Ingredients in the jar: Reduce 1 sleeve of graham crackers to crumbs and layer all of the crumbs in the bottom of a 1 qt. jar. Place 6 - 8 peeps standing up, facing out, around the inside of the jar pressing them against the glass. Carefully spoon 1/3 cup brown sugar into center of the jar to support the peeps, pressing down to keep it snug. On top of this, pour 1 1/2 cups M & M's.
Decorate the top with holiday stamps and ribbons!
Directions: Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the peeps into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the peepe bits to the mixture and mix well. Melt 1/2 cup butter, add 1 tsp. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into greased 8 x 8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
Option: leave peeps whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the peeps on top then bake as directed.
