Day 4: Gingerbread Sammies
These babies are so cute and crunchy and because there's no chocolate, technically not a s'more. (But I certainly wouldn't want to discourage such a practice if you feel so inclined.)
Here's what you'll need.
12 sheets low fat cinnamon graham crackers
12 Gingerbread man Peeps
1/4 cup white candy coating, melted
Break your sheet of graham cracker in half and place one on a microwave safe dish and place a peep on top.
Microwave for 6 seconds. Yes, 6. You want him to gain weight not explode.
Place the other graham cracker on top and press slightly. When you're done microwaving them all, place them in the fridge for about 5 minutes to set.
Place them on a wire rack over a cookie sheet. This is gonna get messy! (aka- the fun part)
With a fork, dip it into your melted candy coating and drizzle/flick/go buck wild over the top of the graham crackers.
While the coating is still wet, add your sprinkles to the top and you're basically done!
If you want to give them away as favors or to wrap for school lunches, cut a little square of wax paper to place over the dried coating so it doesn't stick.
You can use decorative cling wrap or Press and Seal as I've used here with some pretty bakers twine.
Or with the press and seal you can twist the ends so they look like big ol' pieces of candy.
Or you could just grab one straight off of a pretty platter and dig in!
