My thoughts and prayers are with those in Oklahoma today. A good friend is from Oklahoma City and most of her family is there. My brother is also out there doing summer sales. We have heard from him and are glad that he is okay. My heart aches for the families and those affected by the tornadoes. We wish we could do more, but please know that we are thinking of you during this time.
Shopping trips to the health food store with my Mom as a kid were b-o-r-i-n-g. Grocery shopping seemed to take forever. And I swear my Mom said “no” to every good looking food I wanted to put in the cart. It was like she was trying to sabotage my childhood by not buying six dollar boxes of cereal that actually LOOKED like the Lucky Charms my friends got to eat. Never mind the price. I just wanted to be like other kids. I couldn’t even spell Amaranath back then let alone say it. But Amaranath cereal went into the cart and expensive all natural look a like Lucky Charms? Not allowed in the cart.
It seemed so unfair back then. It seemed like we never got any normal food. But then after we packed up the car my Mom would reveal a surprise. Sometimes it was M&M look a likes and other times it was chocolate chip graham crackers. Those Barbara’s Snackimals were by far my favorite.
Now when I drag my kids through the health food stores, I surprise them with a package of their favorite crackers.
These homemade crackers were devoured quickly in our house and I’m sure they will have the same fate in yours! They taste like a chocolate covered graham cracker. Or a chocolate graham cracker. Or chocolate chip cookies. I’m really not sure how to describe them except that every little bite gives you the flavor of chocolate chip cookies, graham crackers, and chocolate. They are absolutely delicious. Grab a glass of milk and start dunking. This is the perfect after school snack for grownups and kids!
