Even though graham crackers and the cream cheese has some sugar in it, the other ingredients are sugar-free, which makes it more healthy. The idea is cutting the amount of sugar you put in your recipe.



Soften Cream Cheese and Cool Whip: Make Sure Cream Cheese and Cool Whip are softened to room temperature before making.

Crush up Graham Crackers: Crush up two whole packages of graham crackers in a plastic bag with a rolling pin or use your hands until you have crumbs.

Mix Pudding Mixture: Dump 2 packages of pudding mixture and 4 cups of Milk in Medium-sized bowl and whisk together for 2 minutes until you get a thick consistency.

Mix Rest of Ingredients: Beat in cream cheese and cool whip with a mixer until everything is mixed together.

Start Filling Sand Bucket: Start filling the sand bucket with pudding first, then layering the pudding with crushed graham crackers. Do that switching back and forth between pudding mixture and crushed graham crackers until the bucket is almost full.

Place in some Gummy Worms: Finally, when you get your last layer in of graham crackers on the top, place in some gummy worms.

Place Shovel in Bucket: Place the small sand shovel half-way in the bucket, and you’re ready to serve and eat!


Instead of using Organic Graham Crackers, you can use sugar-free vanilla wafers. You can also use a regular container if you don’t want to use a sand bucket, this is mostly just for decoration.
