Frosting Grahams

I’m back!

I have so much to share I don’t know where to begin…but can I say I missed you.
Like, really missed you.
You remember me, right?
I had a dream that you guys were all like “cookies and cups” who?
“We like Callye, Amy, Kristan, Glory, Robyn and Leslie now.”
And I cried.
I need constant reassuring.
So, please remember me.
Because I traveled a long way to come back…miles and miles across the country just so I could be here.
For you.
I am nothing if not dramatic.
Let’s proceed.
We vacationed in Naples, Florida with a bunch of friends.  There were 20 of us in all..and we had a blast!
We shared our time between the pool and the beach, which was great because while I love the IDEA of the beach, I think I am a pool girl.
The beach is a ton of work…and all that sand.  It stays with you for days.
 And there are critters in the ocean that might possibly kill you or sting you or at the very least swim around your feet.
I know the ocean is their digs, but I just want to be an easy guest in their home…no need to acknowledge my presence little fish. I know you’re there, you know I’m there…we needn’t say hello.
 And the undercurrent.  The ocean is constantly trying to suck you in…as if there isn’t enough life in the sea, that it needs me too.  Back off ocean.
Plus, I saw that episode of Friends where Chandler had to pee on Monica after she got stung by a jellyfish.
 While I love MY friends, there should never be pee involved.
It’s rule of mine.
And the beach…ok, let’s go there…you see some things.
Things that can’t be unseen.
Perfectly respectful people in real life decide to make all sort of strange decisions once they hit the the sand.
Very odd fashion choices, if you will.
Why is it ok for some to wear Speedos or inappropriate thongs?  WHY?
You would never walk down the street in a thong and a bra.  Why in the world would you do it on the beach?
I understand it’s hot…but the pavement offers no ocean breeze, so I think it’s safe to say that there is no excuse.
And I will say that the folks who should be wearing the most clothes, often wear the least.
I am sure some of you say, “more power to them!”
But what about ME?!
My eyes have feelings too.
So yeah, beach is good once in a while, but I like my unnaturally blue chlorinated water.
The kind of pool where there is a snack bar close in case you need food or a margarita soda.
A pool where you don’t have to bring chairs or umbrellas or coolers.
I’m lazy, I get it.
And because I am so lazy I like treats like these Frosting Grahams
They are delicious and only take 2 ingredients:
Frosting and graham crackers.
Use my recipe for buttercream and you will have a happy tummy!
I took the idea for these from my girlfriend who always makes them for her kids..she is a smart girl!
I like eating them cold, because the frosting doesn’t squish out the sides…but we have had them frozen and they are really yummy too!Thanks for making all my guest posters feel welcome while I was gone.
You guys are the best!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    Welcome back!!!

    We used to have grahams with chocolate frosting growing up….oh, how I LOVED that! Yours are prettier, though. 🙂

    Welcome back! We have made frosting grahams for years. It's one of the few times I'm okay with using canned frosting – though I do like them better with buttercream.

    Have never tried them frozen – yum!

  3. Heather @ Sweet Sins

    We just got a pool in our backyard a few days ago and while I was raised in So Cal I sure dp appreciate a nice pool where you don't have to wonder what you are swiming with! Glad to have you back!!

  4. The Partiologist

    Glad you had a great time! My mom actually started to teach me to decorate cookies this way – on grahm crackers! Thanks for the memories!

    wheeeewwwwwwwwwww SO GLAD you are back at it providing me THERAPY..these are simple and divine and the photos lovely. You are the best cookie and cup I know!

  6. Heather

    My dad and I have been eating these since I was a little girl. We even sold them at our lemonade stand when I was like 10. No one wanted any so my brother and I ate the majority of them. yum. it's good with chcolate frosting too.

    Welcome! What a fun fun time!!! I am totally a pool girl too. Critters freak me out. You took these frosting grahams to a whole new cuteness level…as always! 🙂

  8. nweames

    Love them with frosting, but recently have discovered nutella and graham crackers. Down side, I don't have to make anything so I eat more, but then again, that is an upside.

  9. Suzanne

    A-to tha-men on chlorinated water vs ocean. There is nothing in my crystal clear pool water that swallow me whole!

  10. Jocelyn

    Yay! You are back!!! Missed your posts but all your guest did awesome while you were gone! I am totally with you on ocean water…I will only go in knee deep for fear of things with giant teeth pulling me under:-) Love me that blue pool water! Glad you had a great time away!

  11. Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

    Glad you had a good time hanging out with your friends. I just want to give you a big hug for these frosting grahams, seriously, you have no idea how addicted I am to frosting and yet I've never thought to eat it this way!

  12. Lorie

    Welcome back!!! I am glad that you are back and LOVE graham crackers and frosting. I like chocolate more, but the colors might persuade me to try vanilla.

    I'm a Florida girl & I was "back home" last week for a visit. This post was hilarious, especially the fashion commentary. As for your sweet treat, yum… but honey, slap some buttercream on it and I'll eat a shoe.

  14. BreAna {Sugar and Spice and All Things Iced}

    Welcome back! Glad you had a fun vacation! We love graham crackers and frosting…I often catch my husband using my leftover royal icing on graham crackers…although I much prefer buttercream. Great idea to have them cold! 🙂

    We've made these for years…whenever my mom had extra frosting we made these cookies. Now I make them for my kids. –Niki

    Welcome back! These look yum and easy.
    The beach is great in theory. But like you, the last several times I've gone I've ended up in the pool. I have a pool in my neighborhood! Oh well, the view FROM the pool to the ocean is nice. Hope you enjoyed.

    Does any guy ever look good in a speedo? Doubtful. Who lets them out of the house like that?

    I missed you oodles. And oodles. And oodles.

    And I'll take any excuse to make and eat buttercream with reckless abandon. Love these.

  18. Ann

    I'm a Floridian – I know where you come from! I, too, like blue, chlorinated water.

    If you want to see interesting – go to a Florida beach! In California, they're all hard bodies in bikinis. In Florida, they're a melting pot full of people without a care in the (fashion) world! Appropriate is not a part of their lingo!

    Beautiful treats…

  19. SweetSugarBelle

    YES we missed ya. I was just thinking that today! Glad ur back! I hope vacay was great. can't wait til my turn.

  20. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

    Welcome back! I hope your trip was wonderful. 🙂

    Can we talk about how much I love these? I am so in support of anything that allows me to eat as much frosting as possible in a socially acceptable way. 🙂

  21. Jenni

    One of my friends taught me this yummy treat but used whipped cream instead of frosting. Then, you put them in the freezer and they are a nice, refreshing, frozen treat!
