New Years Day:

Because it was completely sunny and 75 degrees outside I spent New Years day lounging on the beach watching the sun set, sipping champagne and eating cat litter cake.

Cat Litter Cake Recipe

1 box chocolate cake mix

1 box white cake mix

1 package white sandwich cookies

1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix

28 oz chunky peanut butter

green food coloring

12 or more tootsie rolls

1 new cat-litter box

1 new pooper scooper

1 new cat-litter box liner

Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan. Prepare pudding and chill. Crumble cookies in small batches in blender or food processor.

Add a few drops of food coloring to 1 cup of cookie crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar.

When cakes are at room temperature, crumble in a large bowl. Toss with half remaining cookie crumbs and enough pudding to make mixture moist but not soggy. Place liner in litter box and pour in half of mixture.

Melt peanut butter in microwave and pour over cake mix. Add remaining cake and pudding mix over peanut butter.

Unwrap tootsie rolls and heat in microwave. You can do as many as you like shaping them as you go. Bury some of the tootsie rolls and leave some on top hanging off side of litter box.

Sprinkle remaining cookie on top of cake. Place box on a sheet of newspaper and serve with scooper.


  1. remind me never to use your test kitchen.

  2. Sweetie - from my cousin Rheta at the trailer park:

    "Sweetie, you need to roll them tootsie rools in that crusty stuff and coat them in that crusty stuff because that's what my kitty "Itty Bitty" does with her poos."

  3. cute. I had a bit of cat litter cake at the beauty parlor a few years ago. No lie.

  4. how delightfully tasteful darling...
    My mouth is just watering at the very thought...

  5. I'm just going to go on to another blog now.

  7. I draw the line at toilet jell-o salad & I am allergic to cats anyway.....
