A few weeks ago, when I was making (and then pinning) my Dirt Pudding recipe, I noticed a bunch of recipes for “sand pudding” kept popping up. I was introduced to dirt pudding in it’s many varieties as a teenager, but I had never heard of sand pudding.
My curiosity got the best of me and I clicked a few of the pins to see what this was all about. It seemed that, unlike dirt pudding, which is almost always a combination of Oreo cookies, chocolate pudding, Cool Whip, and gummy worms, sand pudding is not simply it’s vanilla counterpart.
I decided to make a version that took ideas from several of the ideas from the pins I found (like this one and this one and this one) and make it my own. My kids and I had a blast creating something not only yummy, but fun, too.
You are going to LOVE this recipe! Whether you’re making it for a summer party for a crowd or an afternoon snack just for the family, this is a treat that you do not want to miss!

These sand pudding cups are so cute. The kids will love them. I’ve never made them pudding cups before, but I think it’s something they would really enjoy this summer.

These are adorable! I love to make dirt cake but this looks like a fun way to change it up. I love how you used gumballs for beach balls.
