DIY Corner: S'more Love

Today's DIY is a fun and super easy favor idea perfect for any outdoor-loving couple or otherwise rustic-themed affair--campfire s’more bars! We made a test batch of these bars and... WOW. They are insanely tasty. You know it's good when guests are still talking about it years later as with this Colorado wedding. Bonus: they are very travel-friendly! People don't have to worry about suitcase or carry-on space as they aren't too large and can easily pass through security. Letterpressed tags with cooking directions are attached using simple twine and give it that extra special handmade charm.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED (PER FAVOR):
1 quart-sized mason jar (with lid)--we used these Kerr 32 oz wide-mouth jars from Target
1 c. graham cracker pieces (3 sheets)
1 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
3/4 c. milk chocolate chips
1/2 c. granola
1/2 c. almond slices
1/3 c. light brown sugar
twine--we used a 38-inch length piece for the wide-mouth jars
tag with directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. Pour the contents of the jar into a large bowl, mixing them up a bit. Add 6 tablespoons of melted butter and stir until everything is evenly coated and distributed. Press the mixture into the prepared pan and bake 12-15 mintues. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars and serving.

You'll need to do the math to figure out how much of everything you'll need for your number of guests.

ASSEMBLY:
1. We found it easiest to fill bowls with the ingredients and put the appropriate measuring cups with each. Line them up in the order above and you have a quick and easy assembly line.
2. Move from bowl to bowl, filling the jar with graham cracker pieces, mini marshmallows, milk chocolate chips, granola, almond slices, and finally light brown sugar. Just keep pressing down the last layers to fit everything to the brim.
3. String your tags on each piece of twine. Tip: we strung all of our tags at once using an embroidery needle and then moved each one along and cut to length around it.
4. Tie tags to the neck of the jar and finish with a sweet bow.

That’s it! You’ll have these done in one afternoon and your guests will be in for a treat.
