My niece's 8th birthday and her dog's 1st birthday are one day apart, so my niece wanted a dog-themed party, which was last night. I promised to make some dog bone cookies. The plan was to get a dog bone cookie cutter and make sugar cookies decorated in my "usual" style, but then I saw the Scooby Doo graham crackers at the grocery store. Too perfect and way less work! Otherwise, this is my typical method of decorating cookies.

The crackers are actually better than a thinner sugar cookie - it was easier to tap off the excess frosting. Not one broke (unless already broken in the box).

So, this isn't quite a recipe, but they were a huge hit (mostly gone within an hour) so I wanted to share.

Specs: 1 box of Scooby graham crackers (from the cookie aisle), 1 tub of vanilla frosting (thinned in the microwave), 1 bottle of non-pariels. The beauty part of this (besides the no baking and minimal clean-up) is that if your kitchen is a mess (like mine), you can do the whole thing on your ironing board like I did.

I nuked the frosting for 1 minute to thin it, laid out some paper plates, and cut down a plastic cup and poured half the non-pariels into it. Then, I dipped half to three-quarters of each "biscuit" in the icing and tapped off the excess and scraped the bottom mostly clean. Finally, I dipped the end of most of the biscuits into the sprinkles (that was a little messy, so sometimes I just sprinkled some over the end). After they set for a few minutes, the icing was dry enough to put them on a platter.
Close-up. About 70% have sprinkles, 15% or so are dipped but w/o sprinkles, and the rest are plain. If you've ever had a graham cracker & frosting "sandwich," you'll know how good these taste (a little sweet, though).

Lesson learned (at least for my family): Fewer plain, more sprinkles. And 60-year-old men (the grandfathers) will insist on feeding the plain ones to the dog.

My SIL managed to find candy favors for the kids which were little plastic dishes (looked like dog food bowls) filled with candy that looked like kibble and a little candy dog bone. She decorates cakes, so there was a dog-themed cake too. My niece wore dog ears all night that she made out of construction paper. Kind of a strange theme for an 8-year-old's party, but she wanted it that way and had a blast, which is the important thing.
