So summer is officially here, it’s H.O.T. and the fourth of July is next weekend. What does that mean? It’s time to whip up some sand pudding! This recipe has been one of the most popular on my blog to date! Rightly so, it’s delicious, easy and fun and not to mention that you don’t have to use an oven. Which is a total WIN for the summer.
I don’t know why I never thought of this before, but I made a YouTube tutorial for sand pudding! I usually share makeup, beauty and hair stuff, but I thought it would be fun to branch out a little and because this recipe is so popular, I thought it would be a good place to start!
3 or 4 Oreos
8 oz Cream Cheese
1/4 C Butter
2/3 C powdered sugar
2 small pkgs French Vanilla pudding mix
2 3/4 C Milk
12 oz Cool Whip
Crush Oreos and Vanilla Wafers in a food processor. In a separate bowl, cream together softened 8 oz cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. In a different bowl, mix the instant pudding with the milk. Add the pudding mixture to the cream cheese mixture. Gently fold in the cool whip. Layer into buckets starting with pudding, sand, pudding etc. ending with a layer of sand. Finish off with a cute shovel for a serving spoon!
You can double the recipe if you have two buckets or a large one like in this video (although I didn’t double it here, I could have). If you want to make it ahead of time, make the sand and the pudding portions separately and then assemble the day of the event. If you assemble too early the pudding with make the sand mushy.
We bought a sand bucket specifically for this recipe and have never used it outside. It’s a fun family favorite!
I hope you get a chance to make this sand pudding this summer and bring it to a fun event! I promise it will be a big hit!
