Mason Jar Madness

From Soup to Big-Little Week left overs, I’ve been using Mason Jars for everything!

Big/Little Week right before spring can be tough, especially if you have a sweet tooth AND you’re going to Panama City Beach in a month.. curb your sweet tooth and make a cute apartment decoration with your “preserved” candy collection, you’ll have a big/little week reminder for much more time, and no tummy ache from it!

>You’re a broke college/high school/not even a student, student. You need to give someone a secret santa gift. You have a handy-dandy Large-size Mason Jar. You know what you’re going to do? You’re going to make a s’more pie in a jar.

Ingredients:
1 Sleeve of Graham Crackers (crushed): to achieve this, I leave the crackers in the sleeve and bang it with my hands and against the table, so all i have to do is empty the sleeve out directly into the jar.
1 1/4 cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 Mini-Marshmellows
1/2 Brown Sugar, packed

What for you to do:

  1. Add these ingredients into the jar, you can mix it if you want, but that’s up to you. in my opinion, aesthetically it looks better in layers.
  2. take a piece of fabric, and put under the jar, seal. Provide instructions and tie onto neck of jar with a pretty ribbon.

The card should say:

Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9′ x 9′ baking pan, combine and mix ingredients, pour one stick of melted butter and one teaspoon of vanilla over contents. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Let sit, or serve warm. Serves 8-10.

Finished Product:

I’ve heard nothing but good things about this simple, and economically-friendly gift. I’ve found that it encourages time in the kitchen. 🙂 Enjoyed the gifts in a jar idea? Good, because there will be more coming your way, including hot chocolate, cookies, brownies etc.

Stay warm, kiddos. The weather outside is getting frightful…
Peace, Love, Chocolate, &
