  1. I actually used to do a recipe like that and people LOVED it. But I didn’t use Graham Crunch cereals, I used Graham crumbs. Nice alternation!

    Who doesn’t love smores ? Should have known better than to ask my 9 year old son Evan to look at these GEMS. Response “Mom let’s go to Safeway and get all the ingredients”, thunderstorm right now ….will have to wait….tomorrow. Recipe looks delicious, thanks for posting.
