 Crush graham crackers into crumbs to make the "sand" for your chocolate candy rock quarry edible excavation.
 3. Plastic cups. I like to use clear 9oz plastic cups. 
4. Spoons. I prefer to use little spoons like the taster spoons you get at a frozen yogurt shop, but any spoon will work just fine. 
Once you have your graham crackers crushed into crumbs, put them in the plastic cup and stir in a good amount of chocolate candy rocks and serve. Super easy!
