    This did remind me of the dirt that I use to make for my kids. They still ask for that. This is a frozen alternative to that. I didn't have time for the carrot decoration, which was fine. I will be making this again and again. So easy!

    Saw this recipe and just had to make it for our granddaughter and her two boys while they're here visiting. Everybody chipped in with the crushing, blending and decorating. This is quick, easy and fun from the first crushed cookie to the very last bite! K&J in LV
