Ingredients

  • 1
    canning jar, quart-size with lid and ring
  • 1 pkg
    1 sleeve graham crackers (about 10 crackers or 1 1/2 cups of crushed crackers)
  • 1 pkg
    1 large package seasonal peeps ® brand marshmallow candies

    1 1/4 cup chocolate chips or seasonal m&ms brand milk chocolate candies

How to Make smores in a jar

Step-by-Step

  1. Instructions
    1. Place graham crackers in a zipper freezer food storage bag. Use a rolling pin or meat tenderizer to crush crackers into crumbs. (You'll need about 1 1/2 cup of crushed crumbs: one "sleeve" of graham crackers, or about 10 whole crackers equals 1 1/2 cup when crushed.)

    2. Place graham cracker crumbs into quart-sized canning jar. Use a meat tenderizer to pack crumbs tightly into the bottom of the jar.

    3. Place Peeps candies against the glass on all sides of the canning jar. Press lightly to create a well in the center of the jar. (You'll use approximately 2/3rds of the package; our Halloween recipe used 6 of a 9-pack package of Ghost Peeps.)

    4. Add brown sugar to the space in the center of the Peeps, pressing gently to pack.

    5. Gently add chocolate chips or M&Ms to the top of the canning jar. Seal jar with lid and sealer ring.

    6. Embellish jar with fabric circle, ribbon or raffia.
