Paleo Tombstone Pudding Cups - Gluten-free, dairy-free, tree nut-free, keto. Fun Halloween snack or dessert!

I just love themed food and these Paleo Tombstone Pudding Cups are such a fun Halloween treat!. It doesn’t take much to make something regular like pudding feel festive and magical and thesedo just that! Even better – the pudding base is my Paleo Pudding with hidden veggies. Woot, mom win!

I used this fun FREE tombstone cupcake topper printable to easily turn these into a spooky Halloween snack or treat. Layered with crushed paleo cookie crumbs and optional coconut cream, and topped with plastic spiders or spider rings from the dollar store, my boys couldn’t wait to dive into these!

And, I love that it only took 15 minutes of prep time to make. Perfect for any Halloween event or meal!

Servings 6


  • 1 recipe my Paleo Pudding see recipe below
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs see notes
  • 1 batch whipped coconut cream optional, 2 of my boys like it without this layer
  • clear cups and decorations as desired


  • Pour 1/3 cup of the pudding recipe into each of the 6 cups.
  • Top with 1 tablespoon cookie crumbs.
  • If using, add a layer of 3-4 tablespoons of whipped coconut cream. I just do a big scoop, don't over think this.
  • Top with another layer of 1/3 cup pudding.
  • Sprinkle with another 1 tablespoon cookie crumbs and top as desired with tombstones, spiders, and other creepy things!
  • Chill for 3-4 hours until pudding is thick. Serve cold and store extras in the fridge for up to a week.


For the cookie crumbs, I used some of my Paleo Fudgy Chocolate Cookies. You can also use Simple Mills chocolate cookies to keep it Paleo. If you just need GF/DF the Gluten-free Oreos I find at Walmart work great too! I crush the cookies in my food processor to get a nice dirt-like texture.
I use the free printable tombstone toppers found here.

Servings 8 1/2 cup pudding cups
Calories 98 kcal


  • 2 cups steamed riced cauliflower* About 3 cups fresh or frozen, steamed then measured
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup nut or sun butter We love almond butter or cashew butter. I don't recommend peanut butter.
  • 1/4 cup honey*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 15 oz can coconut cream** use only the cream, no liquid


  • In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  • Eat immediately or chill for at least an hour to thicken. Store in the fridge and enjoy as a pudding or rock it as a fruit dip.



*FOR KETO - Use 2-3 tablespoons Lakanto Sugar-Free Maple Syrup or granulated Monk Fruit sweetener to sweeten instead, to taste.
*I love using steam in a bag riced cauliflower to make this come together quickly. 
**Coconut cream can be omitted if you have a coconut allergy, but will make it deliciously creamy like a mousse and highly recommended. Plus, the healthy fats are awesome for satiety and decreased cravings.
