We Can Make a Difference!

We are students at MacArthur Elementary School in Galena Park, Texas. We are learning about nutrition and food safety. We washed our hands before starting. We included some healthy ingredients. We measured, and mixed, and shaped the cookies. We had a nutritious snack of healthy cookies and milk. We put the extra cookies in covered containers in the refrigerator. We cleaned everything with soap and water.

Choco-Crunch Cookies Recipe

1 cup raisins, chopped
1 cup mini-chocolate chips or large chips chopped in blender

3/4 cup peanut butter

Topping
1/2 cup powdered sugar or 1 cup coconut

Mix all ingredients together. Form into 1-inch balls by pressing the mixture firmly together with clean hands. Gently roll in either powdered sugar or coconut. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
