Beach Bling: You Can Have Your Beach and Eat It Too!

For those of you that need a little “beach time” but don’t live near one or maybe the weather is not cooperating for an afternoon by the shore, here’s a way to bring the beach to you: whip up some incredibly edible beach of your own!   

These Sand Cups are super tasty and easy to make.  It’s a great family project, too. 

Here’s the recipe:
·                     2 cups milk
·                     1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
·                     1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
·                     1 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers, crushed
1.                 In a large bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Beat with a whisk until well blended. Let stand 5 minutes.
2.                 Fold in whipped topping and half of the crushed cookies.
3.                 Place 1 Tablespoon crushed cookies into a clear plastic tumbler. Fill cups 3/4 full with pudding mixture. Top with remaining crushed cookies. Refrigerate 1 hour.
4.                 Decorate with Gummy Sea Creatures such as:

Gimmi Shells, Gummi Starfish, Gummi Seahorses, Gummi Crabs and Gummi Fish


Gummi Octopi

 And don't forget the colorful Drink Umbrella:

Enjoy your day at the beach!
