Earth Day Snack

on April 22, 2013

For Earth Day I made these little dirt cup snacks for both of my kids’ classmates & teachers.

It really is an easy, fun & delicious snack – however, I totally underestimated how much time I would need to put them together. Had I made enough pudding and crushed enough Oreo’s before I got started would have made the process a little quicker.

These ones were for my daughters classroom..

I made enough for both classrooms – 60 cups of dirt dessert!!

My daughter and I hot glued flowers & leaves to green spoons. Super easy! They turned out very pretty.

My daughter wanted to make a special butterfly spoon for her teacher. :)

I layered the cups with crumbled brownie, added some chocolate pudding, crushed Oreo’s for the dirt look and of course, what would a cup of dirt be without adding some gummy worms?!  

Our kids thought they looked awesome and couldn’t wait to enjoy them during snack time at school.

When I dropped the snacks off this morning to their classrooms, the students eyes lit up! Although, I did ask them to close their eyes for a second while I attempted to embarrass my son and kiss him on the cheek. He quickly dropped to the floor to avoid the kiss. LOL

These are the ones for my sons classmates & teacher 😀

Generally, the mid morning school snack is supposed to be a healthy one but their teachers made an exception for the Earth Day celebration. Besides, there is a lot of milk in the pudding right? Oh, and the brownies have eggs! 😉

Happy Earth Day to you!

    How much of each ingredient did you buy to make enough for 60?

    • Hello, I don’t remember how much I purchased. I do remember running out of pudding and needing to buy more. One thing to keep in mind is if you’re making this for a classroom snack…keep it snack size. Doesn’t need to be a full serving. Sorry I wasn’t more help. 🙂
