Peeps in a Jar – Easter S’mores.

I saw this project on a bunch of websites & made up some for Easter gifts for teachers & other special “peeps” :)

If you Google “Peeps in a jar” you’ll find lots of examples & methods for making these.  I combined a few & here’s what I did:

Crush 1 sleeve of graham crackers into crumbs & dump into the bottom of a canning jar – if you use ones with the wide mouths I would imagine it would be much easier, but I had these on hand.

Place your Peeps in the jar – against the side.  I used the end of a wooden spoon to smush the last one in. 

In the center of the Peeps place 1/3 cup of brown sugar.  This was easiest to do when I packed together several little clumps & dropped them into the jar.  Then I tamped it down using the bottom of a gravy ladle.  Place 1 1/4 cup of M&Ms on top & you’re almost done!

Here is a link to sheet of tags I made with Storybook Creator Plus.  They have the baking directions to make the Peeps S’mores.

I also made a circle label for the top.   

It features this little guy made with SBC+. You should be able to click on it, then right click on the picture & use “save as” to save it to your computer & import it for use in your digital projects.


This was a fun & easy project & would be great for other holidays, too – I know I’ve seen lot of other types of Peeps – pumpkins, ghosts, snowmen –pair them up with seasonal M&Ms & you have tons of possibilities!!

Happy Easter!


  1. Totally cute! Thanks for the labels, too. I may even still make these in time for the weekend. Thanks also for the new stuff previews. Will those add ons be available in digital, too? I HOPE so!
