  • 16.25 ounce chocolate cake mix
  • 16.25 ounce yellow cake mix
  • 5.1 ounce vanilla instant pudding mix or pistachio, one large box
  • 25 ounce vanilla sandwich cookies
  • Green food coloring
  • 15 small Tootsie Rolls
  • 1 new kitty litter pan
  • 1 new Pooper Scooper


  • Prepare cake mixes and bake according to directions (any size pans but 13×9 is easiest). Prepare pudding mix and chill until ready to assemble. Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but about 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup cookie crumbs, add a few drops green food coloring and mix using fingers until an even green color.
  • When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble into the new litter box. Toss with half the remaining cookie crumbs and the chilled pudding. Mix in just enough of the pudding to moisten it.
  • You don’t want it soggy. Combine gently.
  • Put three unwrapped Tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft and pliable. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Repeat with 3 more Tootsie rolls and bury in mixture. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top.
  • Scatter the green cookie crumbs lightly over the top. (This is supposed to look like the chlorophyll in kitty litter.) Heat 3 Tootsie Rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake; sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining Tootsie Rolls over the top; take one and heat until pliable, hang it over the side of the kitty litter box, sprinkling it lightly with cookie crumbs. Serve with new popper scooper.
