Doris and Cookie Text read: Doris with the one remaining Band Aid Cookie after the Small Ensemble Concert

It's best for Doris to explain this one herself:

Amongst all the water and donuts at the 2001 March of Dimes WalkAmerica was a tray of these delights. The donuts didn't tempt, but these little cookies caught my eye. I inquired of the parade officials and they pointed out a sweet little old granny in the crowd. I went over and thanked her for bringing such a delicious treat, which seemed odd for her to do as the other treats were store bought and part of the parade deal. She gave me her recipe, but she didn't have a name for them, so here it is; I will name them Band Aid® Cookies. They are about the right size, they are of course, Band, and aided the March of Dimes WalkAmerica participants. This cookie is fast and easy and good.


  • 2 inner packs of regular graham crackers
  • 2 squares Land o’ Lakes® unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup bakers’ sugar
  • Slivered almonds
  • Martha’s Recommended® Chocolate

Cut graham crackers into 4 sections along the scored lines and place in a jellyroll pan. Cook the sugar and butter, boiling and stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes. If sugar crystals form on side of pan, wipe them off with a wet paper towel or pastry brush dipped in water. Pour the mixture over the crackers and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and pour melted chocolate over the top. Enjoy!
