Don’t you just love receiving homemade holiday gifts? It’s even more fun to give a homemade gift, than it is to receive one. I’m pretty certain that my neighbors look forward to getting a tin filled of Christmas cookies each December. I have a fun diy gift idea for you that is sure to be enjoyed by family and friends. This Holiday S’mores Kit was is simple to assemble, and I think it turned out super cute!
This holiday s’mores kit is so simple to make and is something anyone could enjoy. You could even jot the recipe down on a card and accompany the directions with your s’mores kits.
Graham Crackers, broken in half (8 squares)
small (fun-size) milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 oz.)
small dish of water
Heat oven to 350°F. Place the graham squares in single layer on baking sheet. One at a time, dip marshmallows in water; gently shake off excess water and roll marshmallows in sprinkles. Place a marshmallow onto half of your graham squares. (You should have an equal number of marshmallow topped graham squares and plain graham squares.) Bake 2 to 3 min. or until marshmallows are puffed. Immediately place 1 chocolate piece on each plain graham square. Sandwich chocolate and marshmallow-topped squares to make s’mores; press together gently to secure. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll need to make the Holiday S’mores Kit:
square tin with lid
1 container of holiday sprinkles
small (fun-size) milk chocolate candy bars
holiday scrapbooking paper or a bit of gift wrap
a bit of bakers twine
scissors and tape
Cut the wrapping paper into rectangle pieces to wrap around the candy bars. Wrap and secure with a piece of tape. (Optionally, wrap the graham crackers in a piece of parchment paper.) Wrap the package of graham crackers in a bit of bakers twine. This is just to pretty it up, of course. Arrange the candy bars, graham crackers, marshmallows and sprinkles in the tin in a way that is pleasing to the eye.
I think this is such a fun gift to give to a family. It’s a something everyone can enjoy!
