Deconstructed S'Mores - Valentine's Edition

I had a few things going through my brain...what to make for the kids for their

Deconstructed S'Mores - Valentine's Edition | Addicted to Recipes
Valentine's treats to take to school, that were nut-free, and then top it off with a craving for some s'mores.  It's not even camping season, and I was craving s'mores.  Really didn't help my "what to make for the kids dilemma"...and then I came up with this SUPER EASY treat / snack that is perfect for the kids' Valentine's party, and satisfied the craving too :)

Deconstructed S'Mores - Valentine's Edition

2 cups Graham crackers (I used Goldfish grahams)
1 cup Smarties (red and pink for Valentine's day)
1 cup Mini Marshmallows

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Store in an airtight container. Serve as needed.

Seriously, super easy. My kids loved it.  I keep a little snack bowl out on the counter for them to grab a few nibbles when they desire.  They thinks it's a pretty cool little treat!
