Today I’m going to share with you a Christmas recipe that’s been in my family for years, Graham Cracker Bites. My Mom always used to make these yummy bites to take to friends and family at Christmas time.
These Graham Cracker bites are an addicting combination of Graham Cracker, Marshmallow, and Coconut and I can NEVER eat just one. My Mom always used to give them away to friends and family, now I know why!

When you say 30 squares of graham crackers…do you mean 2 individual crackers? Usually one cracker is made up of 4 individual crackers.

Same question about the squares- if you’re talking about the smallest size, I’d call those rectangles. 🙂 And how do you think these would turn out without the coconut? I’m not the hugest fan…
Melissa Mortenson says
Sorry! Squares defined as 1/2 of a full size graham cracker rectangle (or 2 of the small rectangles).
I’m sure you could make it without the coconut!
Sweetened or unsweetened coconut? Thanks!

hi what do you mean about the coconut is it the coconut milk or the coconut itself? thanks
Melissa Mortenson says
It’s shredded coconut
