Countdown to Summer Party… Patriotic S’mores

Friends, we are only days away to the official start of summer!  Today I’ve got a fun twist to a summer classic… a Patriotic S’more!

Aren’t they cute!

To create the star cut-outs took a little playing around.  I found that spraying a mist of water on the graham cracker and then placing in the microwave for around 40 seconds seemed to work the best.

Then with my star cutter I gently pressed through the graham cracker.

If you feel it resisting as you press through, just put it back in the microwave for another 20 seconds.

Of course you could use any cookie cutter shape you’d like… the possibilities are endless.

What a fun idea for a summer birthday party or a 4th of July Party!
