Chocolate Graham Crackers

Ever wanted a chocolatey treat but were out of the ingredients to make a cookie?  You could just let the kids eat the chocolate chips out of the bag....Or you could make a yummy treat.  I thought up this one all on my own and its become a huge hit here at the house.  Feel free to make it for your own crew and maybe even switch it up a bit. 

Chocolate Graham Crackers

Bakers Chocolate chips or squares
Graham Crackers
Nuts - optional
Peanut Butter - optional

1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
2. Once melted pour the chocolate over the graham crackers and place on a wax lined cookie tray.  You can also spread some peanut butter on the graham crackers before you put the chocolate on. 
3. Sprinkle on the crushed nuts if you fancy them.  I just take walnuts and cut them into tiny itty bitty pieces.  But you can use pecans or peanuts or whatever you like...if you like any at all.
Store the leftover in a ziplock baggie or plastic container or glass or whatever.  I know people don't like plastic, use whats you got!  This will save you from doing it everytime your kids want a treat.  Also good for brownies, sprinkling on top of cake...adding to peanut butter so you don't have to buy a special one just cause one person in your family likes the chunky kind...cough...dh...cough. 

4. Once done place in the fridge to let the chocolate harden back up.  Takes about an hour. 

I prefer the peanut butter ones myself.  I haven't tried it with any Jams or anything fancy like almond butter or soynut butter but feel free to experiment.
