The story of Peter Rabbit takes me back to my childhood. It’s incredible that some stories you read stick with you forever. I did some light research and found out the original story was published back in 1902, that’s 1-9-0-2 folks! That’s over 100 years ago and it’s still relevant today. When I heard they were making a movie inspired by the original tale I wanted to make a themed dessert to celebrate. I decided to make Peter Rabbit Movie Themed Pudding Cups.
The Peter Rabbit Movie debut is tomorrow (Friday, 2/9) and it has a pretty incredible cast. I’m a huge fan of James Cordon, simply because his carpool karaoke segments are so much fun. I love seeing him interact and sing along with celebrities. My favorite segment included Adele. She was rapping lyrics by Nicki Minaj and I literally fell off my seat laughing. Rose Byrne is also great. I love her character in Bridesmaids (another funny movie by the way). I’m less familiar with the other cast members but I’m sure they’ll do a great job. Wikipedia is toting this movie as “live-action” so I’m assuming the pace is going to be upbeat and fast. Good luck to the cast and team behind the Peter Rabbit Movie!
OK, now back to the dessert. When I originally thought about the book and movie I wanted to create something that was inspired by both. I also wanted the it to be easy to make so that children could get involved. I decided to create pudding cups that look like dirt from the garden and include a frosting carrot on top. The pudding cups are quick to make because there are only a few ingredients: instant pudding, Oreos, frosting, and food coloring. Simple!
Is Peter Rabbit one of your favorite stories? Are you planning on seeing the movie? Like this themed dessert? Let me know in the comments section down below. 😉
In the recipe I mention pulsing the Oreos with a food processor. I use the Ninja and it’s great. I’ll link to it below:

If you don't have a food processor to pulse the Oreos you can put them in a plastic bag and beat them with a heavy spoon to crush them up.
