Easter Peep Jars

Easter Peep Jars

Ingredients for 1 Jar:

1 sleeve graham crackers, crushed
8 marshmallow peeps
1-1/2 cups Easter M&Ms
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 jar, lid


Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers (approx 1-1/3 c.)to crumbs 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 don’t 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 1-½ cups Easter M&M’s. Spoon 1/3 cup brown sugar into center of M&M’s gently pressing with a spoon. Decorate the lid of the jar however you please…tie curly ribbons around the neck of the jar.

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 butter, add 1 tsp 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
