Sand Puddings Cups

There are so many great recipes out there, and some especially fun ones for kids! These Sand Puddings Cups look so cute, and fun to eat, kids would just love them so much! The mix looks just like sand, the kids will be so exited to see that they can eat something that looks like this. They could even get in on the fun of making them. These would be great for a birthday party instead of making cake, or for a day care or preschool treat for the kids. It would be awesome for any beach themed party too.

The mix is basically just white Oreo cookies and graham crackers! How simple is that? And then the white part is just pudding and whipped cream with some cream cheese. Which would taste so amazing! It would be fun to even throw in some tropical fruit like pineapple, or bananas, even add some coconut to the creamy layer. It would give it a super beachy taste. The graham cracker teddy bears and the little umbrella are a nice touch too, the little gum balls for the beach balls are super adorable. Kids would have so much fun just even playing with it!

You can make your own whipped cream easily and quickly. All it takes for this delicious recipe is to make sure you start off with cold ingredients and cold mixing tools and a cold bowl. You will need some heavy cream, some sweeter, and some vanilla both of which are optional. Take your stand mixer (with a cold bowl), or an electric hand mixer and pour in your heavy cream into your cold bowl. Then beat the heavy cream until peaks form, this should take anywhere from between three to five minutes. Once the peaks form you can add some sweeter, either sugar, maple syrup or honey will do, and some vanilla if you like and mix until the soft peaks again form.

This recipe is a spin off of a classic called Dirt Pudding, made with chocolate Oreo cookies and chocolate pudding, and then you put in gummy worms to make it look like they are crawling in the dirt. Also a big hit at kids parties! I remember when I was younger, and my mom made a bunch of cupcakes for my birthday party, but they all ended up sticking to the sides of the pan, so they were destroyed, instead of throwing them out, we mashed them up a bit and made them into "dirt" and threw in some gummy worms! It was the best thing ever! All my friends were so excited about it.

Oreo cookies have been around for over 100 years, and remain as popular now as they ever were. You just have to mentioned the word Oreo and most people will know what you are talking about. For those that aren't familiar the Oreo is a sandwich cookie that consists of two chocolate wafers with a sweet creme filling in between. The version that is currently sold in the United States is made by the Nabisco division of Mondelēz International. Oreo has become the best-selling cookie in the United States since it was first introduced in 1912.
