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!
