I'm posting a day earlier this week because I was invited to participate in a Foodie Fake Out! Stephanie from Back for Seconds asked a few of us bloggers to come up with a recipe that looks like something else. I was so excited because I love stuff like this...especially those little hamburgers that are made out of cookies :) There are seven of us who are participating so that gives you a chance to see some cute ideas! Let me introduce you to the other lovely ladies:
For my foodie fake out I decided to make Sand Dessert...a dessert that looks like sand, however it's made with cookies, cream cheese, pudding and cool whip! It's a snap to put together since it doesn't need to bake and it makes quite an impression at parties...I hope you enjoy!
Ingredients are as follows:
1 (18-20 oz.) vanilla creme sandwich cookies
2 1/2 C milk
2 (3.4 oz.) packages vanilla instant pudding
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
8 ounces cool whip
1 new (7 inch) plastic pail (optional)
Grind up the cookies; set aside.
Whisk together the milk and pudding; set aside.
Cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Mix in the cool whip.
Fold in the pudding.
Place a layer of cookie crumbs in the bottom of the pail.
Add a layer of the pudding/cream cheese/cool whip mixture.
Continue to repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until served. Add some cute decorations if you'd like.
Spoon some out and enjoy!
Don't forget to stop by the other blogs to see what they've created too!
