Homemade Graham Crackers

DIY Graham Crackers 

My list of foods I want to learn to make has grown tremendously.  The more I learn to make the more I want to learn to make.  I decided to learn to make graham cracks and marshmallows this summer then make s’mores with them.  When Lucy, Jamie and I had gotten together, I tried making marshmallows.  It was a failure.  I will try again of course.  But until then, I made graham crackers.  And we made s’mores with store bought marshmallows.   When I make the marshmallows, I will whip up some graham crackers and actually roast those marshmallows over a fire.

Lucy brought her kids over while her and our mom went grocery shopping.  While the kids played outside, I rolled out graham crackers and baked them.  Lucy bought some chocolate and so we had s’mores when they got back.  The graham crackers turned out beautifully.  And they taste amazing!  The kids had chocolate everywhere.  So I guess they liked them too.  Because I didn’t have a fire to roast the marshmallows over, I just stuck them under the broiler.  If you plan to do that, bake the graham crackers a little less.  The crackers got a little darker.


The crackers really were pretty easy to make too.  Just takes a little planning because you have to chill the dough.  I left my dough overnight and it worked just great.
