M&M Peep Smores

Hey guys, sorry I have not been around as much as I like to be but I have been trying to get my Facebook page built up.  Check me out there:  25 Hours A Day

So anyway, I was reading some blogs and came across this totally cute Easter project at Stacy Makes Cents.

You’ll need a quart mason jar, Peeps in your favorite color, brown sugar, cookie crumbs, and Easter M&Ms.

Pour your crumbs down in the jar to make your first layer. Reserve about ¼ cup of the crumbs.  I think this is equivalent to one sleeve of graham crackers, crushed.

Now, arrange your Peeps around the side of the jar, sitting on the crumbs. I can’t tell you how many it will take because it depends on your jar, etc.  Make sure they’re facing out, so they can see the world – otherwise they’re going to get claustrophobic in there. You want them to fit pretty tight. I used six.

Pour your reserved crumbs down in the middle of the Peeps. Then, put your brown sugar down in there too. You will use ¼ cup brown sugar. Pat it down just a bit to help stabilize the bunnies.

Now, pour your M&Ms (about 1c.) on top of the sugar. They should come pretty close to the top of the jar.

 Seriously now, how cute is this???

You need to send a recipe with the jar. I mean, you could just sit down with a spoon and this jar and live a happy life. Here is what this recipe card says:

Empty jar contents into bowl. Cut bunnies into small pieces. Mix back into bowl. Melt 1 stick of butter. Add 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well. Press into greased 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

 Thank you Stacy Makes Cents!
