Expert Tips

Use your favorite flavored graham cracker for these Santas. Break the graham cracker squares in half at the center perforation.

Use kitchen scissors lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray to cut gumdrops and marshmallows.

Kids can wrap individual Santa Grahams in festive colored plastic wrap to leave as a treat for Santa, or to give to grandparents and teachers.
