Procedure for preparing Halloween dessert cups
Preparation of the corpus
Crush the cookies in a blender or by hand with a rolling pin in a bag. Add the melted butter and mix well to create a mixture similar to wet sand. Divide this mixture between the glasses and press down thoroughly. Leave the biscuit body on top of each glass as well.
Cook the vanilla pudding in milk according to the instructions. Add sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well. Finally, add the pumpkin puree and mix thoroughly. Allow the pudding to cool and then divide it into glasses on top of the biscuit body.
Place the biscuit base on top of the pudding so that all the pudding is covered. Draw eyes on the mini marshmallow using a chocolate marker or chocolate icing and place them on the top body.
Dessert glasses should be refrigerated for at least 2 hours before serving.
