Rainbow Lego Men - Frozen Pudding Snacks


So who loves Lego?? I think I've said it a million times but we've definitely got lego freaks living here.  Lego, lego (lego) and more lego.  Apparently we just can't get enough.  We have hundreds of minifigs around the house, we could populate a country with minifigs.  That's either amazing or pretty sad (depending on your perspective!)

And I've made mini edible lego guys like a gagillion times too.   My goal is to use as many different foods as possible to get 110% out of my silicone ice cube mold! 


These guys are are made out of vanilla pudding.  But you can also make them from candy melt or yogurt too.  The only ingredients used for these little dudes are a box of vanilla pudding, some food coloring, and a lego minifig mold (I got mine at a Lego store, but you can order them online too).  Mix up the instant pudding, separate into bowls, tint with coloring, and "pipe" into mold.


If you get really ambitious, you can go for the real lego dude feel by changing the colors for the shirt and pants.


The process is basically the same as described here for making these guys - except replace the candy melt with the tinted pudding.  Then freeze well (at least a couple hours).  You can definitely just keep it simple and use solid colors - tastes the same!


And you know what, if some break popping them out of the mold, who cares, they taste the same too!


Just eat them fast!


And you get some tiny little frozen pudding snacks for a unique summer time treat!  I get so tired of the kiddos yelling for ice pops this summer and this was definitely a fun change for them.


You could even use other ice cube trays or molds for this and change it up by using other pudding flavors.

What other food can I can make Lego men out of??! If you have any suggestions, leave them in the comments!

  3. And who is the GENIUS that has chosen typeface and point-size for the body of this page...? Absolutely horrifying...

    1. Wow if typeface and point size on a blog is horrifying I would hate to hear how childhood cancer and natural disasters affects you. SInce you are anonymous I can't contact you but would love to hear your recommendations or why its so horrifying. Have a great day :)

    2. Anonymous is being very rude, but just as an FYI, although your blog shows up fine in IE, when I use Chrome or Mozilla to view it, the type shows up differently and it's much harder to read. It may be worth experimenting with different fonts and viewing it on several different browsers to make sure that it's easy to read on all browsers.

      These treats are awesome, by the way! After seeing them, I know my son will be clamoring for me to buy some of those molds. Great idea!

    3. Interesting, had no idea different browsers changed fonts?! It may be time for some template changes anyway. Thanks Jen!
