This potted plant may seem normal, but it actually packs a chocolatey surprise treat.
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
Place the sugar, cocoa powder and corn starch in a pot and mix to combine. Gradually add the milk, stirring to combine.
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.
Cover the surface with a sheet of plastic wrap and place in the fridge until chilled, about 1 hour.
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.
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!
