My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Valentine Graham Cracker Cookie Sticks

Valentine Graham Cracker Cookie Sticks

I am trying to get my boys in the kitchen more.  Even though it's not always picture perfect, I feel like they need to learn basic skills from early on.  And it's up to me to teach them!  With their ages ranging from 8 to 3 I try to gage age appropriate recipes for them.

With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought it would be fun for my littlest to make a little treat he could share with his friend who was coming over for a playdate.

He had so much fun dipping each graham cracker into the melted frosting and then finishing them with sprinkles.  Once they set up they were almost fudge like and tasted really similar to those frosted circus animal cookies.  

I found these micro heart sprinkles at my local grocery store this season.  They are adorable!  You really can use any Valentine sprinkles you have on hand.

The only prep I did ahead of time was breaking the graham crackers into smaller rectangles.  If you find that they are not breaking straight, use a serrated knife to gently cut them down the perforated lines.
Did you know you could melt store bought frosting and melt it a whole lot easier than white chocolate?!  Find the how to at mynameissnickerdoodle.com
