Sand Pudding

Sand Pudding

The teenagers from church were coming over for a pool party last night and I volunteered to make them a treat so when I saw this, I knew it was perfect!  And apparently it was delicious too because the buckets were scraped clean!  The recipe comes from “Ma Nouvelle Mode”.  I found the buckets at Toys R Us for $3 each.  I doubled the recipe but probably should have made 3 batches and then the buckets would have been full and people could have had seconds, who knew it would be such a hit?  I used a bag of Wilton candy melts and made some sea shell shaped chocolates for the top which gave it just that extra dash of cuteness.

1 box Nilla Wafers

3 – 4 Oreos

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup butter, softened

2/3 cup powdered sugar

2 small boxes French Vanilla pudding mix

2 3/4 cups milk

12 oz Cool Whip, thawed

1  Crush Nilla Wafers and Oreos in food processor.

2  Cream together cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar until smooth.  (I used my mixer for this.)

3  Whisk together pudding mix and milk until smooth.

4  Add pudding mixture to cream cheese mixture and stir until smooth.

5  Carefully fold Cool Whip into pudding/cream cheese mixture.

6  Layer in bucket starting with pudding then sand ending with sand.  (I actually crushed all of the Oreos since I bought a whole package and put the leftover Oreo crumbs on the bottom of each bucket as the first layer.)

7  Top with sea shell shaped chocolates if desired.

Here’s a top view of both the buckets:

  1. Hi Penny, I can only imagine how much fun it is to have the teenagers over for a pool party. Cliff is working on the pictures. There are good ones, funny ones and some that are typical of the Smith/Watkins clan getting together. I printed the delicious dinner menu you served and do not know what I did with it. Josh is here from Denmark and I would like to serve your delicious food while they are here. I know you are very busy but would you send me the recipes or tell me where I can find them? Hope all is well at the Johnson’s beautiful home. Alice

  2. I love the Sand Pudding Idea. Never Mind sending me the recipes for our delicious dinner. I am so proud of myself. I found them under June 5, 2015 recipes. Thanks again for a delicious meal and yes the sauce was to die for. Alice
