Easter S’mores


Incase you missed us on Fox 5 Morning News on Wednesday we wanted to share these adorable treats! We love to make treats to give out in my son’s class for pretty much any holiday, and I wanted to share this super cute idea I found for Easter treats.

It is a little play on smores, items needed:  Graham crackers (will use two per child) 1 tiny chocolate bar (last year we used chocolate bunnies) and 1 marshmallow peep (in whatever color you choose)

To make use place two graham crackers, 1 tiny chocolate bar, and a marshmallow peep inside a cute plastic bag that you can see through.  Add a cute note saying to use as a smore, then write a note from your child and include it inside.

Enjoy!  For another fun Easter treat idea click here.
