Pudding Pots


This potted plant may seem normal, but it actually packs a chocolatey surprise treat.

Pudding Pots


  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 1/4 cup corn starch

  • 3 cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 8 mini oreos

  • 4-5 regular-sized oreos (cookie only, cream filling removed)

  • Fresh sprigs of mint


  1. Place the sugar, cocoa powder and corn starch in a pot and mix to combine. Gradually add the milk, stirring to combine.

  2. Set to low heat and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from the heat and pour the pudding through a mesh sieve into a bowl. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.

  3. Cover the surface with a sheet of plastic wrap and place in the fridge until chilled, about 1 hour.

  4. Place one mini oreo into the bottom of each mini terracotta pot. Note: This is to prevent any pudding from leaking through the little holes at the bottom of the pots. Place the pudding into a piping bag and fill the pots with the chocolate pudding.

  5. Pulse the regular-sized oreos in a food processor until they resemble soil. Spoon the 'soil' on top of the pudding and stick a sprig of mint into each pot!
