Let them eat dirt! Well, not exactly. These are so tasty and since they’re also very simple, it’s a great way to occupy kids for a while. If you’re really ambitious you can use little sand pales or plant pots instead of cups. The best part: you can make a reduced fat or sugar free version. Use fat free or sugar free pudding and cool whip and buy reduced fat or sugar free cookies.
This recipe is for 1 batch or either Sand Cups or Dirt Cups
1 package of prepared pudding (Vanilla or Banana / Chocolate or Fudge)
1 package of cookies finely crushed (Vanilla Wafers / Oreos)
