Pudding cups make for a fancy but simple treat for any party. Use whatever you have on hand to make a flavorful treat your family will love. 
 
 
While I was menu planning last week (oh yeah! I actually planned a menu!), I came across a recipe for these Strawberry-Orange phyllo cups. They were filled with oranges and strawberries, and a yogurt dressing. Although it sounded and looked nice, I went with what I already had on hand – pudding and frozen berries!
 
Since New Years Eve is upon us, I thought it would be fun to dress them up a bit with some piped almond bark. The kids and I loved them, and there was a little something for each of them – almond bark for one, pudding for another, and berries for the third. I of course enjoyed the whole thing.

Ingredients
  1. Phyllo Dough
  2. cooking spray
  3. pudding
  4. Pomegranate arils
  5. blueberries
  6. almond bark
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Thaw phyllo dough according to directions on package. Place 2 phyllo dough sheets on top of each other. cut in half lengthwise and width wise, creating 4 rectangles. Coat the top with cooking spray.
  3. Gently press one stack of phyllo dough into pan. I used a mini cheesecake pan, but a muffin tin, or custard cups would also work. Gently press a 2nd stack of the dough across the first stack. Repeat steps 1-3 for each cup you want to make.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Very gently remove the phyllo cups from pan.
  5. Spoon pudding into the cups, top with berries and almond bark designs.
For the Almond Bark decor
  1. Melt your almond bark for 30seconds in the microwave. Stir and repeat, until bark is melted and smooth.
  2. Pour into a piping bag, fitted with smallest tip you have - I used a Wilton 4 tip. Be careful because the bark is hot, and will also easily pour out the tip.
  3. Carefully pipe designs onto a sheet of wax paper. As I found out, most will end up cracking if you don't use the wax paper, and it's just easier to get them off wax.
