Every year my Grandma makes Graham Cracker Eggs for Easter. It has been a while since I’ve made them. When I was in Girl Scouts I made these and won a no-bake cookie contest! You could make them throughout the year, we just typically make them at Easter. Grandma had some last weekend when we had our early Easter celebration. I didn’t bring any back to SC, so on Saturday I decided that I needed to make them for our Easter celebration here.
I called Grandma to get the recipe, and she didn’t exactly have one. She gave me the ingredients and told me what to do. I was a little hesitant when I made them because I wanted to make them just like Grandma does! Here is the recipe I came up with. Grandma would disagree with the chocolate drizzle, she likes to completely dip hers in chocolate. When you make these feel free to add more or less of the ingredients, just make sure you add more or less milk. The milk is the secret to the recipe. It keeps everything stuck together! I hope you get the chance to make these, even if Easter is over! We have a few left in the refrigerator and I think they are even better a few days after being made!
You just need a few ingredients:
There aren’t any mixing pictures. My photographer was at work and my hands were way too messy to pick up the camera!
Graham Cracker Easter Eggs
- 1 box honey graham crackers
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup chopped walnuts, small pieces
- 1 Jar maraschino cherries, drained
- 1/2 of a small bag of sweetened coconut
- 1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk
- Milk Chocolate, melted
- Crush the graham crackers into crumbs.
- Chop the cherries into small pieces.
- Using hands, mix everything in a bowl.
- The mixture should stick together very nicely. Form into individual eggs. If the eggs don’t want to stay together, dampen your hand with water and then form the egg shape.
- Drizzle milk chocolate over the eggs. You can add sprinkles to the top to add a little color if you’d like.
- Chill until chocolate has hardened.
- Wrap individually in saran wrap.
- Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
- Serve & Enjoy!
