Description

Beach Pudding Jars are the perfect beach picnic dessert! This no bake, make ahead, kid-friendly dessert is creamy, cool and delightfully playful. Layers of blue Jell-o, homemade whipped cream, lemon pudding and cookie crumbs make a fun beach scene that you can eat!


Ingredients

  • 1 (3oz) box of Blue Jell-o
  • 2 c water
  • 6-12 gummy sharks
  • 2 c lemon pudding (try my 60 Second Lemon Pudding recipe!)
  • 2 c heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ c vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1-2 Oreo cookie sandwiches (creme removed) or 4 chocolate wafers
  • Other edible beach themed décor for the top such as molded chocolate, mini cakes, other candies etc. (optional)

Instructions

  1. Set aside 2 (20oz) glass jars or 4 (8oz) glass jars, with lids.
  2. Prepare the Jell-o with the 2 cups of water as instructed on the box.
  3. When ready, pour the prepared Jell-o equally among all of the jars.
  4. When the Jell-o is room temp, add the gummy sharks equally to the bottom of the jars. I did 3 sharks for the larger jars and 2 sharks for each of the smaller jars.
  5. Chill for at least 3 hours until the top of the Jell-o layer is set.
  6. In a large bowl, add the heavy cream and the sugar. Using a hand mixer, beat the cream at high speed until medium – stiff peaks form. It should take 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
  7. Next, crush the cookies into medium – fine crumbs, by using a food processor or a large plastic bag and crushing with a rolling pin. Set aside.
  8. Begin to assemble the jars.

FOR 4 (8OZ) JARS

  1. For each jar, add about ¼ cup whipped cream on top of the Jell-o layer. Then, an equal amount of the lemon pudding.
  2. Next, add 3 tablespoons of the cookie crumb mixture.
  3. Top with other edible, beach themed decorations if desired.
  4. Chill for 3 more hours until Jell-o is fully set.

FOR 2 (20OZ) JARS

  1. For each jar, add about ½ cup whipped cream on top of the Jell-o mixture. Then, an equal amount of the lemon pudding.
  2. Next, add a heaping ¼ cup of the cookie crumb mixture.
  3. Top with other edible, beach themed decorations if desired.
  4. Chill for 3 more hours until Jell-o is fully set.

 

  1. Close the jars with the lids and store in the fridge until ready to enjoy or transport to the beach. These jars are best when made at least 8 hours ahead and can be stored up to 2 days in advance.
