You see what I did there, with the pun?! Ahahahaha! I crack myself up. Anyshway, as I was blog hopping the other day (similar to bar hopping, but not) I happened upon these. What are they you wonder? They're s'mores bars in a jar! Say THAT five times fast...no really, I'll wait.
What I did was put about 1 1/4 C of Easter M&Ms in the bottom of a quart sized mason jar. Then I smooshed 8 Peeps around the jar inside. Next, I annihilated one sleeve of graham crackers and mixed it up with 1/3C brown sugar which was fun until the graham cracker packaging busted and my bedroom floor was covered in a nice graham cracker dust. I put a sandwich sized Ziploc in the middle of the Peeps and scooped the graham mixture in. Be sure to press the graham mix down and work it into the bag, otherwise it will NEVER FIT!
Ok, so what I haven't done yet is print up the cutesy little recipe card that will accompany these little beauties. What the recipient will need to do is take out the bag of graham mixture and mix that up with 1/2 C melted butter and 1 tsp. vanilla. Press into 9" square pan. Pour M & Ms and lay Peeps on top, bake in 350 degree oven for 15 mins! YUMMY!
I do plan on fancying the jars up a bit with ribbon or fabric or something.
