S'mores in a Jar
A really cute gift that can be modified for any occasion when cute marshmallows are available. Recipe makes a yummy s'mores bar. The candy and marshmallows stay pretty-looking in jar because graham crumb mixture is put in a bag before layering in jar. Add ribbon or fabric as desired.
If using marshmallow Peeps(R), only pour 1 cup of candies into jar. Then place 7 to 8 marshmallow Peeps(R) inside of jar, facing out. In center of Peeps(R), pour the remaining candies, pressing slightly to keep the Peeps(R) snug.
To bake s'mores: empty all jar contents into a large bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Press gently into a greased 9-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Cool completely and cut into bars.
