Ingredients

  • 1 Box Honey Maid Graham Crackers
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 block butter or margarine
  • Almond Slivers

Other Materials

  • 1 or 2 Cookie sheets lined with foil or parchment paper
  • Small Microwave Safe Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Butter Knife or Silicone Brush

Steps

  • Cover cookie sheet(s) with foil.
  • Break crackers into fours and line up in a single layer on cookie sheet
  • This step is for an adult to complete. Melt sugar and butter together on med heat. Boil for 3 minutes. Stir to avoid scalding.
  • Drizzle over crackers. Adult should drizzle and if child is old enough they can help to spread the "caramel" using a pastry brush or plastic knife.
  • Sprinkle almond slivers over each piece.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Sugar mixture should caramelize, bubble on each cracker. Do not over bake, crackers will scorch.

Note

  • Please ensure that your child does NOT have a nut allergy prior to this activity.
  • If your child is allergic to nuts you can substitute crushed pretzel pieces, mini chocolate chips.
  • Letting mixture cool just a little before "drizzling" makes it a little thicker making it easier to apply to cracker.
