Pumpkin Patch Pudding Recipe

Usually when I type up a recipe to share here, I like to answer any questions that might come up about the recipe to ensure that your experience making it is as smooth as possible.

… But I don’t know how much I can say about pumpkin patch pudding. It’s pretty foolproof as far as recipes go, and whether you make your pudding from scratch or use a package, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

My favourite aspect of this recipe is that the kids can get right in there and help!

I had Ella helping make puddings at 3 years old, and there was not one step she couldn’t help with. Yes, a from-scratch version involves some stovetop cooking, but using the right tools and providing adequate supervision (you’re going to need to be right there) will reduce any risk associated with that.

If you’re nervous about cooking on the stove with kids, instant pudding packages are a great compromise.

This recipe lasts for 3 days in the fridge without a loss in flavour or texture. Personally, I think the pumpkins should be added just before serving to preserve their texture – they will soften over time sitting in the pudding.

How to Make Pumpkin Patch Pudding

Place all pudding ingredients in a large bowl.

Whip the pudding ingredients together for 2 minutes until smooth and just starting to thicken.

Spoon the pudding into your individual serving cups. You can serve it in a big casserole-style dish but these serving cups makes serving at the event or party easier and you can also use it to encourage portion control with the kids.

Refrigerate the pudding cups until just ready to serve.

When ready to take these to your event, sprinkle the chocolate cookie crumbs overtop of the pudding and then garnish with the cute little pumpkin marshmallows.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix all of the frosting ingredients together for 2 minutes, adjusting to make the frosting stiffer with more powdered icing sugar or softer with more milk. Scoop into a piping bag fit with a small tip (or just make a small snip at the end).

Use the green frosting to add vines to the pumpkin patch and the little pumpkin candies.
