Easter S'Mores in a Jar

These are the cutest Easter Gifts EVER!! I found these at Tip Junkie (LOVE this Blog!)  She called them 'Bunny Brownies' or Easter S'Mores in a Jar.  I decided to try them out.  She had good ideas too on how to put them together, a little different from mine.
Here are all my supplies gathered for the project.  I decided to try a few different variations of this to see what I liked better.

Ingredients and Directions:
1. Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs.
Layer the crumbs in a 1 qt jar.
2.On top of this pour 1-1/4 cup Easter M&M’s.
3. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar.
4. Press them up against the glass, but don’t squash them.

OR just put the silly bunnies/candy/crumbs in the jar anyway you want!  I even have a few ideas on how to do it differently next time, but there will be a next time because they were fun and EASY!

TIP: I used my AMAZING 'Ninja' to blend up the graham crackers, I also added the brown sugar in there too.  SOOOOO much easier than trying to smash/roll the crackers in a bag with a rolling pin.  I'll NEVER do that again! lol  

Attach A gift tag to say:
EASTER BUNNY S’MORES (or Bunny Brownies)

1. Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture. Mix well.
2. Melt 1/2 cup butter; add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 9″ square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
(Makes 9 to 12 bars.)
*Option – leave bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed.
*This gift jar may be created to suit any holiday for which marshmallow candies are available. (LOVE this tip!)

Here is my finished product!  I first made them with the M&M's on the bottom, placed the bunnies inside, then tried to fill in with the crumbs.   Next I tried crumbs, M&M's then marshmallow bunnies instead of Peep Bunnies.  And last I tried crumbs, M&M's then bunnies.  Maybe next time I'll try crumbs, M&M's, bunnies, crumbs.  Who knows....but it was fun anyway.  My hubby took these for his 'Home Teaching' Families, I hope they liked them!
