refrigerator and have your child fill each with the colored pudding. Fill almost to the top, then add sprinkles.
Alternatively leave about 1cm from the top and add whipped cream (or chocolate cream) and then top with sprinkles.
Refrigerate until you are ready to enjoy them.
The best part is these can be made ahead of time.
