15 Blogs with Dessert-in-a-Jar Recipes for Goodies on the Go

Over the last few years, one of the biggest dessert trends has been the dessert-in-a-jar.  For years people would serve lemonade or other drinks in a jar to lend a quaint country feel to the occasion, and now desserts are taking on that same Southern charm.  Plus, they’re perfect for when you’re on the go; just put a lid on the jar and pack it in a lunch box, picnic basket or cooler and you’re ready.  These desserts can be made in many varieties, including layered desserts, baked desserts and frozen desserts.  Feast your eyes on these 15 blog entries for inspiring recipes.

Layered Desserts

Layered desserts are created by layering different ready-to-eat ingredients into jars of various sizes.  Everything is already cooked and can be eaten at room temperature.  One example of a layered dessert might be a cupcake divided up with frosting between the cake layers, making a cupcake taste more like a layered cake.  That’s not all you can do though; there are many other options, as you can see when you take a look at these five blog posts.

Baked Desserts

Baked desserts are desserts that are built inside the jar and then baked.  You can bake pie, cake, or bread right in the jar.  The dessert can be enjoyed fresh from the oven or at room temperature on a picnic.  These desserts can even be frozen and baked off a few at a time.  They also make a special treat for guests.  Bake them off and tie a ribbon around the jar to give them away as gifts.  For some baked in a jar goodness, check out the following five blog articles.
