Happy Hippo Mud Slide

Do you ever get the urge for a snack, or dessert, and as you start making it you realize, “yeah…this might actually be pretty gross…”

That was me last night. And I have no guilt. I wanted chocolate pudding and I wanted a Happy Hippo (if you’ve never had a Happy Hippo, please stop reading this blog, run to the store or hop on Amazon and purchase, in bulk. It will change your life). I decided to concoct a special, pre-birthday treat that I have named a “Hippo Mud Slide”.

Here’s what you will need:


  • Happy Hippos
  • Whipped Cream
  • Chocolate Pudding (or really any pudding your heart desires)
  • Fruit Snacks
  • A strong stomach and willingness to gain a few pounds


I decided this was a hippo standing on top of a sandy shore, a safe distance from the mudslide. Some endangered red turtles were floating along the mud slide, unsure of their destiny.

It might not look the most attractive, but my goodness, it hit the spot and was exactly what I needed.


Feel free to improvise based on what you have available in your pantry. And be sure to share pictures with us if you recreate this “recipe”, if you can call it that.
