S'Mores in a Jar
Yes that is right... S'mores in a jar!
What could be better? Combining the flavors of the familiar campfire treat with the seasonal sweetness of Peeps ® brand marshmallow candies. And the cool thing is...you can change the theme for each holiday. So cool! These make great gifts for teachers, too!
So let's check out our Easter S'mores in a Jar!
You will need one 1 canning jar, quart-size with lid and ring.
Then layer the ingredients below:
1 sleeve graham crackers (about 10 crackers or 1 1/2 cups of crushed crackers)
1 large package seasonal peeps ® brand marshmallow candies
1/3cupbrown sugar, packed
1 1/4cupchocolate chips or seasonal m&ms brand milk chocolate candies.
Once you have your mason jar stuffed with yummy goodness, put the lid and ring on securely. Decorate as you wish. I used a paper ruffle, and a sticker border.
Then it's time to create your own gift tag with this S'Mores In A Jar Recipe: Here's Mine!
S'Mores In A Jar Recipe
Empty jar into large bowl. Remove marshmallows and combine remaining ingredients, mixing well.
Snip marshmallows into small pieces with scissors. Return to bowl; stir into dry mix.
Melt 1/2 cup butter, and add melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1/3rd cup buttermilk to bowl. Mix well.
Press lightly into greased 9-by-9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Then the really fun part....decorating the front of your tag. Here's what I did with mine!
I printed out our little angel onto Bazzill smooth white card stock. You can get her here. She is from Scrapper"s Delights, the host of our great blog hop. Then I colored her in with my Copic Markers. I finally got to use my neon colors! The green pleated paper is "perfectly Pleated" from Bazzill Basics, the flower stickers and border stickers are TPC Studio's Sunny Bunny Sticker Sheet. I used a dark pink brad and orange and green twine to tie the tag onto the jar lid.
Here is a close up of our little bunny girl. I gave her blond hair and blue eyes. I used pink, orange and green as my color theme.
Now let's take a look at the finished project! I am going to give this to a friend for Easter.

Good luck winning a great prize!
