Halloween Peep Jars
This will be my last Halloween post I promise, I made these peeps jars for my Daughter's teacher I followed this recipe that I found on www.splitcoaststamper.com Ingredients in the Jar:
Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs or 1 1/3 cup and layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 qt. jar.
Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar pressing them against the glass, but dont squash them.
Carefully, spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
On top of this pour 1½ c. Easter M&M's.
Spoon 1/3 c. br. Sugar into center of M&M's gently pressing with a spoon.
Decorate the lid of the jar however you please and tie curly ribbons around the neck of the jar.
Directions: 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 and mix well. Melt ½ cup and 2 tbsp . butter, add 1 t. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
*Option: leave the bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed
I finished the jar off with Halloweenween fabric topper tied on with some black satin ribbon, and added the baking directions card.
The recipe card was sponged with elegant eggplant , night of navy and barely banana and then stamped the bats on. I then added the little bat from booglies on the corner of the card. I know the recipe card is a little large but, I wanted them to be able to read it without too much trouble. It has been so much fun doing Halloween projects , but I am so ready to move onto Christmas!!
