A Cute Fun Snack!

Can you guess how many Teddy grahams are in the picture? Only kidding. I think I have been reading too many I spy books with my children.

This week I went into my son’s kindergarten class to do a little creative cooking demonstration. School is winding down so the children and some parents are doing little presentations on creative expression. I am really challenged when it comes to art and music so it is a good thing I can cook. I decided to make a trail mix based on smores which involved Teddy grahams. I don’t know if making a snack mix is actually cooking but to five and six year olds, it is. The kids loved it. I actually didn’t mind eating it myself. This would also be good to serve at a kids party or maybe even a movie night. I served the mix in little Teddy Bear cups and it made it even more enjoyable for the children.

Teddy Smores Snack Mix

1 box(10 oz) Teddy Grahams
12 oz bag chocolate chips
6 oz salted peanuts
3 cups mini marshmallows

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure all the ingredients are distributed evenly.

Even though I’m not a kid anymore (oh shame) I would sure enjoy that cute snack!

Mmmmmm…. I forgot how much I love Teddy Grahams. I think that my husband would go for this just as much as the kindergarten class did. He loves to keep things like trail mix in his office. Thanks!
