Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day everyone. I wanted to make a little treat for my husband to take to his scouts (he is a webelos leader) and since today is Earth Day, I thought this would be perfect. It was really quick and easy and the kids LOVED it. I am sure you have all had this before, or know the recipe, but just in case, or just as a reminder, here it is:

2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding
1 box of instant vanilla pudding
small clear plastic cups
oreo cookies
gummy worm/bugs/frogs (whatever you like)
whipped cream (optional)

Crush the oreo cookies (I used my magic bullet and made them really fine). Mix up the vanilla and chocolate puddings according to the package directions. Now you are supposed to mix them with whipped cream, but I forgot to get that at the store, so I just used the pudding as is, and it worked fine. Now this is how I did it, but you can creatively come up with whatever layering or what not you want. I put one spoonful of crushed oreos in the bottom of each cup, then one spoonful of vanilla, then a spoonful of oreos again, then a a couple spoonfuls of chocolate pudding (till it's almost full), then top it off with more crushed oreos and stick some gummy worms on top.

...and to really make them Earth Day appropriate, make little 'Happy Earth Day' flags with toothpicks.
