  • 1 canning jar, quart-size with lid and ring
  • 1 sleeve graham crackers (about 10 crackers or 1 1/2 cups of crushed crackers)
  • 1 large package seasonal Peeps® brand marshmallow candies
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips or seasonal M&M's brand milk chocolate candies


  1. Place graham crackers in a zipper freezer food storage bag. Use a rolling pin or meat tenderizer to crush crackers into crumbs.  You'll need about 1½ cups of crushed crumbs.  One "sleeve" of graham crackers, or about 10 whole crackers equals 1½ cups when crushed.
  2. Place graham cracker crumbs into quart-sized canning jar. Use a meat tenderizer to pack crumbs tightly into the bottom of the jar.
  3. Place Peeps candies against the glass on all sides of the canning jar. Press lightly to create a well in the center of the jar.  You'll use approximately 2/3 of the package.
  4. Add brown sugar to the space in the center of the Peeps, pressing gently to pack.
  5. Gently add chocolate chips or M&Ms to the top of the canning jar. Seal jar with lid and sealer ring.
  6. Embellish jar with fabric circle, ribbon or raffia.
  7. Create a gift  tag with the recipe below.

It is a very pretty jar full but when I made it according to the recipe it was floating with butter. I tried it again and used half the butter. It was better but still did not make like a cookie bar. I will add an egg next time to make it cook together more. Has anyone else had this problem?
