Blue Blob Dessert
All kinds of creatures come out at Halloween, including mysterious beings like the Blue Blob. Anything but disturbing, this concoction is a simple mix of pudding and frozen whipped topping with a few details added to give the dessert its monsterlike appearance.
2 (4-serving size) packages instant white chocolate pudding mix
2 cups cold milk
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed
Blue paste food coloring
1/2 cup miniature chocolate sandwich cookies with white filling, chopped
Blue candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
Green candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
Miniature candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
Candy-coated milk chocolate pieces
Black decorating gel
8 fruit-flavor octopus-shape candies (optional)
- In large bowl, combine pudding mixes and milk. Beat with wire whisk for 2 minutes. Fold in dessert topping. Tint pudding mixture blue. Stir in chopped cookies.
- Spoon mixture into large, heavy plastic bag. Snip a 1/2-inch piece off corner of bag. Holding top of bag tightly, squeeze mixture into mounds in 3- to 5-ounce plastic cups.
- Make face on each mound with blue and green candy-coated pieces. Outline eyes with black decorating gel to make goggles. Add an additional sandwich cookie to each for hats and, if desired, a gummy octopus to the side of each. Chill up to 4 hours.
Makes 8 servings.
