Earth Day Treats {Version 2}.


Cupcakes in flower pots?
I say WHY NOT!

Here's a look at the treats I brought into Grant's class today...



*Make sure and rinse your pots with soap and water before beginning.

1. Place half of an oreo in the bottom of each pot to cover up the hole.

2.  Mix a regular cake mix {chocolate!} and bake in pot.

I placed all of my pots once they were filled, on a baking sheet and cooked them in the oven on that.
You'll need to bake these about 10-15 min. longer than the box calls for since they are so deep.

3. Let cool and then frost with chocolate frosting.


Add crushed Oreos for the 'dirt' and chocolate coated candy rocks.


A gummy frog {or gummy worm!} adds a nice touch too!

I placed green paper straws into the middle of my cupcakes and then placed my artificial flower stems right down the middle of those so the flowers stood up better.


London LOVED the way these looked on our kitchen counter and was so disappointed when I had to take them up to the school.

Happy Earth Day!
