I’m sharing our S’mores Snack Mix with Goldfish® Grahams as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #GoldfishTales
If you ask my kids, they will tell you that snack time doesn’t come often enough in our house. They are rapidly growing boys that seem to be hungry every waking moment. We will be in the middle of an activity, out on a walk, or just finishing up a project, when hunger strikes them out of nowhere like they haven’t eaten in days.
They will walk over the pantry, stare in for a minute, and then start asking if they can have different things. Each time they start by trying to get handfuls of marshmallows or chocolate chips. After countless “Not this time” replies from me, one day we decided to start making mixes with them. It is a great way for them to pick out more than one snack food item and make their own treat. The excitement these kids get from making anything on their own is amazing.
Since we incorporate as much ‘do-it-yourself’ activities as we can each day, before we get started with the snack mix, sometimes we make treat holders. Coloring is always a part of our day, so I created a small snack cone template for them to design their own snack holders.
Once they color the template, I let my oldest cut them out, I formed the cone, and they tape it together. You can also trace the template on card-stock or scrapbook paper for more designs.
S’mores Snack Mix Recipe
For the snack mix, I gathered their favorite ingredients: mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and Honey Goldfish Grahams. The rest I left to the boys. The independence they achieve while making their treat seems to make their day. They brag about it for days, or even longer.
Once the boys filled their snack cones, I put the rest in a large bag for them to enjoy again another day. It is definitely a snack that will fit into a summer party soon! The Goldfish Grahams alone are a great snack that the kids love to eat and play with.
