Leprechaun Pie

Tis the season for green, right?

Well, this leprechaun pie is as green as it gets!  You can whip this up in no time and call yourself festive!  And the best part is that kids love it!  This delicious treat has a purpose: To find the leprechaun's gold. There is a fun printable poem that goes along with this treat, too.
With just a few simple supplies, I whipped up this cup that easily won over my own lil' leprechaun!

 

First, gather your supplies.  Nothing too fancy.  You will need:
* Instant pistachio pudding mix. (I am not a huge pistachio fan, so I chose to do Cookies N' Cream with a bit of green food coloring!)
* Milk
* Whipped cream
* Oreo and sprinkles (optional)
* Foil-wrapped chocolate coin (I could NOT track these down, so I just used a Dove chocolate.)
* Clear plastic cup
The whole goal of Leprechaun Pie is discovering the leprechaun's gold at the bottom of the cup.  To begin,I dropped this Dove chocolate in the bottom of the cup. Unfortunately, Little Man saw me do this, and he was very frustrated.  He wanted to eat that candy immediately!
Now mix up the pudding.  I did this in my liquid measuring cup.  This is easy:
Combine 2 Tablespoons instant pudding with 3 Tablespoons milk. Stir well.  It will thicken up a bit.
I transferred the pudding to the cup now.  I added some whipped cream, an Oreo, and yes, even some green sprinkles!  (Yes, this is loaded with sugar, but fortunately it is a very small dose!)
Little Man's only motivation was to find that candy.  He was a bit impatient, and didn't want to eat the pudding at first.  He was almost pouting about having to eat dessert!
"No way, Mom."
Finally, he was able to find the candy in the cup.   He literally shouted, "Hooray!" when he saw that elusive candy.  Between the two of us, we cleared the pudding so he could eat his leprechaun's gold!
Happy now.
There is a darling poem that goes along with this treat, too.  Just click the image below to download the poem.

    Just saw this today and I like how you make the recipe better. WHO likes pistachio pudding? No one, that’s who. I also laughed a little at how you replaced the gold coin because I totally would do that. Awesome mom ideas, but even more important awesome dessert ideas for anyone.

  52. Rachel says:

    What a cute idea!

  53. Debbie says:

    There’s nothing like the face,
    Of a kid eating a … OREO cookie.

  58. Traci says:

    Very cute idea! I didn’t read thru all the posts so forgive me if this was already suggested… but how about using a chocolate hershey’s kiss? Foil wrapped, chocolate…? =)

  59. Patti says:

    Made this today. The Orea pudding is an awesome idea. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Love it!! Made this for a party on St.Patricks Day!! Went over great!! I posted this on my blog!! Thank you so much for the wonderful recipie!!!

  62. CTY says:

    Didn’t read all the comments– sorry if this is a repeat.
    Hershey Nuggets are wrapped in gold foil, they could be used if you can’t find the gold coins.
    Only problem is that they have almonds in them. So watch the allergies & young children.
