JAR Ingredients

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup peanut butter chip
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS (to be added by the recipient)

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Creating the Gift in a Jar: Wash and thoroughly dry a 1-quart wide-mouth canning jar. Layer the ingredients in the jar as listed above starting with the graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, peanut butter chips and then mini marshmallows - make sure to press firmly with a flat bottomed object after each addition; make the layers as level as possible. Secure the lid and decorate as desired; attach the instructions for making these cookies found below.

Additional ingredients to be added by the recipient: 1/2 cup butter, melted and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Preheat oven to 350. Place the contents of the jar in a large bowl and stir until well mixed. Pour the butter and extract over the dry ingredients and stir to mix. Use the back of a fork to press the dough lightly into a greased 9x9 inch baking pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the top is light brown in color. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before cutting into 9 bars. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
