Here is my project for My Pink Stamper's 2011 Design Team. Robyn is choosing 2 new people to serve on her design team for a 6 month term. The challenge is to create a new project using Robyn's favorite colors: pink, green, and brown and another color of my choice. The deadline for submissions is tomorrow at midnight. To see the further submission requirements, click here.
My submission is a jar gift. I saw this originally from MizEster on the circut message board. They are smores in a jar. When you bake the contents, the final project are seasonal smore bars for everyone to enjoy. She did a Halloween version of the jar. I loved the idea, and wanted to create some for the holidays. I loved the fun, bright, non traditional colors at Christmas time and thought they would make a cute winter time gift.
To make the jars, crush an entire sleeve of graham crackers and place them in the bottom of the jar. Then, place peeps around the jar and 1/3 cup brown sugar in the middle of the circle of peeps. Next, fill the jar with M&Ms. What's great about this project is that you can do this for any holiday. They typically make peeps and M&Ms for every major holiday.
The back of the tag has the cooking directions on it. I printed them out on the computer. Here it is in case you were wondering...Combine ingredients of the jar with 1/2 cup of melted butter and 1 tsp. vanilla. Press mixture into 9-inch square baking pan. Place the marshmallows on top. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool completely. Cut into bars and enjoy!
