Why Don't You...Make a Treat from Extra Frosting?

Growing up, my mom never wasted extra cake frosting. She always used it to make a little treat for us. I remember as a child, loving the soft graham cracker and sweet frosting confections...a rare treat.

So why don't you...Spread your extra frosting between graham crackers:



Wrap in foil overnight:



And enjoy!



Yum!

  1. I can't believe there is another person out there who grew up on these little treats. I thought we were the only ones who ate frosting sandwiches. ;) Although we had no patience, so we usually ate them immediately after spreading the frosting on.

    When I was single, I used to eat graham crackers with choco frosting for breakfast.

  4. How nice, now that I just discovered the joys of frosting!

    On my blog you asked how we usually frost cupcakes - well, I´m not sure if that´s even called frosting, or icing - we either pour melted chocolate over the cupcakes, (and add sprinkles on top), or we pour a mixture of lemon juice and powdered sugar over it (and add sprinkles in top.) Yeah, sprinkles seem to be important.
    But cupcakes in general are a pretty new thing in Germany, that only developed within the last 10, 15 years, and this beautifully shaped "hat" of thick, creamy frosting is completely unknown in Germany. Sigh.
    Thanks again, dear internet!

  9. Wow---I completely forgot about these!!! My great aunt would freeze them and give them to us when we visited (that and her frosing roses...never sure why she always had SO many in her freezer, maybe just for our delight--she was sweet like that!)

  10. Thanks for the great idea! My boys will love this. The only problem is their mother has a huge sweet tooth and usually hides in the corner of the kitchen with a spoon and eats the leftover frosting!!!! I will try and control myself and give this recipe a try. :)

  19. I made those for my kids growing up too...my husband is a chocoholic so there's never any frosting left!! I like to put frosting between saltine crackers. If you like the sweet/salty thing, this is perfect!!
