A National Chocolate Pudding Day Recipe: Fun for the Kids!

In honor of National Chocolate Pudding Day, I wanted to post something fun for the young ones (and the young-at-heart). This is a dessert recipe that is just as fun to make as it is to eat, and it’s so simple, your kids can do it themselves!

(Warning: This may get a little messy, so you might want to throw a few paper towels down, and let the little chefs wear your chef coat.)

Cup of Dirt

Servings: 2

Prep Time: 10-15 minutes

Ingredients

  • Chocolate Pudding: 2 cups. (Either make your own or grab a couple of Snack Packs, either way is fine!)
  • Oreos: 8
  • Gummy worms: 5-6

Method

  1. Crush up the Oreos the best you can, and try to break all of the bigger chunks up. Some people like it to be a fine powder, while others prefer it a little chunky.
  2. Mix about 1/3 of the crushed Oreos with the chocolate pudding in a bowl.
  3. Pour the pudding into two cups and top each off with the rest of the crushed Oreos.
  4. Throw in some gummy worms.
  5. Enjoy!

Easy, Delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu

Happy National Cordon Bleu Day everyone! In honor of this very special occasion, we’ve decided to do something a little different for our loyal readers and followers. We’ve decided to bring you a step by step recipe for easy and delicious Chicken Cordon Bleu, using ingredients that won’t cost you an arm and a leg! So, put on your chef coats and join us as we cook up a tasty recipe! We hope you enjoy reading this as much as we enjoyed eating it!

Step 1: Gather your ingredients.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • – Canola or vegetable oil
  • – Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • – Any thinly sliced ham – we used Hillshire Farms…
  • – Any thinly sliced swiss cheese – we used Sargento Reduced Fat
  • – About ¼-1/2 cup of Bread Crumbs – we used Progresso Italian Style
  • – About ¼ cup of All-Purpose Flour
  • – 1 large egg or 2 smaller eggs
  • – Toothpicks

Step 2: Cut or butterfly the chicken breasts into thin cutlets, the thinner they are, the easier it will be to roll them later.

Step 3: Try to flatten the thicker pieces. You can use a meat tenderizer for that…

Step 4: Put the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs into separate bowls. The bread crumbs and flour should be in the bigger bowls to avoid a mess…

 

Step 5: Coat each piece of chicken in flour and set them aside.

 

Step 6: Lay a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on each piece of chicken. If you want to go a little higher quality, you can use prosciutto instead of the ham.

 

Step 7: Roll these tightly, and secure with 2-3 toothpicks.

 

            – So, they should look like this at this point…

Step 8: Dip the rolled chicken, ham and cheese into the egg, coat evenly.

 

Step 9: Dip the rolls in the bread crumbs, and make sure to coat it evenly, and shake off the excess.

 

Step 10: Pour oil to cover the bottom of a large pan, and put the stove on medium-high heat. Once it is hot enough, put the chicken into the oil, and cook them until golden brown. Be sure to cut into it and make sure the inside is all white, and the juices run clear.

 

Step 11: Enjoy with a favorite side dish! We chose Au Gratin Potatoes, because we love our cheese!

  • Don’t forget to pull out the toothpicks! (I learned the hard way)
