Earth Day Recipe


Earth Day History and Recipe!





           One awesome holiday coming up soon is Earth Day. Many people are unaware of how Earth day originated and what its goal is.

            Earth Day is a day that is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's natural environment. The name and concept of Earth Day was allegedly pioneered by John McConnell in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco. The first Proclamation of Earth Day was by San Francisco. Earth Day was first observed in San Francisco and other cities on March 21, 1970, the first day of Spring. This year it will be observed on April 22, 2012. Here is a great Earth Day (Earth-inspired!) recipe that you can use the promote the day to your family!

Mudpie Cookies

(Serves about 12)

Ingredients:

·         2 cups organic cane juice sugar
·         2 tablespoons organic cocoa
·         1/2 cup milk
·         1/2 cup butter
·         1/2 cup peanut butter
·         2 cups oatmeal
·         1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

Directions:

1.    Mix the sugar and the cocoa together in a bowl.
2.    Stir in the milk. Have a grownup put the mixture in a pot, add the butter, and put it on the stove to cook. It needs to come to a full boil and cook that way for two minutes. The grownup should keep stirring the mixture the whole time it cooks so that it won't burn.
3.    The grownup needs to take the mixture off of the stove and mix the rest of the ingredients with the cooked part of the recipe.
4.    Then the mixture needs to be dipped, by spoonfuls, on to the waxed paper and allowed to cool.

Bone Appétit!
