Delicious layers of creamy pudding alternate with layers of crushed up cookies that look just like real sand. This yummy Summer Sand Pudding is the perfect treat for get togethers, back yard barbecues, even pool parties. And it’s a fun surprise for kids, and the kid still in all of us adults.
Are you a stickler for the grocery list? Or for grocery day for that matter. Because, I. AM
But every now and then, along comes a particular craft, or a recipe, or something, that looks so great… I don’t care that grocery day is still 3 more weeks away. I must has it. N O W. And off to the store I go.
That is precisely what happened when I first saw Summer Sand Pudding. It looked soooo real. I couldn’t wait to show my guys. Even the presentation was kick-butt. In a sand pail, with a toy shovel for serving. Genius!
This recipe makes a lot, and it’s rich so I’d suggest making this when you’re planning on a fun dessert for a crowd. It’s perfect for a back-yard barbecue or pretty much any pool party, ever.
