I saw this and it sounds like such a cute gift giving idea for Easter.

Directions

  1. Crush your graham crackers to crumbs.
  2. Layer 2/3 of crumbs on the bottom of a 1 quart jar.
  3. Place your bunnies standing up and facing out on inside of jar.
  4. Press them against the glass but don't squash them.
  5. Carefully spoon the remaining crumbs into the center of jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep snug.
  6. On the top of this, pour the Easter M&M's.
  7. Spoon the brown sugar over the top of the M&M's, gently pressing with a spoon.
  8. Attach a gift card that says:.
  9. EASTER BUNNY S'MORES.
  10. Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut with a knife. Return the bits to mixture and mix well.
  11. Melt 1/2 cup butter and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients and mix well.
  12. Pat into a greased 9x9-inch pan.
  13. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes.
  14. Cool and cut into bars.
  15. ***Optional--You can leave the bunnies whole and lay them on top of mixture to bake.

Such a great Idea, so pretty :) I think if you wanted to do it like this but did not like the actual recipe you could do it with this: Recipe #273444 using bunnies instead of mini marshmallows and easter wrapped mini hersheys or something like that :)

Yes, they look beautiful, but have you tried baking them? I did, and I wound up with a total pile of muck swimming in melted butter. To save them, I drained the butter off, spread the much in a 9x13 glass pan, added fresh marshmallows on top and baked it again. They were at lease edible after that. I'm only sorry I gave these as gifts before trying them! I'd say, cut the butter in half and add more graham crumbs, using the bagged crumbs, not crushed crackers.

I made these for Christmas using Snowmen instead of the Bunnies. I had a few problems with getting all the snowmn around in the jar. Not enough room. I ended up putting two on top under the lid. But then I used my leftover peeps to make a batch to taste. They were very plain and fell apart on us. So I ended up scrapping this idea and making brownies in a jar!!
