Rainbow Frosted Graham Cracker Ingredients
-Marshmallows: 36 mini marshmallows will help to give our crackers a little puffy cloud appearance.
-Graham crackers: You will need 3 sheets of graham crackers. Any brand will do.
-Airheads: To give us a rainbow, we want to use the Airhead Extremes Belts. These are colorful strips of candy you can find in almost any grocery store. Prep them by placing something heavy on top to flatten them before use.
-Frosting: One cup of prepared white frosting, either homemade or from a storebought container will be enough to coat all of your graham crackers.
-Blue food coloring: You will want about ½ teaspoon of blue gel food coloring. You can use any blue shade preferred and the amount will vary until you achieve the desired hue.
How to Make Rainbow After School Snack
Gently break the graham cracker sheets in half so that there are now 6 pieces.
Cut the airhead belts in half so that there are 6 pieces.
Place your frosting into a small bowl and mix together with the blue food dye until the color is achieved and no white streaks remain.
Place your frosting into a frosting bag with a fitted tip and then place a little line of dollops of frosting onto the graham squares.
Fold your airhead belt pieces into an arch like a rainbow and place the ends gently into the frosting on each graham cracker.
Around the end of each rainbow side, place 3 mini marshmallows for a total of 6 marshmallows per cracker. Enjoy!

How long are rainbow frosted graham crackers good for?
These will keep for two days in a sealed container in the fridge. They don’t do well sitting out since the frosting wants to melt.
What frosting tip should I use?
If using frosting bags you will want to use Ateco tip #860. You can also just spread the frosting on the crackers using a butter knife, but a frosting tip makes it appear smoother.
