Mason Jar Desserts

April 28, 2011 by JB

Apparently there’s a big trend right now baking and serving desserts in mason jars.

I look at quite a few food websites and blogs and honestly, I’ve not noticed this “trend”.

That said, I’m happy to jump on the mason jar bandwagon!

I’ve served margaritas in mason jars.

I use mason jars to hold silverware when we have a group of people over for a casual dinner party.

Mason jars make great vases.

I’ve sent leftovers home with guests in mason jars.

I love me some mason jars!

We’ve all seen the pre-mix mason jar gifts. A brownie mix in a mason jar or a soup mix.

That’s not what I’m talking about or what the article I saw this morning was referring to.

Here’s the article (love the title):

5 Reasons Why Desserts in Jars Are the Schizzle-Dizzle

 

From the blog, How Sweet It Is, which by the way also came a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cinnamon Rolls that I made last weekend, comes a recipe for these awesome looking S’Mores Cakes in mason jars.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to need to try this out this weekend.
