You guys! It’s SUMMER! I was beginning to think it might never come but it did. And the American in me immediately felt the urge to make s’mores with Kayla. S’mores are definitely a special treat in our home…which got me thinking that they would be a simple yet exiting treat to share with friends. So I made you a little s’mores in a jar gift to bring to your next BBQ.
This s’mores in a jar gift is the perfect hostess gift that will please multiple generations. You can customize it with organic or European versions of the classic ingredients to adapt it to your gift recipient’s tastes. It can also easily be made smaller or larger depending on the size of your crowd.
I started with the classics and added in some fun extras like gourmet chocolate bars and chocolate hazelnut butter spread that could be used in lieu of chocolate pieces. You can include basic skewers like these or some fun and fancy marshmallow roasting forks.
I used some baker’s twine to wrap the individual packages of graham crackers. Totally unnecessary but one of those little touches that makes the gift feel special. You can get baker’s twine in an array of colors and I use it for EVERYTHING! It’s an easy and inexpensive way to add color or a homemade feel to so many things.
Like I said, this s’mores in a jar gift is super easy. I used what was advertised as a cracker jar and put the largest items (graham crackers) in first. Then I added this organic milk that doesn’t require immediate refrigeration, my chocolate bars and hazelnut spread. I filled in the open spaces with loose marshmallows. You can bag them if you like, but I thought it felt more fun and kid-friendly this way. I put the skewers in (point down of course!) last and that was it.
The finished product was pretty cute! If you’re thinking this would be a nice homemade gift to bring someone in the near future but aren’t quite ready to make it yet, you can pin the photo below and it will be waiting for you when you’re ready.
