The blue buttercream frosting uses real butter for an irresistible cracker idea you will love. You could even let the kids make this fun food for kids at a birthday party or kids get-together.

Using real butter for the buttercream frosting in these family fun graham crackers ensures the frosting will be rich and creamy. Butter is one of the oldest and most natural foods on the planet, and people have been enjoying it for thousands of years. Butter is made with 100 percent natural ingredients; it takes 33 ounces of fresh, wholesome cow's milk to make one pound of butter. Making butter is a simple, time-honored tradition. To make butter the cream is separated from milk, and churned until the cream thickens until it forms butter. Buttercream icing recipes are also known as butter cream, butter icing, and mock cream icing is an icing recipe or filling that is used in cakes, as a decoration, and as a coating. Buttercream icing its simplest form is an icing recipe that is made by creaming together butter with powdered sugar. Other fats can be used for this icing recipe such as margarine or lard. Colorings and flavorings can also be added to the recipe to include chocolate, fruit purees, and a variety of extracts. Buttercream icing is a popular topping for cupcake recipes, sponge cakes, butter cake recipes, and other dessert recipes. Whether buttercream recipes use no butter or a butter equivalent and can still be called buttercream is debated among pastry chefs, bakers, and cake decorators. Buttercream frosting is just one way you can use butter for fun foods for kids. You can also use butter to make a brown butter spread, perfect for putting on toast or using in your favorite pasta recipe. Brown butter takes any cake to a whole new level of complex, nutty flavor and adds toasted flavors to sweet desserts or even savory dishes like pasta and risotto. If you have butter, a pan, and a rubber spatula, you're good to go. You can use salted or unsalted butter to make brown butter; it's up to you. You can use a saucepan or pot and start by turning the heat to medium. Never take your eyes of the pan as it's easy to burn if you don't pay attention. You will never look at butter the same way.
