My daughter Sarah and I were talking the other day–we wanted something  tasty as a snack.  It was also hot and it would be better if it were something cool as well. Chocolatey would be great too. Ice cream sandwiches? Nope, none in the freezer.  What to do, what to do?

All of a sudden it hit me–“faux s’mores”. So simple to make, reasonable calorie wise (especially compared to ice cream), and it has chocolate!  You probably have most of it on hand–graham crackers (squares preferred), Cool Whip and Hazelnut spread ( “Nutella”).  Here’s how we make it:

Its easier if you work on a paper towel but a plate is ok too.    Lay out pairs of graham cracker squares.

Spread about a teaspoon of the Hazelnut spread on 1 of each pair of crackers.

Add about 2 -3 teaspoons of Cool Whip  on top of the Nutella/Hazelnut spread. You can use any version you like (regular, lite or fat free). We used the lite version for these. Top with the second graham cracker.

I normally pack 2 s’mores in a snack size bag and then put them in the freezer. They are ready to go in about an hour but  freeze well in you are making for the week (if they last that long!).

Enjoy this little treat anytime.
