Sand Dessert Aka Vanilla "dirt Dessert"

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by jenjie

The first time I made this was for my son's Pirate theme birthday party. I made it in a casserole dish and put plastic pirate toys on top. It's become a family favorite, especially since my son doesn't like chocolate. My husband took this to work for a potluck. It disappeared quickly and he was asked to bring it again.
