S’mores Cake in a Jar

As prepared by S Caron,

Have you seen the adorable, portable, super easy cakes that are all the rage these days?


So called cakes in a jar are single-serving sized mini-cakes baked in jelly jars. That means you can totally screw on canning caps and take ‘em just about anywhere.

Besides the obvious cuteness factor of these, I love how they are low-mess. Since they come in a sturdy serving container, you don’t run the risk of having crumbs everywhere like you do with cupcakes. Well, at least like I do.

And the reusability factor of the jars is huge too.

My recipe for S’mores Cake in a Jar is a fabulous introduction to cakes in jars. It takes the iconic flavors of s’mores (perfect for summer!) and transforms it into a cake. You start with Betty Crocker cake mix in your favorite chocolate variety (I use Devil’s Food). Then you make the batter and bake it in jars. Once they are done, you let them cool a bit and then close them up with a canning jar lid.

At serving time, just have the cakes ready to go along with Betty Crocker Whipped Cream Frosting, mini chocolate chips and graham crackers. You can frost and decorate them if you want – or you can let guests in on the fun by letting them do their own decorating magic.
