I have long loved the look of desserts in a jar. Seriously – they’re just so fun to not only look at, but also to eat. You can take them along when going camping, at work, on road trips, pack them for your kids on school days, and so on. The possibilities are endless.
You could, of course, make the same desserts in their non-jar form. What’s the fun in that though? Plus, if you need some on-the-go treats or a simple way to split desserts into reasonable portions, using jars is a handy way to go.
Today, I’m sharing a list of some of awesome desserts in a jar from around the web. Hopefully you’ll find one that you can’t wait to try. I know that I have several of these on my must-try list!

Putting our cake pieces and frosting, along with sprinkles, in a jar made it go from disaster to deliciously charming!
