For the cookies
  1. 4 c. all-purpose flour
  2. 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  3. 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  4. 1 c. butter, softened
  5. 1 c. sugar
  6. 1 c. light brown sugar, packed
  7. 2 large eggs, cold
  8. 1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
  9. 1 bottle black gel food coloring
  10. 1 bottle green gel food coloring
For the Pudding cups
  1. 2 packages instant chocolate pudding mix (3.4 oz each)
  2. 4 c. cold milk
  3. 1 package Oreos
  1. Make the cookies: In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Set aside.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat peanut butter, butter and sugars until fully combined, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla, then gradually add in flour mixture.
  3. Roll out dough so it’s 1/4-inch thick. Use a paring knife to cut out Groot shapes, tracing around the cutout from the printable stencil above (or freehand it). Use the tine of a fork or a toothpick to etch lines along the cookie to emulate Groot’s vine-like body.
  4. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and chill in the freezer for 30 minutes to prevent spreading.
  5. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Use black gel frosting to draw on eyes.
  6. Let cool completely, then use green gel frosting to highlight around baby Groot’s hairline.
  7. Make the pudding cups: Prepare pudding mix according to package instructions. Spoon into small plastic tumblers.
  8. Place Oreos in a gallon-sized resealable bag and crush with a spoon until finely crumbled and resembling dirt. Sprinkle Oreo crumbs on top of each pudding cup.
  9. Place a Groot cookie about 1/3 of the way into each pudding cup. Serve.
