Easy Snack Grahams {with printable recipe card}

Looking for easy party food ideas? These Easy Snack Grahams are perfect for your next gathering. They're super easy to throw together and taste fantastic.

Easy Snack Grahams with Reese's Candy {and cute printable recipe card}
This recipe is adapted from the Reese's Snack Grahams recipe over at the Hershey's Kitchens site. I made it a bit easier for a lazy-loo like myself...and I also altered the some ingredients and amounts according to my family's tastes.

I made these for our super fun #SnackMadness family party that you can read about here! They are the perfect game-day snack...no matter what sport your group is watching!

Easy Snack Grahams with Reese's Candy {and cute printable recipe card}
For this recipe, you'll need:

  • 1/2 {family-sized} bag Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures
  • 20 graham cracker squares
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup sea-salted peanuts
  • 1 {4 oz.} box Reese's Pieces candies
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 2 teaspoons shortening

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Remove foil wrappers from your minis and pop them in the fridge to harden for about 20 minutes or so.

Slice your cups in half: it makes it easier to remove the wrapper if you leave it on during the slicing. It sounds weird...but, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Lay out your graham crackers on a cookie sheet. Top each cracker with four halves Reese's minis.

Pop this into the oven for six minutes. When you remove the tray, immediately use a butter knife or spatula to smash the cups and swirl them around as evenly as possible.

After the smashing fun, place marshmallows, peanuts 
and Reese's pieces candies on top of the melted minis.
Pop into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up.

You'll do this with both the chocolate chips and the peanut butter ones:
Melt one teaspoon of shortening with one type of chips {in a microwave for 20-30 seconds}. Stir to make sure all of the chips have melted.

Coat a spoon in the melted yumminess.

Drizzle it back and forth across the grahams. 
Repeat with the other flavor of chips. 
Cut and serve.

I like to store them in the refrigerator to prevent melting. But you won't need to store them too long...they don't last! They're so YUMMY!
