Beach Pail Treat

I've always love a good Oreo Dirt Dessert, so when a friend shared a Sand/Beach Dessert variation from her daughter's beach themed birthday party I had to pass it on. I really get a kick out of the unique summer twist!

The simple {yes!!!} recipes:

2 packages (3.5 to 4 oz) vanilla flavored instant pudding
4 cups milk
1 container (8oz) non-dairy whipped topping
1 box (10 ½ oz) miniature chocolate-chip cookies
2 cups vanilla-wafer cookie crumbs, divided
Shell and/or pebble shaped candies

Prepare pudding using the 4 cups milk according to package directions. Using rubber scraper, fold in the whipped topping then fold in the chocolate chip cookies.

Spoon half of the pudding mixture into a clean 2 ½ quart plastic beach bucket. Sprinkle with half of the vanilla cookie crumbs. Repeat layers. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours to soften the cookies. Decorate with candy shells and pebble candies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

When placing on table put sand, sea shells and plastic fish around the bottom of the bucket for a fun centerpiece. Serve with the plastic shovel.

20 oz. Oreo cookies, crushed
2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2 c. confectioners sugar
2 lg. chocolate instant pudding
4 c. milk
16 oz. Cool Whip
Mix cream cheese, Cool Whip, and sugar. In another bowl mix pudding and milk. Combine cheese and pudding mixtures. Layer pudding mixture and crushed Oreos (start and end with Oreos) in a flower pot. Chill 3-4 hours. Insert flower in center of Dirt Cake for presentation before serving. (Wrap stem in aluminum wrap.) Use a trowel to serve.
Thanks Angela!

Thanks for the recipes. I've been wanting the dirt cake recipe for a while and now it's so great to have the sand one too. Looks like I'll be throwing a party.
