Graham Cracker Christmas Trees

Graham Cracker Christmas Trees

Busy? Less than a  couple of weeks until Christmas. My house is piling up with gifts that need to be wrapped and to-do lists. Though all the chaos, it's great to have wholesome snack options on hand for the kiddos (and adults too!). Today, I am sharing a fun and simple idea to include Honey Maid Graham Crackers as a fun and festive treat. This is a post in partnership with Honey Maid, all opinions are my own.

Not that my son really needs a special invitation to eat Honey Maid Graham Crackers as a snack. He's a hungry teen, who will gladly munch on them straight from the box. Hook him up with a tall glass of milk and he's a happy dude.  Seriously.snack

To make something a little extra fun, I visited the Honey Maid website to check out some recipe ideas. I wanted to do something extra fun and festive. I stumbled on these adorable Graham Cracker Christmas Trees. Not only were they unbelievably cute, but they seemed like a fun way to let kids create their own treat and have a little fun!

Here's what you'll need to make these:

For each tree:  One full length Graham Cracker, Green Decorating Icing & Small Red Candies

Break the full size graham cracker in half and then "saw" each half diagonally  with a knife. (Of course best if an adult does this part!).

Should look like this:

Next, pipe a small amount of icing to the uncut side of each triangle to hold them together. I did this in two parts and then repeated to get those to "half" trees to stick together. Then, I let the icing firm up for about 10-15 minutes. Lastly, ice the "edges" of the tree and press your candy "ornaments" into it. Lastly, I added one red candy to the top by adding another pinch of icing. Let dry completely. Voila! So easy, now you have a fun treat! Let the kids have at it!
