Fun & Easy Santa Grahams

Fun & Easy Santa Grahams - sixtimemommy.comBack in November I shared these adorable Bear Grahams so it was only natural to do something for Christmas too, right? Well here they are some Santa Grahams!

Not only are they super cute, fun for kids and delicious they are rather easy to make too.

We’ve started the countdown in our house. This morning as I opened my eyes I heard, “Mom! 3 more sleeps until Christmas eve!” which not only stressed me right out but also got my super excited. I love Christmas. I love seeing the looks on my kids faces as they open all their gifts, I love sitting around being lazy, for the afternoon watching movies. I love listening to them playing with all their gifts. My husband fussing with all that needs to be built and I love just being with them all not having to rush to go to someone else’s house, not having anyone come over here, and not having to live by a schedule for a few days.

If you are looking for something fun to add to your Christmas try some Santa Grahams! I’m sure your kids will love it, and if you are having any guests over they’d love them too. It could also be a fun activity for kids to do at a get together – build your own Santa Grahams!

santa1Ingredients

  • 12 oz white chocolate candy melts
  • mini marshmallows
  • graham cracker squares
  • red fruit leather (I used strawberry)
  • red M&M’s or red Skittles for Santa’s nose
  • small candy eyes
  • kitchen scissors
  • toothpick

Directions

  1. Pour the candy melts into a microwavable safe dish and heat in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring until fully melted.
  2. Using the kitchen scissors cut the mini marshmallows in half – you need about 9-10 mini marshmallows halves for each Santa.
  3. Use a small tablespoon to spread melted white chocolate over a graham cracker square.
  4. Give Santa a beard, using the 4-5 mini halves (see photo).
  5. Give the Santa a red nose and 2 eyes (see photo).
  6. Use the kitchen scissors to cut the fruit leather into a small triangle and place on his head.
  7. Use the toothpick to spread a little bit of melted chocolate onto the back of the marshmallow halves for Santa’s hat (see photo).
  8. Repeat the process with the desired amount of graham cracker squares.

  1. This would be a fun project during this Christmas holiday! My son is begging to make something and I didn’t have any good ideas so thank you for the idea.

  2. Ha, when I read Santa Grahams I thought of candy grams from high school :) these are just as much fun- and adorable too!

  3. That is super cute! I like that you included the fruit leather, it makes a great Santa hat. I can’t believe there is only three sleeps til Christmas. Man it’s gone by fast.

  4. These Santa grahams are so cute and look so yummy. I am going to have to do these with the kids for our family gathering on Christmas day. The kids will get a kick out of it. Thanks for sharing the idea.

  5. These are adorable and look super easy to make. This would be a great activity for the kiddos tomorrow while waiting for dinner.
