Heath Bar Pudding Dessert

 I can't believe this is already day 4 of the Homeschool Crew Blog Hop. If you haven't read many of the blogs you should hop on over and read some. They are very informative in so many different areas.

Kids like dessert & I think any kid would like to help in the kitchen if they knew they were going to make a special treat that they love. One of my girls favorites is the Heath Bar Pudding Dessert. This recipe is so easy & very adaptable. You could change the pudding flavor or use a different candy bar to change it up. If you have small children you can prepare the brownies, pudding, and whipped cream. Then let even the littlest kids layer their own dish.

  • Brownies, crumbled
  • Chocolate pudding mix
  • Whipped Cream or Cool Whip
  • Heath Bar, broken

 Prepare your brownies first. You can use a box mix or your favorite recipe. Here is the Brownie recipe we use.
  • 1 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Melt butter and add in sugar, water, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine the rest of the ingredients. Combine wet & dry ingredients and bake in a greased 9 X 13 pan at 350° for 18-25 minutes.
Crumble half the pan of brownies and put 1/2 of them in the bottom of an 8X8 pan or individual dishes. You will repeat each layer twice, so don't get to much the first time.
 Scoop enough prepared pudding to cover the brownie.
 Sprinkle crushed Heath Bar over pudding. It is better to break the candy bar up in the package. If your child can not break the candy with their hands they can use a small hammer to pound on it.
 After the Heath Bar spoon enough whipped cream to cover the top of the dessert. You will now repeat each layer. Crumbled brownies, pudding, whipped cream, and Heath Bar.

Whipped Cream:
  • 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
Beat whipping cream on high for several minutes. Sprinkle sugar into cream and beat until it gets thick.

 Chill and enjoy!

We have made this several times for potluck dinners. To use a 9X13 pan you will need:
  • 9X13 pan of brownies 
  • 2 boxes of chocolate pudding
  • large container of cool whip or whipped cream
  • about 4 heath bars
I think kids would have fun making their own dessert for a party. You could have several different candy bars already crushed & a couple of different flavors of pudding. YUM! Maybe I'll have to talk to my kids about this.
