April's Easter Bunny S'mores


My good friend, April, makes the best roast beef I've ever tasted! I've also had a few other treats of hers at Bunco and each have been fabulous. However, she claims not to be a cook. On Easter, she brought me this darling treat and it really made my day! I told her that I'd had several requests for the recipe after posting a photo of it on my daily blog. She said, "Oh good! This will be the only chance I ever have of making your cooking blog!" Hardly, but here it is. It was adorable and quite tasty!

1 sleeve of graham crackers
1/3 cup brown sugar
7-8 marshmallow peeps
1 1/2 cups Easter colored M&M's

Crush your graham crackers to crumbs and mix with the brown sugar. Layer the crumbs in the bottom of a 1 quart jar. Next, pour the M&M's over the crumb mixture. Then, place your bunnies standing up and facing out on inside of jar. Press them against the glass but don't squash them. Attach a gift card that says:.


EASTER BUNNY S'MORES

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. Pat into a greased 9"
square pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15
minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
(Makes 9 to 12 bars.)
*Option - leave bunnies
whole; combine remaining
ingredients and place
the bunnies on top; then
bake as directed.


Personally, after making them, I'd just more like 1/3 cup of butter instead. I liked it better the second day than I did right out of the oven. So, I suggest cooling before serving. It was MOST tasty! Enjoy!
