St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Pudding Cups

St. Patrick’s Day is only a few weeks away, and it is one of my favorite holidays. That said, I am always looking for fun ways to celebrate. I have seen rainbow cakes and even rainbow cupcakes, but my boys love pudding. So, I thought I would make some rainbow pudding cups. I put them in little mini shot glasses and it makes the perfect little fun afternoon snack.


1 Box Jello instant cheesecake pudding
Red, Blue, Green and Yellow food coloring
6 bowls
Spoon or Spatula


Step 1: Prepare your pudding according to package instructions.

Step 2: Separate the pudding into 6 different bowls. You can get about 3 heaping tablespoons of pudding in each bowl with an average size box of prepared pudding. If you need more, just add another box of pudding.

Step 3: Place a different color of food coloring in each bowl. For purple, you can use blue and red and for orange, you can use red and yellow. Stir thoroughly and add more food coloring as needed to get the colors you like.

Step 4: Layer the colors of pudding in a glass or jar and serve.

I don’t know what it is, but these little rainbow pudding cups just put a smile on my face. What fun treats do you like to make for St. Patrick’s Day?
