Random Ramblings: SMORES MIX

SMORES MIX

Last year I made these cute baggies filled with what I call SMORES MIX.  I don't remember where I saw the idea, but I thought it was so cute.
I made them for Caleb's birthday to take to his class.
But I had a thought that they would be super cute with m&ms instead of chocolate chips, and if you used the valentine ones, they would add that pink and red color pop for the special day.  Fill a pretty jar up for a special teacher or something.  So many ideas.  I was going to do that for my boys teachers this year, but I made something else that I am going to share with you this week.

Well now on to how simple this is.
What you will need is this :

1 bag of mini marshmallows
1 bag of chocolate chips or m&m's 
1 box of golden graham cereal 


Pour all the stuff into a big bowl and mix.
I told you it was THAT simple.  :)


Then for his class treats, I just filled some small clear bags up and tied it with a ribbon.  I was out of ink at the time I think, or no we had just moved so it was still packed and I couldn't get to my printer yet.  So I just hand wrote some tags to go on the bags.  
I had a few ideas, and asked my facebook friends for some SMORE birthday quotes for some more ideas.  In the end I chose 

"thank you for making my birthday SMORE fun!"

You could google search it I am sure and come up with an idea for any occasion, just like if you used this idea for some Valentines Day treats.  

I did somehow find my scalloped  circle punch and used that for some added fun.  


See that, a simple thing to make, but will be so loved by the recipients. 

Heck you could even make this and just keep it in a tupperware for a snack to have on hand for the kids. 

please note:
Make sure though if you send it to school with the kids, that it isn't a hot day because the chocolate chips are sure to melt all over the place in that baggies.. Ask me how I know this :)
