With Earth Day right around the corner we are celebrating with our friends at Envirokidz by sharing two fantastic recipes and one amazing giveaway. As the winner of this giveaway you can celebrate the earth with your family and friends and enjoy fantastic treats – Chocolate Garden Cups and Koala Crisp™ Mini Cupcakes.
Chocolate Garden Cups
Adorable and fun to make with the family, these Chocolate Garden cups are perfect for kids parties or an afterschool snack. Topped with yummy organic Choco Chimps cereal, the deliciously simple, eggless chocolate pudding is light, easy to make, and not too sweet.
Easy Chocolate Milk Pudding:
1 ¾ cup chocolate milk, room temperature
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
2 tbsp. corn starch
1 tbsp. maple syrup or sweeten to taste
1/2 cup Choco Chimps Cereal, crushed
Sprig of mint
- Combine cocoa powder and corn starch in a small pot.
- Gradually stir in milk and whisk until smooth. Stir in maple syrup.
- Stirring constantly, bring to slow boil. Whisk for 1 minute until pudding thickens.
- Remove from heat and pour into small mason jars or jam jars, leaving space for topping.
- Chill for 1 hour until cooled and thickened.
- Top with crushed Choco Chimps Cereal and garnish with sprig of mint and popsicle stick.
Koala Crisp™ Mini Cupcakes

2 cups EnviroKidz Koala Crisp™ cereal
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup icing sugar
4 tsp cocoa powder

Grease a mini-muffin pan; set aside. In saucepan set over medium heat, bring butter, honey and brown rice syrup to boil. Boil for about 1 minute or until mixture is well combined and slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and cereal.
