Chocolate Peanut Butter Graham Crackers and a S’more

chocolate peanut butter graham crackers made using Greek yogurt

 

With less than two weeks remaining of our summer vacation, I am quickly moving into back-to-school gear.  There are new lunchboxes, backpacks, clothes and shoes.

I haven’t yet gotten classroom supplies, but I am stocking  up on lunch box ideas.

Maybe it’s just me, but when I think of kids and snacks, graham crackers come to mind right away. As a kid, the cinnamon were always my favorite.  My kids prefer plain smothered in peanut butter…who can blame them, but smothered crackers do NOT fare well after being thrown into a locker or shoved in a cubby.  I make peanut butter grahams but then they want them smothered in nutella…again NOT school friendly.

This year, I found a solution.
