Edible Mud

100_3934
We are learning about spring, gardening, worms and all things dirty. Because I'm not inclined to play with real worms, as my kids are… I found this recipe amongst my "thing to make" pile of papers. There was no measurements and nothing online like it. So the kids and I did a test run! Not only was it fun and interesting to make - but they tasted delicious! Here's the recipe for you. The printable recipe has pictures of the ingredients so little ones can follow along.

*Another version you may be familiar with is Dirt Cups - which is a pudding dessert, not a cookie like this.
*NOTE: This can be poured into bowls and eaten with a spoon while still slimy!
