Halloween is just around the corner! If you’re looking for a delicious Halloween snack idea, check out these cute pumpkin yogurt cups! Yoplait asked me to create a fun Halloween snack recipe using their Greek 100 yogurts, and when I was in Walmart picking up the yogurts, I was struck with the inspiration to make these cute pumpkin cups. So I picked up everything else I needed for the recipe, and they turned out so cute! Plus they’re absolutely delicious. 🙂
These pumpkin yogurt cups are not only a delicious Halloween snack, but they’re a fun project for the kids to help with as well; they can help draw the pumpkin faces for their own cups!
DIY Pumpkin Yogurt Cups
Ingredients and supplies:
- Yoplait Greek 100 yogurts in any flavor (you can find them at Walmart)
- Cool Whip
- Oreo cookies
- food coloring
- clear plastic cups
- a black Sharpie marker
Note: For each pumpkin yogurt cup you’ll need one yogurt, 2 Oreo cookies, and about 2 tablespoons of Cool Whip.
You can use any flavor of yogurt you want. I used orange creamsicle! The Yoplait Greek 100 yogurts come in tons of delicious flavors!
Start by decorating your cups; it’s easier to draw on them while they’re still empty than after you’ve filled them with yogurt. Use your black Sharpie to draw a pumpkin face on each cup, about a half inch up from the bottom of the cup.
Next, crumble your Oreo cookies. We just crushed them with a rolling pin, but you can use a food processor (or a hammer!) if you want.
Add a bit of Oreo crumble to the bottom of each pumpkin cup (about two Oreos per cup).
Now it’s time to dye the yogurt orange! You can dye each yogurt in their individual cups, or, if you’re making a large batch of these pumpkin cups, it might be easier to empty out the yogurt into a mixing bowl and dye all of the yogurt at once. Add red and yellow food coloring until you get a nice bright orange!
Then spoon the yogurt over the top of the Oreo crumble (about one yogurt container per cup).
The last step is to dye the Cool Whip green and add it to the top. Spoon out about 2 tablespoons of Cool Whip per pumpkin snack cup into a mixing bowl, and add green food coloring until the Cool Whip turns bright green. The Cool Whip will slowly liquefy as you stir in the food coloring, but don’t worry! You can either just add it on top as-is (like I did in the photos below), or, if you’d prefer the Cool Whip to be stiffer, you can beat it with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Then you’ll be able to pipe it out of a frosting bag or a Ziploc bag and get a stiff “stem”. But I’m no good with frosting bags, so I went the simpler route and just spooned the Cool Whip on top of each pumpkin cup, and they still turned out super cute!
They’re almost too cute to eat! Almost…these little pumpkin yogurt cups are too delicious not to eat!
