  • 1 box (4-serving size) chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 1/4 cups finely crushed chocolate wafer cookies (about 20 to 25 cookies)

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • Red and yellow gel food colour
  • White decorating icing
  • Edible Easter Grass


  • 1
    In large bowl, beat pudding mix and milk with whisk 2 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in whipped topping and 1/4 cup of the cookie crumbs.
  • 2
    Spread pudding mixture evenly in bottom of 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish. Cover with remaining cookie crumbs. Refrigerate 1 hour to set.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, butter, flour and egg until a dough forms. Add red and yellow gel food colours; stir until dough turns a bright orange colour.
  • 4
    With fingers, shape dough by rounded tablespoonfuls into small carrot shapes, about 2 inches long; place on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough. Use sharp knife to make a few shallow lines across top of each cookie.
  • 5
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheets; remove from baking sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • 6
    Place dab of white decorating icing on back of each cooled cookie. Break off pieces of edible Easter grass; attach a few pieces to icing on back of each cookie to look like green stem of carrot from front. Carefully place cookies upright in pudding mixture (you may not be able to fit all of the cookies). Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

    Serve this cookie "cake" at a child's spring birthday party for a fun and unique treat.
  • Tip 2
    You can make the entire recipe ahead of time; just don't place the cookies in the pudding until ready to serve, as they'll soften in the pudding mixture.
