Make-It-Yourself Monday #2

This week I made the most delicious sand ever.

Yup, you heard that right.

I came across the recipe on Pinterest. As far as newer social media sites go, I really like Pinterest. The basic idea is that you see something online that you like and then pin it to one of your boards with a comment. That photo then links back to the site and other people can see and share what you've pinned. I find it to be a handy way of keeping track of interesting recipes or yarn or fiber I want to buy/try. You can see my boards here, if you'd like.

Anyway, back to the making. You basically take a whole box of Nilla Wafers and a handful of Oreos and grind them up in your handy dandy food processor:
It is really amazing how much this stuff looks like sand in person.
Then you do unspeakably tasty things to a couple of boxes of Jell-o pudding and layer the cookie dust and pudding inside ridiculously cute sand pails:
Gotta love layers!
And that's it! The recipe can be found on the Ma Nouvelle Mode blog. Pros: really simple and tasty. Cons: not healthy at all. I made it to bring to the party the Fiasco's family threw for his birthday. His little nephew was so grossed out when he thought he was eating a big spoonful of sand! Too cute.

What's your favorite fool-the-innocent-children recipe?

Check out what everyone else is making!


  1. Ants on a log, spaghetti is really worms, or anything else that's Halloween. Thanks for sharing!

  2. We used to make dirt cups (basically the same thing you have here, just more oreos) and stick gummi worms in them.


I love reading your comments, thanks for stopping by!
