Earth Day Potted Chocolate Dirt Pudding

April 22 will be the celebration of the 45th Earth Day! Celebrate with this simple and fun recipe. Make some home-made chocolate pudding or pudding from a box, crush some oreos on top, and stick a sprig of mint! I use either clay pots (make sure they're clean) or glass mason jars. Use paper cups if that's all you have. Talk about easy! And cute, too! You can swap out mint extract for vanilla if you want chocolate mint pudding!Very versatile.

Celebrate Earth Day! It's the only Earth we have!
