How To Make smores in a jar

  • 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. 7. Print a free printable gift tag, or create your own tag with the recipe below.
