5-Minute Frankenstein Halloween Dessert

5-Minute Frankenstein Halloween Dessert

The last parfait I made was perfectly poisonous and was unexpectedly super popular. I’m taking that to mean you all really love the simple five minute desserts that require very little in the way of crafty skill. Like being able to operate a spoon kind of crafty skill. This Halloween Frankenstein Dessert definitely fit that category, and are going to simply drive your kids crazy with excitement that you made such a thing for them.

5-Minute Frankenstein Halloween dessert ingredients:

  • Vanilla Pudding
  • Crushed up Oreos
  • Green food coloring
  • Tall shot glasses (buy them here)
  • Black vinyl or a black sharpie marker

The vanilla pudding you can make (time consuming) or buy in the premade little snack pack cups (easy and no clean-up.)
One big snack pack cup filled two shot glasses.

The shot glasses have to be dressed up a little to make these work. You can use vinyl; cut it with scissors, or use your Cricut machine and this project in Design Space to cut out the little faces.

Vinyl adverse? That’s fine, too. Break out your favorite sharpie and draw on those little faces. Sharpie will come off your glasses (as will vinyl) so this isn’t a one shot (haha) use of glassware.

Making your Halloween Frankenstein dessert

Get ready to be overwhelmed with the easiness of this all. Open your pudding if you are a properly busy mom and bought your pudding pre-made. Put in four drops of green food coloring.

Mix it up.

Put the pudding into your tall shot glasses. You can absolutely use a spoon, but I’ll pass on a styling tip here because I love you. If you put the pudding in a disposable icing bag (like these), it’s mess free to fill up the glasses. And then you toss the used bag when you’re done, because there is nothing worse than cleaning up an icing bag.


Spoon in a tablespoon or so of crushed up Oreo cookies and you’re ready to serve!

Very cute Paula! I agree about those frosting bags. When I began decorating cakes I used parchment and plastic bags. The cheapskate in me wanted to save the plastic bags by washing them. That went by the wayside quickly. The only ones I wash now are the big heavy-duty plastic and cloth-like ones. My granddaughter is having a Halloween party and she said she didn't want me to make anything. Maybe I can change her mind with these.
