Help kids practice their fractions while making yummy Chocolate-Peppermint Poke Cake.

Half a whole lot of fun making a deliciously ooey-gooey Chocolate-Peppermint Poke Cake with your child. It’s an easy, hands-on way to see exactly how fractions work and why they’re important to understand. Plus, having a treat at the end is twice as nice!

Teachable Moments

Turn the fraction of your groceries featuring Box Tops into a higher number by keeping a list of all Box Tops products on the refrigerator or inside a cabinet door.

Work through doubling fractions by doubling the recipe. Have your child do the math using paper, then help put their answers to the test. To see that a doubling a half-cup equals one cup, fill the half-cup measuring cup twice and pour into the one-cup cup. Your child will see that two half-cups go into making one cup.

Instead of using the exact measuring cups and spoons called for, propose a challenge to your child: make the recipe using only a quarter-cup, a third-cup, and a quarter-teaspoon to measure the ingredients.

Teachable Moments

Using the printed product guide, have kids answer these questions:


1. What fraction of the BAKING - Desserts includes the word ‘mix’?


2. What fraction of the BAKING - Breads, Muffins and Rolls are Betty Crocker®?


3. When you add the fraction from question one to the fraction from question two, what is the result?
Answer: one

Friendly Reminders

• Always start by clipping Box Tops

• Grease pan before mixing

• Save time by using a garbage bowl

• Don’t eat batter containing raw eggs

• Remember to set a timer
