Easter Treats (recipe)

One of the ladies on my scrapbooking board posted the cutest Easter recipe/craft and as soon as I saw it I knew that I had to try it. The recipe is for Easter Smores and as you can see from the pictures below it is so stinkin' cute. We made up several of these for the dance teachers, friends and family members. I can't wait to make these for other holidays since Peeps seems to be available for ever holiday now.

Easter Bunny S'Mores in a Jar
Ingredients and Directions:
1. Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs.
2. Layer 1/2-2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 qt jar.
3. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar.
4. Press them up against the glass, but don't squash them.
5. Carefully spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
6. On top of this pour 1-1/4 cup Easter M&M's.
7. Spoon 1/3 cup brown sugar into center of M&M's, gently pressing with a spoon.

Attach A gift tag to say:
Easter Bunny Smores
1. 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. Mix well.2. Melt 1/2 cup butter; add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. 3. Pat firmly into a greased 9" square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.(Makes 9 to 12 bars.)

I also made a batch of Mini Cupcake Bites. They looked a little rough the first time that I made them but I am getting better at making them. They are somewhat labor intensive but they are so darn cute (and yummy too!)
