This Sand Pudding Recipe has been a family favorite for many years!
Sand Pudding tastes delicious and is so realistic looking that it is the perfect dessert for any backyard barbecue, beach party or just because.
This is a recipe I shared here with you last summer, but it was a hit so I am sharing it again today and making up a batch for my family!
The ingredients were simple as were the instructions to create this dessert that will have people wondering if it is REALLY sand or not. I brought it to our family reunion and it was gobbled up quickly!
My daughter asked if I would make it again the next day. I’m pretty sure she ate half the pail herself 😉 Seriously though, this was a very quick & easy dessert to put together with a LOT of wow factor included.
I just make mine and put it in a large sand pail. But I know some have said they would like to make it and put it in little individual sand pails like these ones here.
