The Best Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers!

If you’re looking for the best chocolate covered graham crackers, you’ve come to the right place! This recipe calls for mild white chocolate, coupled with honey graham crackers and festive sprinkles.

I decided to whip up a batch as a Valentine’s Day project. But with a change in sprinkles these could easily work for Christmas or even a wedding or birthday party. They’re versatile, inexpensive, and they come together very quickly.

Why Make Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers?

I’ve always loved chocolate covered graham crackers, so as I contemplated easy projects for the grandkids, this idea seemed perfect. I had left-over graham crackers from my S’Mores Kiss Cookies. And I had left-over almond bark from several projects, including my Chocolate-Covered Oreos. It just made sense to make use of what I had.

I did have to purchase one thing: a small container of Valentine’s sprinkles from WalMart for $1.98. This turned out to be a really economical project because I barely made a dent in the sprinkles and ended up with enough treats in the end to pass along to several loved ones.

Ingredients You’ll Need to Make my Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers

Ingredients for chocolate covered graham crackers

Here’s what you’re going to need to make these tasty treats. Trust me when I say it’s a short list! Chances are pretty good you’ve already got some of these things in your pantry. I’ll give a couple of suggestions for substitutions, just in case you need them.

  • white almond bark (9 squares) (could use milk chocolate bark or even chocolate chips)
  • 1 tbl coconut oil (not pictured, could use vegetable oil)
  • 1 sleeve graham crackers, plain
  • sprinkles

That’s it! Just four items total! I told you this was a quick and easy recipe!

NOTE: If you decide to color your chocolate, you must use an oil-based food coloring!

Prep Your Area Before Making the Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers!

Waxed paper work station

Here’s how I prepped my area. I got a long sheet of waxed paper and spread it out on my island. I knew those warm, delicious crackers would need a place to dry after being dunked in the gooey chocolate!

I made sure I had everything I would need once the chocolate melted. This included a rubber spatula and a fork to lift the cracker from the chocolate. I also had the sprinkles handy because I knew they would have to be applied while the chocolate was still wet.

How to Make my Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers

Open the sleeve of crackers and break them in half.

Set aside.

Separate the 9 squares of almond bark and place in a bowl. Add the tablespoon of oil.

Get the almond bark ready.

Place the bowl in the microwave and cook on high in 30-second increments, removing to stir between times. (Mine took about a minute and a half.)

Stir all lumps away.

Move your bowl to your work station. Have the graham crackers and sprinkles nearby.

Working one at a time, dip the crackers into the gooey chocolate. The crackers have a top and bottom. Do you best to keep them top-up, using the rubber spatula to spoon chocolate over the top, then lifting with the fork.

As you lift with the fork give the chocolate covered graham crackers a little swish back and forth to level out the chocolate on top and remove any excess.

Gently place the cookie on the waxed paper. Do 2-3 in a row and then pause to sprinkle them. You want to sprinkle while they’re still wet.

If the chocolate begins to harden, simply put it back in the microwave for a few seconds.

Leave the cookies to harden. This should take about half an hour, maybe a bit longer.

Once completely hardened, take a paring knife and trim away the excess chocolate around the edges, leaving a smooth product.

Store in an airtight container. There’s no need to refrigerate. They should keep for a week or more in a sealed container.

VARIATIONS ON CHOCOLATE COVERED GRAHAM CRACKERS

Instead of graham crackers, dip Teddy Grahams, Oreos, Speculoos/Biscoff cookies, or even shortbread cookies.

Instead of Valentine’s sprinkles, choose white or opal sanding sugar for wedding cookies, red and green for Christmas, or red, white, and blue for the 4th of July.

To give these chocolate covered graham crackers a fun outdoor twist, roast a marshmallow and place it on top. You’ll have a quick, easy S’More!

If you’re making these at Christmastime consider one teensy-tiny dot of peppermint extract to the chocolate mixture before dipping.

Making them for fall! Add maple extract and fall-colored sprinkles.
