Halloween treat

I found this cute Halloween treat idea (Pinterest, anyone??? LOVE IT!) and thought it would be fun to do with Owen.

Once Vivian was pleasantly occupied with some Cheerios, we gathering our ingredients:
Lollipop sticks (from craft store's cake decorating section), small clear treat bags and silver ties, green ribbon (I didn't have enough so ended up having to use my green/yellow ribbon), graham crackers, orange colored (white chocolate) candy wafer melts, and big marshmallows.

Then, I melted the candy melts in the microwave while Owen hammered the graham crackers into tiny pieces. He found this to be a very fun job, as probably any little boy would.

The next step was to stick a lollipop stick in each marshmallow, dip it in the melted orange chocolate to cover it, then dip the top of it in crushed graham crackers. Owen did such a great job helping me!

We put them on a plate so that the chocolate could harden in the fridge. After 10 minutes we took them out and put them into the little clear bags, tied with a silver twist tie, and then a green ribbon. This is a picture of a few of them. We made about 12 total, I think. They came out pretty good for our first holiday-themed treat activity. They taste a little like s'mores. :)
