No summer is complete without a little sand between the toes. Have you been to the beach yet? Sunbathers and sand castle architects truly dig Play in the Sand Day on August 11th.
Go with the grain on Play in the Sand Day. Pick up a pail and shovel, and smooth out that beach towel. Take the day off on August 11th, and hunt for beautiful seashells and intriguing pieces of driftwood or sea glass at the shore. Perhaps this is the perfect and playful dessert for this day
36 vanilla cream-filled sandwich cookies
3 (3.9 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix (You could also try lemon flavor)
6 cups milk
1 large package gummy fish candy
Place the sandwich cookies into a resealable plastic zipper bag, and crush with a rolling pin into crumbs. To get finer sand, chop cookies in a food processor. Whisk together the pudding mix with the milk in a bowl, stirring for 2 minutes. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the crushed sandwich cookie crumbs into the bottom of a serving bowl, and spoon the pudding over the crumbs. Smooth out the top of the pudding, then top with the rest of the cookie crumbs to resemble sand. Poke gummy fish halfway into the sand and add a cute umbrella. Refrigerate until serving.
