Who doesn't love the Peanuts gang? If you are reading this, you probably grew up with the classic characters in comic strips and TV specials. They are part of our popular culture. It is cool to be able to pass something down to my kids that I grew up with. Since my kids love watching the Peanuts specials on TV each year, we created this easy-to-make Peanuts Charlie Brown Pudding Snack.
To make this snack, we started with some packaged vanilla and lemon pudding.
This Peanuts Charlie Brown Pudding Snack could not be easier to make. I will be showing you how to make two kinds of Charlie Brown pudding snacks. You will need a black Sharpie marker for both. If you decide to make the snack in the plastic cup, you will need a 4-5 inch high clear plastic cup as well.
Even if you are not an artist, you can draw a Charlie Brown face. I referred to a picture from a book for drawing mine. Trust me, I am no artist and I was able to draw this and have it be recognizable. As soon as my kids saw it they said "that's Charlie Brown!"
After you draw on the face and Charlie Brown's classic zig zag, you can fill it with pudding. I used almost one container of the Lemon Pudding for Charlie Brown's shirt. Then I scooped in the contents of two containers of Vanilla Pudding for his face. The vanilla works perfectly for Charlie Brown's face. I thought my Charlie Brown snack was quite clever until my husband mentioned that each cup contained a lot of pudding and kids might appreciate a smaller size.
So my husband's idea was to draw Charlie Brown's face on a vanilla pudding cup and his zig zag on a lemon pudding cup. Now I admit, this looks just as cute and was even easier than my idea. Score one for my husband!
I will leave it up to you to decide which you prefer.
