Woohoo!! February, my favorite month of the year is here!
February is my favorite month for lots of reasons. Many fun events take place this month like Valentine's Day, my birthday, my son Keiran's birthday, my mother-in-law's birthday, it's the shortest month of the year, the weather is still cool and there’s always lots of chocolates to enjoy. Let's just say, we are busy and partying all month long!
With all these events going on during the month, I tend to scramble for Valentine's Day gram ideas. I don't really like buying the cheesy card grams from the store. I always try to do something homemade and special for my boys to take to school and pass out to their friends.
...But I won't be scrambling this year! I know exactly what I'm making - S'mores Grams!
These are super easy and quick to make. Three ingredients, five minutes and cute packaging materials is all you need.
Crack each graham cracker into squares and lay them out onto a piece of parchment paper.
Heat the chocolate in the microwave according to directions on the packaging. Pour melted chocolate into plastic squeeze bottle.
Squeeze a small dot of chocolate onto the center of each cracker and attach the HeartMallow marshmallows.
Drizzle chocolate diagonally over the grams by moving your hand back and forth quickly while squeezing the bottle.
Set aside grams until the chocolate is completely set.
Once chocolate is set, you may package them.
I used a 4"x9"x2" cellophane bag, a 4" paper doily, a 7" ribbon, a 4"x4" piece of scrapbook paper and a stapler to package my grams. If you don't have these materials handy, don't worry you can also use a zip top plastic bag and a cute printed paper tag stapled on top instead or whatever else you'd like.
