Picnic Blanket Treats

Graham Crackers
Strawberry Fruit Roll Ups
White Cookie Frosting (we like Betty Crocker)
Assorted Starburst & Tootsie Roll, & Caramel Candy
Chocolate Sprinkles
Black Edible Marker

Start out by cutting the fruit roll up in half using kitchen scissors or a knife and then cover 2 graham crackers with each half. Make lines on the top using the pre-made white cookie frosting. Take each piece of candy that you will be working with and soften it in the microwave for 5 to 8 seconds.

We shaped the picnic basket with 2 caramels & the inside is a piece of a Tootsie Roll. The watermelons are shaped from a strawberry Star Burst & lime Tootsie Roll. We used black edible marker to make the seeds. We added chocolate sprinkles to look like little ants….

On this blanket we made a burger using a couple pieces of caramel for the bun & a piece of a Tootsie Roll for the meat. We made plates using a lemon Tootsie Roll. Make the watermelon as listed above….

I couldn't wait to see what the blanket was made from – the entire picnic spread is adorable!

Love this graham cracker treat, Jill! The details are adorable and so well done!

What fun! The sprinkle ants are so easy and the look perfect on blanket. The detail on your basket is so nice and I love that it was made from caramels. Thanks for joining us for a picnic party.
