Peanut Butter Pudding

by Kelli H. on June 19, 2013

Last Sunday I made these delicious peanut butter pudding cups for my dad’s father’s day dinner. They were so easy to come together and very low stress. I love minimal stress baking. Although, calling this recipe baking is hardly true. It’s more directions on how to prep something.

When I told David I was making my dad peanut butter pudding, he thought that sounded so gross. I’m not sure what’s up with anti-pudding, but once he tried it he retracted his previous statement. The pudding was the perfect amount of sweetness. The texture was great and the serving size was just right. I don’t have any complaints about this recipe. If anything, I’m raving about this recipe! It definitely makes me want to explore more pudding ideas. I also think it would be delicious to put this into an Oreo crust and turn it into a pudding pie.

Give these a try for the peanut butter or pudding lover in your life. I’m sure they’ll absolutely adore you! Check out some more peanut butter recipes here:

This is such a fun idea for a Father’s Day dinner! I don’t think I’ve ever had homemade peanut butter pudding but I’m sure it’s a million times better than the little snack pack kinds I had as a kid!

Oh my gosh! YUM! I tried to mix peanut butter into Greek yogurt one time and it wasn’t great but these sounds SO good πŸ™‚ I also like how you made it from scratch – gets rid of those extra chemicals in regular pudding.

I tried mixing things into Greek yogurt, too and it definitely isn’t the same. These are so much tastier.
