Make Your Own Mini Pie Bar

I was asked to participate in the Pudding Snack Packs #SnackPackSummer program. Although I have been compensated, all views and opinions are 100% honest and my own. 

One of my favorite party trends right now is the “make your own” food bar trend. I’ve seen everything from lemonade bars to popcorn bars to my own make your own mini pizza bar. I love them because they give people a chance to choose what they really want to eat. Since I’m a picky eater myself, I’m all about giving people choices. And today I’m here to bring you another fun make your own idea, a make your own mini pie bar using Snack Pack pudding cups.

I was inspired to put this together by a recipe on the Snack Pack website for Mix ‘N Match Pudding Pies. I thought, why not take that idea and turn it into a mini pie bar, perfect for any party. And the best part is that it’s so easy. All you have to do is buy various flavors of Snack Pack Pudding and toppings, put them in bowls, and let your guests make their own delicious creations. I just picked a handful of my favorite toppings to include, but you could easily add other things like chopped fruit, hot fudge, or even gummy bears.

I setup my mini pie bar with individual graham cracker pie crusts, various kinds of Snack Pack pudding cups, Reddi-Whip, and all sorts of toppings. I love using the Snack Pack pudding cups for this because everyone can just have one each and not have to deal with getting pudding out of a gigantic bowl.

If you think people will need more than one regular size pudding cup, you can also pick up Super Snack Pack pudding cups at Walmart, which are bigger than the regular size and would be perfect for someone who wants a little extra pudding in their pie. And best of all, right now you can use this coupon to save $1.00 on two packs of Super Snack Packs at Walmart while supplies last. For my mini pie bar, I just went with the three most basic – chocolate, vanilla, and butterscotch – but there are a ton of different options out there that could make some delicious pies.

    This is brilliant. I love how fun and classy this looks. This would be a fun, less messy and inexpensive alternative to an ice cream sundae setup. We’ve done the ice cream social thing in the park before and having to keep the ice cream from becoming a melting disaster wasn’t fun. This is great! #client

    This is such an amazing idea!! Kids would have so much making their own – it’s perfect for a family night or get together.

      Thanks! This would make a really fun family night and maybe you could tie it into some sort of lesson on creativity or uniqueness. The possibilities are endless. :)

    Such a cute idea, and so easy! My boys would go totally nuts for all the toppings and put all of them on one pie! Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great weekend!
