Recipe by ElizabethKnicely

This is a recipe I shared last summer, but it was a big hit so I am sharing it here 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 last Saturday after the Walk and it was quickly gobbled up! My daughter asked if I would make it again the next day. I'm pretty sure she single handedly ate half the pail herself. ;) Seriously though, this was very quick & easy dessert to put together with a LOT of wow factor included. This is a super quick & easy summer time dessert that is sure to be the talk of the party!
