4th of July Snack


It’s the 4th, which means we need some sort of celebratory snack.

a package of marshmallows
2 packages of melting chocolate, in red & blue, or food coloring
a pack of red, white, and blue M&Ms
a package or more of graham crackers

Dip another marshmallow in the other color. Place on top of the first marshmallow.
I used my M&Ms to decorate the bottom of my “firecracker”.
