Have you seen the Pet Ghost in a Jar DIY crafts online before? I’ve seen a few over the years online and in magazines but I decided to take that ideas a little further into the food world and created these Pet Ghost in a Jar Pudding Cups for #HalloweenTreatsWeek this year!
This ghostly ghoul is ready to hang out at Halloween parties and party on the dessert table!
What you need to make Pet Ghost in a Jar Pudding Cups:
- Chocolate Pudding (recipe below)
- Gummy Ghost
- Whipped Cream (Homemade or Spray Can)
- Halloween Sprinkles
- Pet Ghost Tag (Free Printable Below)
These gummy ghost and these fun Halloween sprinkles are from Wilton and I just love them! They gave me some great inspiration for this project!
If you want to make your own pet ghost dessert cups and want to use the same little ghost tag that I made, you can click HERE to get the file. Just right click and save it.
Then you can add it to a word document or how ever you want to size it and print it.
I found these little jars at the Dollar Tree in the Fall section and they worked perfectly for these desserts. I bet these would also be cute in little plastic shot glasses if you wanted to make a bunch for a party.
Oh and let me give you a little tip for making these ghost in a jar pudding cups.
While you can totally fill these treat cups with anything you’d like, if you are going to use something like pudding you need to make the ghost gummy sit as flat against the jar as possible. I laid the ghost on my kitchen counter and rolled over them with a rolling pin to flatten them a bit before adding them to the jar. Then when I did add them in, I kept the jar laying sideways until I filled it about half way with pudding and then sat it up to fill it the rest of the way so that the ghost would stay put.
Those ghost, I tell ya, they’re some sneaky little creatures…always trying to disappear into the pudding haha.
