Busy as a bee? Well you're never too busy to make this simple, fun dessert. They take just a few minutes to put together, and then chill in the fridge while you get dinner on the table.

Bumblebees Recipe


  • 14 FAMOUS Chocolate Wafers, divided
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 pkg. (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 4 large black gumdrops
  • 1 piece black shoestring licorice (12 inch), cut into 1-inch pieces


  • Place  10 of the wafers in large resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Use rolling pin to roll over wafers in bag until finely crushed. Break remaining 4 wafers in half; set side.
  • Pour  milk into medium bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes or until well blended. Spoon 1/3 of the pudding evenly into 4 clear dessert cups; top each with about 1 Tbsp. of the crushed wafers. Repeat layers of pudding and crushed wafers; top with remaining pudding. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
  • Decorate  with gumdrops and licorice to resemble the antennae, stingers and eyes of bumble bees. Insert 2 of the reserved wafer halves into each cup for the "wings."
