Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers

     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.
Cookie sheet lined with wax paper
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?
