Author Marty's Musings


  • Chocolate Graham Crackers
  • Regular sized Reese's Cups
  • M&M's in school color if desired
  • frosting you can match the school color or use chocolate like I did
  • Twizzlers


  • Remove paper liners from peanut butter cups and place upside down on waxed paper.
  • Place a small amount of frosting on each peanut butter cup.
  • Break graham crackers in half and center a half on each peanut butter cup.
  • Dot frosting on top of graham cracker and place M&M on frosting.
  • Cut Twizzler long enough to fit around or underneath M&M. Trim as necessary
  • Allow to set a few minutes in refrigerator.


Since the graham crackers don't always break evenly you might to want to have an extra sleeve of crackers handy depending on how many you want to make.
Keep out of heat until ready to serve.
