Gross Out Pudding Recipe

Halloween is when people try to one-up each other in the Spookfest. If you love Halloween parties, you might spot a common theme in the food that is being served. The usual Halloween table is full of dishes that are designed to look like disemboweled body parts or worms, and creepy creatures, in general from the appetizer down to the desert. In this recipe, we’ll show you how to make your Halloween desserts extra special with this pudding recipe.!

Using an instant pudding mix, it will only take you a few minutes to prepare and make this delicious and spooky dessert. Plus it will be a great family bonding activity that everyone will enjoy.  Design the look of your jelly candy and gross people out. 

The sky’s the limit for the designs eyeballs, dismembered fingers, worms, you name it. There are gummy worms available in the market that are closely colored to the real deal. Add those to your mix to have the maximum gross effect. The more morbid your designs, the better. Serve this pudding alongside this chocolate and coffee-infused Black Magic cake and the ambiance of the party will surely rise as everyone gets in their Halloween mood.

Kids love imitations of gross stuff on Halloween and these creepy desserts will do the trick for parties. But this pudding recipe will also impress or scare the adults. A word of caution though, the sight of this pudding can be triggering especially to those who are not fond of anything spooky or creepy. To complete your Halloween feast, serve up this gross pudding along with a plate of our Halloween Duo Five Spice Chocolate Brownie and Orange Glazed Blondies.

Easy Halloween Desserts with Vanilla Pudding

In this recipe, we’ll be using instant vanilla pudding, which you can easily get in a supermarket or grocery near you. However, if your local store ran out of vanilla pudding, you can always make one from scratch. If you don’t know how to make one, check out our Vanilla Cornstarch Pudding Recipe

In just a few minutes you’ll be serving a sticky, sweet, and terribly goopy pudding that will be perfect for the occasion. You can buy gummy candies that are shaped like body parts (brain, fingers, and eyeballs) in the supermarket. Or you can make this recipe vegan-friendly and replace jelly candy with fruits. Check out our CAQ section down below to know about how to turn this into a vegan-friendly recipe!

In terms of taste, this vanilla pie is creamy with a nice smell from the vanilla. If you want an additional texture, you can add some gelatin and it will become an instant jello pudding. This homemade vanilla pudding recipe goes well with our Strawberry Jello Shots Recipe.

Commonly Asked Questions

Is there a vegan-friendly alternative to milk for this pudding?

 Yes, of course. For vegan-friendly milk suggestions, we suggest using soy or almond milk. Although there are vegan-friendly candies available in the market, you can mix fruits into your pudding instead as we can always shape them up for the design. Bananas, blueberries, and strawberries can be the best alternative to candies if you want your pudding to have an extra kick of sweetness.

How do I store pudding?

For this recipe, we need to put it in a container, and in the section inside the refrigerator that it will not be touched by splashes of water. While refrigerated, this pudding can last for at least 5 days. Be careful and observe if your pudding is still doing well in the refrigerator. Sometimes, mold can creep up to our food even when refrigerated.
