  • 24 Reese’s miniatures
  • 4 cups milk divided
  • 1 small package chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 small package vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter or REESE’S spread
  • Reese’s Pieces eggs
  • Orange jelly beans
  • Green edible Easter grass
  • Reese’s Pieces eggs


  • Unwrap the Reese’s miniatures and place in a food processor. Pulse 3-5 times, or until the miniatures are crumbled, being careful not to overprocess them. (You could also chop the miniatures finely with a knife).
  • Mix the chocolate pudding mix with 2 cups of milk. Pour about 1/2 inch of pudding into the bottom of each cup, using about half of the pudding. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla pudding mix, 1/4 cup peanut butter, and milk. Pour the vanilla pudding over the chocolate pudding to form a layer that is approximately 1/2 inch thick. Repeat the chocolate and vanilla layers. If the pudding has set up too much and is difficult to pour, add a couple of tablespoons of milk to loosen it up. Spoon the crumbled Reese’s miniatures over the top of the pudding, distributing evenly.
  • To make the carrots, make a small hole in the top of each orange jelly bean using a toothpick or skewer. Tear or cut a piece of edible Easter grass that is approximately 1 inch long, then fold in half and gently stick the grass into the top of the jelly bean. Nestle the carrots into the Reese’s layer.
  • To make the birds nests, cut small pieces of edible Easter grass and arrange into a rough nest shape in the middle of the Reese’s layer. Top with Reese’s Pieces eggs.
  • Chill pudding cups 30-60 minutes before serving.
