The elves can’t believe how simple this recipe is, even if you aren’t an experienced baker! You can still whip up a batch that your family and friends will love! 

Bunny the Elf wants to note that she prefers to use graham crackers, as opposed to saltines for an added flavor burst and extra heart happiness! ;)
