Yummy Snack!


Good morning! My two little guys love it when I give them something yummy afterschool. I decided to make something inspired from a new cookbook that my DD purchased for my birthday. It's called Silly Snacks. What a fun little book, it's all about fun snacks for kids. It's mostly geared toward recipes you can make with you kids. I love that they are interested in making stuff with me. My DD doesn't like anything too complicated which I admit sometimes I try to do that with her and she totally gets upset with me. We don't always see eye to eye in the kitchen. I'm trying to be a little more patient with her and make sure I'm well organized, this seems to help a lot. My son is pretty happy most of the time and he's willing to do anything as long as my kitchen aide or food processor or blender is involved, see a pattern here?? LOL!

I didn't follow the recipe in the book but instead used what I had on hand, I think chilling it will yield more positive results but my kiddos couldn't wait for that.

My version of Smores minus- the stick

Box of graham crackers (you only need a few)

marshmellow fluff
1/2 cup of mini choc. chips
1 tsp of oil optional
sprinkles to decorate

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or use a double boiler. Spread onto 2 crackers evenly leaving a little bit of an edge to allow for overflow. Then spread on marshmellow fluff. Put another cracker on top and smoosh together. Then spread more chocolate on top. Decorate with sprinkes as desired. Here's the big tip, refrigerate and let them get hard at this point. I used the marshmellow fluff instead of the mini marshmellows. I also omitted the stick. If you decide to use a popsicle stick then place it inside before you refrigerate.

These were quite messy but my guys gave 2 thumbs up, as you can see here!

Have a great day,


  1. YUM! Now that looks like a snack kids of all ages would like,even 43 yr. old ones, LOL!!!! Thanks for sharing:)

  2. The smiles and the thumbs up says it all!

  3. Those look so yummy! It is fun to treat our kids to fun things like that. I have a first day of school tradition snack. It isn't creative or silly though, it is just home made Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookies. We all look forward to sitting down around the table and sharing about our first day of school together each year. Thanks for sharing the fun recipe. God bless, Jamie

    We bought a book like that at the beginning of summer for our grandchildren for when they are here on Tuesdays and each Tuesday they make a new treat all by themselves...FUN ISN'T IT?
