1 12-ounce box Nilla Wafers
1 8-ounce container Cool Whip
2 3-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 4-ounce package vanilla or chocolate instant pudding mix
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Candy shells for decorating (available at most candy stores)
How to Make It
Make the "sand" by crushing the Nilla Wafers with a potato masher or in a food processor. With a mixer, combine the Cool Whip, cream cheese, pudding mix, milk, and vanilla. Layer a fifth of the crumbs in the bottom of a large, clean sand pail. Top with a third of the pudding mixture, then a layer of crumbs. Continue layering, ending with crumbs. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Decorate with the candy shells.
I made this for my daughter's beach themed party. I used chocolate pudding with white cake. I crushed up oreo cookies and added them to each layer. I assembled it in a beach pail and used the shovel as a scoop. It was adorable! Everyone loved it!!
