    Frozen Fun Suns

    12 paper baking cups

    3/4 cup crushed graham crackers

    3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

    3/4 cup commercial sour cream

    1 package (3 ounces/85 g) lemon gelatin

    2 tablespoons hot water

    1/2 cup chocolate chips

    1. Place baking cups inside a muffin tin.

    2. Mix crushed graham crackers with melted butter or margarine. Drop approximately one tablespoon of crumb mixture into each baking cup and press it firmly against the bottom to form a crust.

    3. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, gelatin, and water; mix well.

    4. Spoon one heaping spoonful of cream cheese mixture onto each crust and spread evenly.

    5. Form smiley faces with chocolate chips on top of each “sun.”

    6. Freeze suns until firm (approximately one hour). Serve frozen.
