Today is the Birthday of the Animal Cracker! If you need a super-quick, super-easy treat, you can't get much better than these cute guys. The animal crackers aren't very sweet, and with the chocolate they reminded me of a chocolate-covered shortbread. I put sprinkles on most of them because, well, kids love sprinkles. These are also great to send in lunchboxes; at least for a few minutes you can be the best parent in the world ;)
Note: This is more of a method than a recipe. You can make as much chocolate as you want, and the number of crackers you need depends on how much you chocolate you put on each cracker--you get the idea.
