We are working on our Geology pin for Webelos and oneof my parents came
across these recipes. I thought that they were especially good for
Scouts, since we all LOVE to eat! She says that the Igneous Rocks are
especially yummy - very much like fudge. Enjoy!
Edible Rock Recipes:
1 sm. can (6 oz) evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 1/4 cups tiny marshmallows
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
Grease an 8 x 8 or 9x9 inch pan. Combine evaporated milk with sugar and
salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring for
5-9 minutes. (This is the melted rock part)
Remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients and stir gently (mixture of
Pour into prepared pan. Let cool/refrigerate (the cooling down and
hardening into rock)
1 pan (8x8) makes 30 1-inch squares.
Pancake batter mix - prepare as directed on package
Assorted foods that melt and some that don't: examples are raisins,
chocolate chips, peanuts, marshmallows, coconut
Allow students to pour the pancake batter on the griddle and add whichever
ingredients they desire. After flipping the pancake, allow students to
press down the pancake with the turner. (This simulates how heat and
pressure are needed to make metamorphic rock). When done cooking, allow
students to cut open and examine how some of the ingredients melted and
some became imbedded in the pancake, just like metamorphic rocks.
Naturally, everyone gets to eat their rocks!
