     Got a craving for something chocolaty? I know I did the other night when I made these chocolate covered graham crackers. These are super easy and a great way to get the kid(s) involved with the decorating. Warning: They are really addicting.

Homemade Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers



My work space. It's better to have everything you need right there with you.


Ingredients & Items needed:

Package of graham crackers
Melting chocolate 
-I used Baker's chocolate that I bought at the store.
 -One box of 8 squares made 12.
Double boiler or you can improvise like I did here. 
-Sauce pan with half water & a metal bowl. 
-Caution: The bowl gets HOT.
Tongs
Cookie sheet lined with wax paper
Spoon
Sprinkles (if desired)

Melt chocolate while stirring frequently so as to not burn the chocolate. Once chocolate is melted I like to take the bowl off of the saucepan & water until it starts to harden up. It makes the bowl stabler and easier to work with.  
Fully cover graham crackers & let access drip off. Place onto wax paper lined cookie sheet & let the kid(s) have their fun decorating. 
This was the best part. Letting my son do the decorating. We picked out random sprinkles including crushed nuts & he had a great time. I just love this picture. 
And here are his finished masterpieces. Can you tell that he loves sprinkles? :) Kid after my own heart.  Once done place into the fridge so the chocolate hardens. 
Here's my bubba  enjoying one. His verdict: 2 chocolaty thumbs up. 
     These did not last long in our house with how addicting they are. Just writing this post makes me want to make a new batch of them. These would be perfect for any occasion or just to satisfy a sweet tooth. Instead of sprinkles you can harden them after dipping them & than use colored chocolates to decorate them with pictures or words. Perfect for Valentine's Day sweet treats if you are like me & hate the taste of conversation hearts.

Do you ♥ chocolate as much as we do?
Would you & yours have fun making these?
