This was featured on the morning news awhile back. I saw this and had to make it for my DD's birthday trip to buildabear. The Graham Crackers called for int eh ingredients list are for the bear shaped Teddy Graham crackers - NOT regular graham crackers.

These are so cute! Had them at a party and just made them for my 4yo and 2 yo and a batch to bring to school for the last day. All the kids loved them. They are so cute and easy to make, my 4 yo helped with the decorating. It was a nice rainy day project!!! So simple, with the box cake mix you can make your favorite flavor so you know its going to be delicious!!!
