Who didn’t love dirt cups as kid? Basically, they are chocolate pudding with crumbled brownie bites on top so they look like a dirt patch. It gives you a canvas for whatever design you want (during Halloween they are Graveyard Pudding Cups). The possibilities are endless, but these carrots are totally cute for Easter.

My kids love them and they love to help make them. I’ll walk you through the exact steps so your Easter pudding cups are just as cute as mine!

Why We Love This Easter Snack Recipe

These Carrot Patch Pudding Cups are fantastic for springtime or Easter. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, they have the cute spring theme. The pudding cups can be made ahead of time for a party or event, kids can make this recipe and they’re truly tasty! I’ll make them as part of our Easter brunch dessert table – it’s a special treat for the kids. Pair the pudding cups with an Easter Mocktail for kids.

How To Make These Easter Carrot Patch Pudding Cups Ahead Of Time

If you want to make these ahead of time, for a party, you can prep everything but not put it together until the very end. Start by making your chocolate pudding and adding the crushed brownie bites on top. Place the pudding cups in the refrigerator.

In the meantime, dip the pretzels to look like carrots. Store them in an airtight food storage container. Right before serving, add your pretzel carrots on tope of the dirt pudding! The pudding will be chilled, but the pretzels won’t be soggy.

How To Store Your Leftover Easter Snack

If you have any leftovers, I just keep them in the cups. Place some plastic wrap over the top of the pudding cups. Put the pudding cups in the refrigerator. For best freshness, enjoy your Easter pudding cups within 2-3 days of making them. Do not freeze your Easter snack pudding cups!

Recipe Substitutions

Change out the pudding flavor to whatever you like or use a sugar-free version. The chocolate pudding color makes the “dirt” look, but Jello makes different versions of the chocolate.

If you can’t find candy melts, melt white chocolate and add drops of food coloring. Start slowly and mix, until you get the desired color that you’re looking for. Add more food coloring as needed.
