Gift Giving: Christmas S’mores in a Jar

My friend Bre shared this adorable jar of goodies with us.  If you are looking for a fun teacher or neighbor gift this is a great idea.  It is called “Smores in a Jar”.  The gift is beautiful and tasty, the perfect combination!  Here’s what you do:

Smores in a Jar

What you Need:

  • 1 Mason Jar
  • 1 cup Crushed Graham Crackers
  • 1 cup Holiday M&Ms
  • Marshmallows
  • Fabric
  • Paper & Tape

Layered Ingredients:

Wash and dry the mason jar.  Add the crushed graham crackers to the bottom of the jar.  Pour in the M&M’s and fill the remaining spacing (approximately 1 cup) with miniature Marshmallows.

Print Out these Directions:

  1. Remove Marshmallows and set aside
  2. Combine ingredients in the jar with 1/2 cup melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla
  3. Press mix into a 9 inch square baking pan
  4. Place marshmallows on top
  5. Bake at 350 degree for 15 minutes
  6. Cool Completely
  7. Cut into bars and enjoy!

Cut out a circle in the fabric 1 inch larger than the lid of your jar and place on the top then screw down the ring.  Tape the directions on the outside of the jar and give as a gift!

Great Idea. I am going to try to make these for the kids teachers gifts. I found really nice plastic jars with Christmas designs on them for $1.00 at the Family dollar. Rite Aid has the M&M’s 2 for $5.00 and I had a coupon for $1.00 off 2 packages of M&M’s.
Thanks for the idea.
