Bears on the Beach


A few weeks ago we hosted a party with a luau theme.  It was a going away party for some great friends of ours.  We went all out to make this a good night, and in return had a successful gathering.  In preparation for the party, I scoured Pinterest for ideas.  I did find and utilize a handful of great tips to enhance our theme.  I was deep in creative party planning mode when I had an idea of my own.  That’s when I thought of these cute “Bears on the Beach” desert cups. 
Having had all of the ingredients needed for these deserts in the cupboard made this all the easier.  In order to make these treats you will need:
•Desert cups
•Pudding mix- *made as instructed on package.
•Graham cracker crust- *crumbled
•Gummy Bears
•Cocktail Drink Umbrellas

Scoop pudding evenly into each of the desert cups.  Only fill them half way, to ensure room for the additional top layers.  Next add graham cracker crumbs as the “sand” of your beach.  Place these cups in the refrigerator to allow the pudding to firm up.  These desert cups take an hour or so to firm up.  Once firm, remove from the refrigerator and add a gummy bear and umbrella to each desert cup.


These were a huge hit at our luau.  I can’t wait for the chance to make them again.  Thanks for checking out today’s post. All posts and creations done by Jacquelynn Knoll.
