Moon Pie Pops for Earth Day

Just a friendly reminder that Earth Day is Monday, April 22 ๐Ÿ™‚

I will admit that I remember the first Earth Day in 1970 … yes, I am that old and still remember the seventies! I was in high school and decided that I would avoid using paper plates … my little contribution to the earth. ย I never imagined that we could own a car powered by natural gas or buy solar lights to stick in our flower beds ๐Ÿ˜‰

Moon pie earth day pops

I just thought of this idea today and wanted to share it immediately. ย I chuckled to myself as I thought of creating the earth on the moon … sorry, i’m dorky that way ;). I ran droveย to the store to buy Vanilla Moon Pies, there were none, so I bought banana ones. ย I do recommend vanilla because of the lighter color to work on.

This is what you will need …


  • Moon Pies
  • Piping gel & Royal blue food coloring
  • Green nonpareils
  • Blue sugar
  • sticks (I used wood coffee stir sticks)
  • craft paint brush (food use)

Color the gel blue or you can buy tubes of blue gel at most grocery stores. ย Use the brush and blue gel to paint the Moon Pie. ย Add some green sprinkles to create land masses or continents … mine are a little unrecognizable ;). Press the green sprinkles a little, tap off excess. ย Sprinkle blue sugar over the blue gel, creating water!


I really enjoy your comments!
