These shark-infested pudding cups are a great way to kick off summer.



  1. Prepare the pudding according to the package directions. Once the pudding has set, stir in enough blue food coloring to make the pudding light blue, 3 to 4 drops.
  2. Place the purple and yellow chew candies in a small microwave-safe dish. Microwave until the chews are just softened, about 10 seconds. Use your hands to mix the chews together until they are a purple-gray color. Flatten the candy into four 2-inch squares and use kitchen shears to cut each into a shark fin. Dust the fins in confectioners' sugar and brush off any excess. 
  3. Whisk the heavy cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. 
  4. Remove 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs and set aside. Divide the remaining crumbs between 4 clear cups. Add 1/2 cup of the pudding mixture to each cup. Sprinkle the reserved graham cracker crumbs on one side of each cup to mimic a strip of sand on the beach. Spread the whipped cream in a line just behind the sand to make it look like crashing waves. Stick a shark fin in the pudding water. Put a gummy ring on the pudding water and stick a graham cracker bear in the middle. Serve immediately.
