Countdown to Summer Party… Patriotic S’mores

Friends, we are only days away to the official start of summer!  Today I’ve got a fun twist to a summer classic… a Patriotic S’more!

Aren’t they cute!

To create the star cut-outs took a little playing around.  I found that spraying a mist of water on the graham cracker and then placing in the microwave for around 40 seconds seemed to work the best.

Then with my star cutter I gently pressed through the graham cracker.

If you feel it resisting as you press through, just put it back in the microwave for another 20 seconds.

Of course you could use any cookie cutter shape you’d like… the possibilities are endless.

What a fun idea for a summer birthday party or a 4th of July Party!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could definitely be one
    of the most beneficial in its field. Superb blog!

    Most of the games are indie titles but there are a few notable ‘normal’ games including the previously mentioned Final Fantasy III and Sonic 4 Episodes
    1 and 2. You have to first make sure you can connect multiplayer server.
    Next, you will need compatible drivers in order for it to
    work with your PC. recently posted…momtv.comMy Profile

    I never would have thought that graham crackers could have been punched through without crumbling. The star cutouts are too cute. Thanks so much for the tip, Maryann! ;)

    Be sure to stop by and take a peek at my “French-inpired” giveaway. There are only three more days to enter.
