Graham Cracker Sandwiches a.k.a. leftovers

Raise your right hand if you like leftovers … mine is up!

Raise your left hand if you try to remember to use leftovers before they look like a science experiment … both hands are up!

Now for the real test … have you ever used leftovers for dessert?

Does this look like leftovers or dessert?

This is what happens when you make cupcakes with pink buttercream icing for your niece’s birthday on Saturday … then make cupcakes with peanut butter icing for your friend’s birthday on Sunday … have both flavors leftover in the fridge and your hubby (a.k.a. The Peanut Butter Man) knows about them. 

By the way, if you can see chocolate on the corners … it is a boo boo … I used too small of a bowl for dipping.

This is not a “new idea” … my grandma would put icing on graham crackers for me when I was little … I did the same for my boys too.  However, we never dipped them in chocolate … that just seemed a little overboard … for some reason, it’s OK today!

This is so super simple and easy peasy … I’m not sure why I’m giving step-by-step directions 😉

This what you will need …

  • Graham Crackers (I love the square packs!)
  • Melted Chocolate (I used milk)
  • Sprinkles
  • Leftover icing in pastry bags (that you were too lazy to clean out from the weekend … but you did store it covered in the fridge)
  • Tray covered with wax or parchment paper

Using the covered tray, lay out graham crackers and pipe icing …

Place another graham cracker on top and pop them in the freezer for a few minutes to chill the icing …

Now dip the sandwiches in the melted chocolate (as far as you like), place on lined tray and sprinkle with sprinkles … then pop back in the fridge or freezer to firm up the chocolate …

The Peanut Butter Man said that this is the best thing I’ve ever made … but he says that about everything I make with peanut butter 🙂

  1. Brenda, I too was raised on frosting spread between graham crackers. I like your idea of using up the leftover frosting and dipping in chocolate. So many times I have that little bit left and throw it in the freezer, wondering what in the world will I do with it. Now I know!

    Keep writing…
