Magic Jelly Beans and the Lollipop Garden (Pudding Treats)




 This idea is something super fun and 
magical that would be great to incorporate into
an Easter/Spring family tradition. 

I saw an idea using "Magic Jelly Beans & a Lollipop Garden"

I was really inspired and thought it was a cool concept.

I knew I had to adapt the idea into an edible craft treat.


Magic Jelly Beans & 
The Lollipop Garden Pudding Treats

First pick out your jelly beans....


Give them a wish and a kiss.

Now they are MAGIC jelly beans.

Next, mix up your "soil".
I used sugar free pudding and crushed up 
a bunch of Oreos, a few left over brownies and some
chocolate wafer cookies. I just used what I had on hand. 

Then, put it into your "pots"

I did put a piece of wax paper over the bottom hole in the pot.


But only fill half way! 
You still have to plant your 
MAGIC BEANS!
 


Now, make a quick wish, and blow them a kiss.

Then put more soil on top of your beans.

Add some "dirt" which might be more crushed Oreos.



Now...place these somewhere special (wink wink)
to rest overnight and see what MAGICALLY APPEARS!


 WOW...look whats growing.....
some grass and....

Before morning, you will help make the "MAGIC"
for your kids but adding some green colored coconut for 
the newly grown grass and a fun lollipop or two on top!!! 

~~ MAGICAL LOLLIPOP GARDEN ~~




SURPRISE!!  





How cool. 

Here are the basic supplies I used, but you can 
certainly adapt any way you want. I could
see using a chocolate cupcake in place of the pudding.

Small Terra Cotta Pots
Wax Paper (I used a small amount for the bottom of the pots)
Ribbon/Stickers
Sugar Free Pudding
Oreos, Brownies or any Chocolate Cookie
Magic Jelly Beans
Coconut
Green Food Coloring to color the Coconut
Fun Lollipops
 A Kiss and a Wish

If you make these treats or plant the magic beans
outside or incorporate your own twist on this idea,
I hope you are inspired to create a new family tradition.

This is so cute that I am going to do this the night before Easter, even though my boys are 11 and 16. So cute. They'll still like them! Especially if they were to turn into cash or an iTunes gift card! fat chance. Lollipops it is, or maybe Easter iced sugar cookies!

Absolutely adorable! This reminded me ... that my oldest son wanted to plant eggs in the backyard ... so that we could grow chickens! He is now 37 years-old ... he doesn't remember it ... I'll never forget it!
