cool summer treats

What you need:
8 graham crackers (i used the cinnamon ones)
1 box of instant banana cream pudding
1 box of instant vanilla pudding
3 tbsp butter 
4 thinly sliced strawberries
paper cups (i used the bathroom size dixie cups for my little one, but feel free to go bigger!)
craft sticks
1 ziploc bag
rolling pin (or glass cup)

First, make each box of pudding, separately, as directed on box

Place all 8 graham crackers in the ziploc bag and use your rolling pin to crush them into small you would a graham cracker crust.

Next, melt your butter and pour over crushed graham crackers. Mix with a fork until moist and crumbly.

Now go ahead and get your pudding out of the refrigerator and let's get started on the fun part!

Begin by adding one layer of vanilla pudding to your paper cup. (the size of your layers will depend on the size of your cup)  

Then a layer of graham crackers...

Add your layer of sliced strawberries to the outside of the cup....i think this step is what makes it so pretty :) and strawberries are delicious right now!

now the layer of banana pudding...

and another yummy layer of graham crackers (this was my hubby's favorite part to eat ;)

and a final layer of vanilla pudding

then put your craft stick in all the way to the bottom of the cup

Freeze for several hours or overnight.
 Then just peel the paper cup off and let the fun begin!!

Your little ones will love this sweet summertime treat

And maybe your husband too!

Have fun! 

Happy Friday :)
