Teddy Graham Santas

With the Holidays approaching,
National Adoption Day on November 21st couldn't come at a better time!
Our family has been blessed with two.
My husband's brother and sister have both adopted children
and we couldn't even fathom our family without them.

Last week, I had the pleasure of spending the day with my 5 year old nephew Dash,
and what a treat it was.
It has been awhile since I spent the day with a pre-schooler
but I knew I needed a fun activity to keep him occupied.
I was excited because he's a kid after my own heart - artistic, curious and eager.
In minutes with just a few ingredients,
Dash and I had created a new family tradition...
Teddy Graham Santas.

With a new box of Honey Maid Teddy Grahams
and supplies from my junk baking supply drawer,
we got to work.
The fun shaped crackers really unlocked our imaginations.  
We used Cinnamon for these but they are available in six delicious flavors, 
including honey, chocolatey chip and the new Teddy Birthday Cake flavor.

We dressed our Teddy Graham Santas with red tubed icing...

and did some eating...

then added white icing beards, black icing boots, used edible markers to accent his eyes
and topped him off with a gumdrop hat (cut in half through the middle).

Ho, Ho, Ho
Oh What Fun!

We then dressed some of the Teddys to go out in the snow with hats, sweaters and mittens...

and served them with a little milk.

and Dash made his infamous,
whipped cream snowman...

which didn't work so well but tasted amazing!

I love how our family has evolved over the years through
marriages, births and 2 very special adoptions.
It is wonderful to create memories and keep traditions alive.
Honey Maid recognizes and celebrates that while the makeup and day-to-day lives of families have evolved, the idea and importance of wholesome family connections remains the same. 
From their classic grahams to Teddy Grahams, Honey Maid’s wholesome products are made with whole grains and real honey, without high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, and are wholesome snacks families can agree on for any occasion.
I am thrilled to add our Teddy Graham Santas to The Murphy Family Christmas Tradition List.
