I think I have a slight obsession with making food that doesn’t look like food – especially flowers. If you look back over the past few months on the blog you will see a hand full of sweet treats turned into flowers of some kind, which is pretty cool but something that I didn’t even notice I was doing. And guess what? I have another one for you! A few weeks ago Good Cook sent me an amazing Bake-A-Bowl pan to create a unique recipe with. I wanted to make something perfect for Spring, and easy for kids so I went with these yummy sugar cookie pudding cups that look like little flower pots. They are super simple, great for kids parties and pretty much anyone can make them!
These only take about 30 minutes from start to finish. The cookie bowls store pretty well, so you can even make them a few days in advance if you are using them for a party or event and then quickly fill the cups on the day you need them. So here is what you need:
- Uncooked sugar cookie batter. I whipped up an easy batch using an egg free version, but use any you would like.
- Chocolate pudding (1 tub per bowl)
- Crushed Oreos
- Bake-A-Bowl pan or similar
First whip up your cookie batter and divide into 2 inch balls. Drop them into the bottom portion of your Bake-A-Bowl pan, pop the top on and put it in the oven for 12-15 minutes (more or less depending on your exact recipe).
Check them occasionally to make sure they don’t burn, being in between the metal causes them to bake faster than normal. Take them out and set them aside once they reach a light golden brown color like this:
While they are cooling you can make your flowers out of popsicle sticks and colored paper. These are very easy – just cut out a cute flower pattern from scrapbook paper and glue it onto one side of your popsicle stick. Easy peasy, right? I really wanted to do wooden spoons instead of sticks, but I couldn’t find them – so if you CAN find them you should definitely use them – they will not only look cute but complete the cup too!
Next grab about 8 Oreos, scrape off the filling and crush them up. Gather the rest of your supplies and get ready to fill your cups.
Drop pudding into each cup until they are full, then sprinkle a generous layer of crushed Oreos on top.
After that just stick your popsicle stick in the center, making sure to push it down a *tiny* bit into the cookie at the bottom and you are finished! Isn’t it adorable?
Don’t like chocolate pudding? Not a fan of sugar cookies? That’s okay! Some other great ideas are chocolate chip cookie, brownie or even peanut butter cookie bowls. You could also use a soft cheesecake filling, vanilla pudding, cream cheese, or any number of things for the filling. This treat really is super versatile, and thanks the the Bake-A-Bowl pan anyone can make adorable bowls in under half an hour! Want one for yourself? Use code BAKEABOWL at Goodcook.com for 25% off!
