Smores, Lighter Way to Satisfy a SweetTooth
Who doesn’t love a smore? My kids ask for them constantly but we don’t make them very often. We usually do them over the fire pit maybe a couple times each summer, but they could eat them every day if I would let them! Not to mention, they aren’t exactly the healthiest snack in the world. Sometimes you just need a treat though, right? These satisfy the craving, but the serving sizes are much smaller, and they are lighter than the original. If you are craving the classic smore taste of summer, give these a try!
You will need:
chocolate chips or chocolate candy coating
Begin by crushing up a couple of graham crackers. You don’t need very many, I used 3 and had a lot of crumbs left over. Once they are crushed, place the crumbs in a small, shallow bowl that will be easy to dip in.
Melt some chocolate. I started with 2 squares and got about 15 marshmallows out of it. Holding the end of your marshmallow, dip the other end into the chocolate. Let it drip off into your bowl.
Then quickly dip it into your graham cracker crumbs. Place it chocolate side up on wax paper to cool. The chocolate will harden.
There you have it! These would make great finger foods for a party or picnic, or use them as a party favor in a cute vellum bag! For now, my kids are just eating them. Store them in an airtight container and have them on hand when you have a craving or want to indulge a sweet tooth without the guilt!

Birthday parties stress me out… my kids think they are the most magical day. I don’t want to let them down but at the same time I am only 1 persons and I am NOT Martha Stewart. But I have found if I just do a few little things they make a BIG impression on the kids. For example I made Rainbow Ice Cream Pops for the kids. You would think I was handing them a season pass to Disney Land, their eyes lite up and their smile was from ear to ear.
Little did they know that these Rainbow Ice Cream Pops are really just an ice cream sandwich with Nerds on them, with a stick in the ends. SHHHH don’t tell the kids
Unwrap the ice cream sandwich, roll it in the Nerds stick a sucker stick in the end and your DONE. Whole thing takes about 3o seconds.
Place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and put them back in the freezer. This will give them a chance to harden back up, take them out right before you serve them to your guests.
You could also do this with colored sprinkles, but some how the Nerds are just more fun (or at least that is what my kids tell me ). Simple project that will make a BIG impact at your next party. Good luck
