Ok I might be a copy cat food crafter at times but this time I thought I would share our version of Family Fun’s Celebrate Back to School Treats. While the Chocboards are cute, they are called Chocboards because they are chocolate bars, I thought I would try something a little less sweet.
We mixed it up and eliminated chocolate bars for a healthier version. Read on to see how we made our Chalkboard treats a little healthier for our first day of school treat. I can’t wait to surprise the kids with these back to school treats, even if they have never seen a chalk board before.
Back to School Treat: Edible Chalkboard Treats
How to Make Graham cracker chalkboard treats:
- Chocolate Graham crackers or White Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers
- Pretzel Sticks
- White Frosting or Cream cheese softened and slightly sweetened
- Frosting bags and small frosting tip
I was inspired for our back to school treat in the grocery aisle looking for something dark that I could use as a chalkboard. Not that any of our children really know what a chalkboard is anymore. I should have made white board treats! I regress. Sorry.
Should I frost something with chocolate frosting? No that is just as bad as a chocolate bar. Can I find cookies pre-frosted in chocolate and are rectangle in shape? NO–still full of sugar.
HOW TO MAKE THESE EVEN HEALTHIER BACK TO SCHOOL TREATS
Then I came across Chocolate Grahams. Perfect despite the little holes. I was in a hurry so I purchased white frosting, not healthy but there is so little it is still better than the chocolate bars. I was going to make sweetened cream cheese, since my kids love cream cheese on their graham crackers.
FOR A WHITEBOARD: Use white chocolate covered graham crackers and then use chocolate frosting. Most kids these days might not even know what a blackboard is. I am all about old school…
Instead of caramels in the family fun version, I “glued” on pretzel sticks with my frosting.
Using a small frosting tip, I then wrote different fun sayings to celebrate our first day of school. These really would be great for any occasion at school but since I have two kids starting school today I could not resist. These chalkboard back to school treats are healthier versions so the kids can enjoy more than one.
