More About This Recipe
  • These individual desserts are not only super cute, but they also pack a punch of incredible vanilla caramel and white chocolate flavor into each bite. Cupcakes are certainly fun but these small cakes in mini mason jars decorated with a ribbon and a tiny spoon make cupcakes look boring in comparison. These individual desserts are not only super cute, but they also pack a punch of incredible vanilla caramel and white chocolate flavor into each bite. They are pretty enough to serve at an elegant party, but are simple enough to make that they are perfect to serve to your family for dessert tonight. You start by whipping up a Betty Crocker™ White Cake Mix, using some Vanilla Caramel Creamer in place of a portion of the water. The creamer really enhances the flavor of the cake. Your whole house will smell like caramel as the cakes bake. It's so amazing that your neighbors might just break down the door to get a whiff. Before you get those cakes in the oven, however, I suggest you make your white chocolate ganache so that it has time to firm up, so that once your cakes are cooled, you wont have to wait for too long before frosting and digging into one of the delectable treats.
