Sand cake recipe

I am looking for a recipe that is similar to dirt cake but looks like sand. I tried and they had nothing. I saw it in a magazine or cookbook I was looking at but can't remember which one. Please help!!! It looked so deliciousl

  • 1 (5.25-oz.) package sugar cookies
    1 (10.75-oz.) frozen butter pound cake, thawed
    2 (3.9-oz.) packages chocolate instant pudding mix
    3 cups milk
    1 (16-oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    4 (1.4-oz.) chocolate-covered toffee candy bars, finely crushed
    Garnish: chocolate candy shells (available at most candy stores)

    1. Crumble cookies; process until finely crushed; set aside. (Cookies will resemble sand.) Cut pound cake into 1-inch cubes; set aside.

    2. Whisk together pudding mix and milk; add whipped topping and vanilla, whisking until smooth.

    3. Place half of cookie crumbs into a 3-quart sand pail; top with one-third of pudding mixture, half of cake and half of toffee bars; continue layering pudding, cake and toffee, ending with a layer of pudding. Top with remaining cookie crumbs. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes. Garnish with candy shells if desired.
