Santa Hat Cheesecake Bites

I was asked to bring the dessert to our annual Christmas party that my friend holds at her house every year. I tried to come up with something that the kiddos and adults as well would like! I found this recipe online that used these Chocolate Desert Cups…they looked scrumptious but knew I would not find them anywhere locally and had no time to order them online. Put this recipe in the back of my mind and set out to do some grocery shopping to see what I could come up with. Well, low and behold right there in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart there the chocolate dessert cups sat…awesome! Now I can make these super cute Santa Hats!

 Here are the Chocolate Dessert Cups I used…found in the baking aisle at Wal-Mart.

So easy my 6 year old piped in the cheesecake filling in all the cups!!

St. Patrick’s Day Pudding Pies

St. Patricks Day Pudding Pies

I love to make holiday themed food and really love to make holiday themed food when it’s SUPER easy!!  It doesn’t get any easier then this and they are soooo super cute!  My 5 year old daughter actually made these from start to finish all by herself…she’s my lucky little Leprechaun helper!!

What you need:

  • Mini Graham Cracker Pie Crusts (found in the baking section at your local supermarket)
  • Instant Pudding Mix (I used vanilla or you could use pistachio pudding and not have to use food coloring)
  • Green food coloring
  • Festive sprinkles and or mini chocolate chips

That’s it…make the pudding according  to the directions on the box, put in a few drops of food coloring and stir until green!  Pour into the mini pie crusts.  Put in the refrigerator to set then top with sprinkles or mini chocolate chips!  Could also add some dollops of cool whip if desired!

How fun would these but for a St. Patrick’s themed get together you are hosting or going to?!  Adults and kids alike would love these festive little pies!
