5 Halloween Pumpkin Pudding Recipes & Ideas
Pumpking Pudding with Mile-High Meringue
This spiced pumpkin pudding with beautiful meringue swirls is inspired by classic Southern pies that are all about the fluffy, golden meringue on top. It is truly an ideal dessert for Halloween night as it is super light, not too sweet and won’t keep you from fitting into your costume.
Harvest Mousse with Spiced Almond Tuiles
This fluffy mousse, which typically calls for butternut squash, could just as easily and deliciously be made with fresh or canned pumpkin. For Halloween, definitely go with pumpkin. You’ll love the smooth texture. Plus, we recommend serving the leftover candied squash as a topping for a heaping bowl of vanilla ice cream.
Pumpkin Pie-Croissant Pudding
Bakers make traditional diplomat pudding with soaked ladyfingers or cake baked with fruit and custard. In this take, use leftover croissants and pumpkin pie filling for a sweet autumnal treat that’s perfect to serve on Halloween. While this dish would make a lovely fall dessert, we think the use of croissants also qualifies it for breakfast.
Pumpkin Pie Chia-Seed Pudding
If you’re looking for a healthy Halloween dessert or a sweet breakfast on the morning of October 31, this chia seed pudding is the answer. This tasty fall dish has all the spices of a delicious pumpkin pie. We highly recommend that you top it with chopped pecans and pepita seeds for a nice crunch.
Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding with Bourbon-Pecan Hard Sauce
These creamy pumpkin bread puddings are baked in pie dishes—so they’re a hybrid dessert. The impressive lattice top is actually made of strips of butternut squash. Serve this delicious dish at your Halloween party or pre-trick-or-treating bash and we guarantee your guests will be coming back for seconds.
