Ingredients

    • 4 1/2 cups whole milk
    • 1 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
    • 1/3 cup cornstarch
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 5 egg yolks
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • green gel food coloring
    • 2 cups crushed chocolate sandwich cookies
    • 12 gold foiled caramel candies (Roll-o)
    • 6 plastic cocktail glasses
    • black permanent marker
    • hot glue gun

Directions

  1. To make the pudding, heat 4 cups of milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it begins to bubble around the edges.
  2. In a large bowl or batter bowl, whisk sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk in the egg yolks and 1/2 cup milk. Whisk until pale yellow in color. Use a ladle to add one ladle of hot milk at a time, whisking constantly. Slowly add half of the milk mixture.
  3. Carefully pour the egg mixture into the saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it comes to a bubble, whisking constantly. Cook for an additional two minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Strain through a sieve to catch any cooked egg pieces. Add green food coloring.
  5. Divide pudding evenly among cups. Top with crushed cookie crumbs. Use a marker to draw on face and stitches on forehead. Use glue gun to glue caramel candies for plugs. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in fridge until ready to serve.
