6 scoops (about 1/2 cup each) strawberry-flavored ice cream or frozen yogurt
Assorted valentine candies, jelly beans or small fresh flowers
Pastry bags and assorted decorating tips

  1. Spoon icings into pastry bags fitted with decorating tips; set aside.
  2. Break graham crackers crosswise in half. Place 1 scoop ice cream in center of each of 6 graham cracker halves.
