KUDOS® Beach Pail
- 1 box KUDOS® Milk Chocolate Granola Bars Peanut Butter, unwrapped
- 1 C. vanilla wafers
- 1 bag DOVE® PROMISES® Milk Chocolate, unwrapped
- 1 box ice cream wafer cups (available in grocery store)
- 1 container vanilla frosting
- Food coloring — yellow, red, blue and green
- 4 snack packs vanilla or chocolate pudding, or 1 box instant chocolate pudding
- 1 bag STARBURST® Fruit Chews, unwrapped
Process the KUDOS® Bars with the vanilla wafers in a food processor until grainy. (Or finely chop by hand.) Set aside. Melt the DOVE® PROMISES® Milk Chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stir occasionally until melted. Spoon 2 to 3 Tbs. into each ice cream wafer C. and spread it evenly around the bottom and sides with the back of a spoon. Put in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to set. To frost the outside of the "pails", tint the vanilla frosting with food coloring in a bold color. Spread on the outside of the wafer C., completely covering them. Return to the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up. Fill the wafer C. with layers of pudding and KUDOS® mixture, finishing with 2 Tbs. of KUDOS® mixture. Set aside. To make the shovels: Make 12 groups of 4 STARBURST® Fruit Chews (each group should contain 4 STARBURST® Fruit Chews of the same color). Microwave 3 groups at a time for 5 seconds each, to soften. Mold these groups into shovels. To make the pail handles: Microwave 12 randomly colored STARBURST® Fruit Chews for 5 seconds. Mold them into 6-inch strands and let them firm in an arch shape. To decorate the pails: Dab the edges of the handles with the icing and place them on the top of each pail. Place the shovels decoratively next to the pails. Return to the refrigerator until ready to serve. Optional: Use ice cream instead of pudding. Let the ice cream soften at room temperature until you can easily scoop it into the wafer C. Once filled, keep pails frozen until serving.
Makes 12 pails.
