S'mores in-a-Jar

I love making little gifts for my friends/and in particular, their kiddos.  I heart the idea of this little gift, and it doesn't hurt that it's tasty.  I think it's a perfect treat to celebrate the upcoming summer.  I originally saw it here, though I've seen it quite a few places since this time, this was my original spotting!  I used a different recipe (to follow) to sample this before I sent it out.  What kind of friend would I be if I didn't sample a dessert first?  I also halved the following recipe to fit in smaller ball jars when I ran out of big ones.  :O) 
 The full smore recipe (attached to the jar).  1 1/2 c. teddy grahams, 1 1/2 c. marshmallows, 1 1/2 c. milk chocolate morsels.  Mix with 1/2 c. (packed) brown sugar in a (9x9 inch) pan.  Drizzle 1/2 c. of melted butter over the mix and bake for 10 minutes at 350...
 It will look like this. 
 Cool and then cut into squares for bars of (cute) smore goodness.

You know....if you half the recipe for the smaller jars like you mentioned....mix the ingredients up right in the jar....drizzle with the butter right in the jar....bake right in the jar. That could be an awesome dessert for one! Great job on these! Thanks for sharing.
