I first made these for my son's cub scout den while learning about traffic safety. We always had a snack at some point during the meeting and I thought sticking with the theme would enhance the learning experience. The kids loved them and luckily I had made extra's because they were asking for seconds!
These graham crackers were so simple to make that I tried it again but let my kids create their own! I've seen variations where some folks have used white frosting and some used popsicle sticks while others did not. Initially, I chose to go with chocolate frosting, m&m's and yellow colored popsicle sticks. However, something new has hit the market or at least it's new to me, Whips by Jif. It's basically whipped peanut butter. Since this traffic light recipe involves graham crackers and Jif makes one in a s'mores flavor I grabbed a tub of s'mores and whipped peanut butter...score!
Simply crack the graham cracker in half twice taking the smaller portion of the graham cracker, spread some Whips or frosting, add the m&m's and voila you have a traffic light! To keep the cracker adhered to the popsicle stick I just stuck some Whips or frosting to the back of the graham cracker and it stuck perfectly to the popsicle stick!
My kids had fun making their own and enjoying them afterwards!
They both gave this treat a 2 thumbs up!
