I had really intended on scheduling posts for while we were on vacation. But man, I was so busy in that week or two before we left that I just didn’t have time. And then, conveniently, my new design was ready to go the day after we left so it all kind of worked out.
And yeah! Did you see the new design?! I’m pretty excited about it. The lovely girls at Wooden Spoons Kitchen did an amazing job. And now my next task is to speed the site up. Hopefully within the next few weeks, everything will be worked out.
So now, Sand Pudding!
It occurred to me about halfway through taking these photos that worms probably don’t live in sand. Then I remembered that the baby and I both got bit by something on our trip to the beach and my mom said that it may have been sand fleas. And that’s when I decided that gummy worms are much cuter than sand fleas (seriously, google those things!) and the worms could just stay on the sand pudding.
This is the kind of dessert that I just love. You guys, I don’t even like pudding. But because it has crushed cookies that look like sand on top, I’m all about it. And of course the kids loved it. My 4 year old keeps asking for “that ice cream with the dirt on top” because he is deeply confused the whole thing.
- 1 11 ounce box Nilla Wafers
- 2 Oreos
- 1 8 ounce block cream cheese
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 3.4 ounce boxes vanilla pudding mix
- 2 3/4 cups milk
- 12 ounces Cool Whip
Put Nilla Wafers and Oreos together in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture resembles sand. Set aside.
Beat together cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Slowly add powdered sugar and beat until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together vanilla pudding mix and milk. Slowly add this mixture to the cream cheese mixture and beat until combined. Gently fold in Cool Whip.
Layer into serving dish of choice (it's really cute in buckets!) starting and ending with the "sand" mixture.
