It's Snack & Share Day at baby.sweets4ever's school today and here's what we whipped up for the occasion!  They're super simple and a fun nod to Earth Day.


Supplies
Muffin mix
Food coloring
Cupcake liners
Toothpick

Toppers:
Cardstock
Printer
Scissors
Toothpicks
Washi tape

Steps

Mix your batter per package instructions.  I use a box muffin mix for his school muffins.  It's free of common allergens, really yummy and has a hint of vanilla.  Perfect for the kiddos.

Separate the batter into two bowls.  Add blue food coloring to one bowl and green to the other.  Mix thoroughly.

Sporadically layer the two colors into your cupcake liners.  I use an ice cream scoop for one and a Ziploc bag, with the corner snipped, for the other.  The bag allows me to direct the color easily.


Once all of your liners are nearly full, use a toothpick to swirl the color around on the top of each muffin.  This creates the swirls of land and water on top of the muffins.


Bake 'em!

While your muffins are baking, create your toppers.  On a piece of white 8x11.5" cardstock, print these free toppers I created for you.  Click the link or image below for the full-size print.  Save and print it.  They are also attached at the bottom of this post. Smiley


You can use a 2" punch to remove them or just snip them out with scissors. Smiley

Use a small piece of washi or clear tape to attach your snazzy toppers to toothpicks.


World muffffins!




Stab them with the toppers. Smiley


Enjoy!

They are very adorable!

I must admit that the food colouring freaks me out a little... Not that we have any allergens, but even though..  Undecided But that is just me! Nothing to do with your muffins!!
And I so use food colouring now and then, but just a hint. Haha, I'm weird, I know  Tongue

Anyway, it's great that you made Earth Day muffins for school!  Cheesy Good work!!  Smiley

And not weird at all!  Just a different view on it that's totally okay!  I'm in the "all in moderation" school of thought on it.  I'm totally okay if he has one muffin, every couple of months, from a batch that had a few drops of coloring in it.  We eat real food otherwise.

I didn't think you were eating those on a daily bases, haha! But I don't know, blue, green, purple it just doesn't look like eatable to me!  Cheesy  Roll Eyes
I'm not only eating healthy food, we like our sweets, candy, cakes and so. And I know my kids would love these! 

They are still very cute! And you rock for making them for Earth Day!  Cheesy
- and you rock for sharing it with us -
