  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 twists black licorice
  • 1/4 cup vanilla frosting
  • Red liquid or paste food coloring
  • 8 cream-filled oval vanilla sandwich cookies
  • 8 green jelly beans
  • 4 pink jelly beans


  1. In a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Pour into four small bowls; cover and refrigerate.
  2. Meanwhile, cut licorice widthwise into fourths, then lengthwise into thirds; set aside. Combine frosting and red food coloring; frost top of cookies to within 1/2-in. of edge.
  3. Just before serving, insert oval cookies into each bowl of pudding for ears. Add green jelly beans for eyes and a pink jelly bean for nose. Place three pieces of licorice on each side of the nose for whiskers.
