Easter Bunny Smores in a Jar

You will need:
1 sleeve of graham crackers crushed.
6-8 peeps
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1 cup pastel colored M&M's
1 qt mason jar
fabric and ribbon for the top of your jar, and paper to print out the instructions.

Easter Bunny Smores
Empty the contents of the jar into a bowl.  Snip the bunnies into pieces and return to the mix.  Add 1/2 cup melted butter and 1 tsp of vanilla and mix well.  Pat into a greased 9X9 inch pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 mins.  Cool and cut into bars.  You can also leave the peeps whole and just place them on top of the mix before baking.

I saw this idea here.  I thought they were so cute.  I decided to make them for the people that Pete home teaches, and the ladies that I visit teach.  The ones I made first weren't quite as cute.  They are the yellow ones.  Later I figured it was better to layer the graham crackers first, then the peeps.  I put the brown sugar in a sandwich baggie and then stuffed that in the middle between the peeps.  I put the M&M's on top.  Then I just cut some spring looking fabric from my scraps to add to the top.  After the picture was taken I attached the recipe using ribbon and a hole punch.  Super Easy and Super Cute!

You could do these for any holiday using the other kinds of holiday peeps and colored M&M's.
