Now that Mardi Gras is over are you wondering what to do with all of those Moonpies you caught at the parade?
I stumbled upon a couple of clever ideas from The Chattanooga Bakery’s Moonpie Website.
Don’t have Mardi Gras where you are? Don’t worry! The Chattanooga Bakery has you covered!
You can purchase them online here.
From the Moonpie website:
- 1 – 5.1oz box of instant vanilla pudding
- 1 – 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1.5 cups of cold water
- 3 cups heavy whipping cream***
- 1 box of your favorite MoonPie
Mix first three ingredients well and refrigerate until set (4hrs-overnight.)After the pudding has set: whip 3 cups heavy whipping cream until you soft peaks form. Then, fold pudding into the whipped cream until smooth and creamy. For presentation use a large container to layer pudding, crushed MoonPies (choose your favorite flavor), banana slices, repeat and top with crushed MoonPies.
***I love short cuts, so I recommend substituting whipped topping in lieu of whipping the cream yourself. – Kristal
- 1 box of Vanilla MoonPie
- 4-6 fresh chilled strawberries
- Whipped Cream
Place MoonPie in a bowl. Use a fork to poke holes in the MoonPie to let the juice soak in. Cover the MoonPie with the strawberries (and the juice), then add some whipped cream. Let sit for 5 minutes (if you can wait that long).
