Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar

Strawberry Shortcake Jar

How pretty is this Strawberry Shortcake in a jar for a summer dessert?! Plus these are SOOOOO super simple and easy to make, you just won’t believe it!

I started making the desserts in a jar recipes after seeing the idea at a wedding a few years ago. They are great to send to school for the kids teachers or for a really nice presentation for something a little more fancy.

Try to find your jars on sale. I also have good luck finding jars at the Goodwill store.

Strawberry Shortcake Ingredients Obviously this dessert is layered in the jars for a pretty presentation. But you can also follow the same recipe and basically make it in a bowl and serve it in a bowl. Super simple!

Homemade Magic Shell

Did you know that you can make Homemade Magic Shell? It is super easy and tastes really good! I started using a lot more coconut oil for the health benefits and saw this recipe on the back of a jar one time.

I usually get coconut oil from the grocery store or Walmart, but you can always order it HERE.

Magic Shell

I melt the coconut oil and chocolate chips in the microwave, but you can always do it in a double boiler if you have one.

Once all melted and stirred together, you just need to store it in an air tight container! Easy!
