Happy Friday!! I have one more fun Easter project to share with you today. I would have shared this earlier but I just assembled them. It's not a new idea but I've always wanted to make them...and this year I finally did.
I started with a wide mouth quart sized mason jar. And then added the ingredients to make Peep Smores in layers:
Bottom: 3/4 cup crushed graham crackers
Middle: 7 peep bunnies around the jar in a ring. Add another ~1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs to fill the hole inbetween the peeps. Pack the graham crackers down tight with a spoon.
Next: 1 1/2 cups Easter M&M's. Pack down.
Top: 1/3 - 1/2 cup brown sugar. Pack down tight!
I also took advantage of my new stamp set from Avocado Arts. I really loved this retro funky chick stamp and used it to create the tag on the jars.
I used paper from the Chloe's Garden paper pad by Momenta. I paper pieced the shell using a different patterned paper on each of the tags. I really love this fun chick stamp!!
The front of the tag is a pocket. I included the instructions for making Peep Smores on the insert inside the pocket.
1. Dump contents of jar into a bowl.
2. Snip peeps into small pieces
3. Melt 1/2 cup butter. Add butter + 1 tsp vanilla to bowl. Mix all ingredients well.
4. Press ingredients into an 8 inch square pan.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
6. Cut into squares and eat!
There you have it...Peeps In A Jar! My kids and I went all over the neighborhood last night giving these away to friends. We had so much fun! I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. I am looking forward to spending it with family and friends. Thanks for stopping by today, Peeps!!
