Caramel Mud Pie Cups

Caramel Mud Pie Cups

It’s not a picnic (or any meal really) around here without dessert so here is our dessert from the Young Women picnic and it was so tasty!  It comes from a blog called “Inside BruCrew Life”; it was easy to put together so if you need a quick, no bake treat this summer, you might want to give this a try.  She made them inside cute little mason jars but I found these little plastic cups at the dollar store and figured they were perfect for a picnic since they could be tossed after using.

3/4 cup crushed pretzels

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 tablespoon sugar

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping

3/4 cup Cool Whip

1 (3.4 oz) chocolate pudding

1 1/3 cups milk

1  Stir together pretzels, butter and sugar.  Spoon into 8 small jars or dishes.

2  Beat cream cheese and sugar until creamy.  Add caramel and beat again.  Fold in Cool Whip.  Spoon into jars over crust.

3  Combine pudding mix and milk and whisk for 2 minutes.  Spoon evenly over cream cheese layer.  Refrigerate.

4  Top with more Cool Whip before serving, if desired.

I topped mine with a dollop of Cool Whip and then some Pampered Chef Sweet Caramel Sprinkles. Here’s a side view so you can see all the layers:
