Mason jar recipes

The mason jar trend is nothing new, but it still seems to be going strong (and in my book still adorable!). From sweets to snacks, drinks to meals — I love all mason jar recipes. Here are a few I’ve spotted that I can’t wait to try.

Neapolitan cake, rainbow cake (would be darling for birthday or St. Patrick’s Day), individual pies (the flags are a cute bonus!).

Here are some of my favorite and unique mason jar recipes that go beyond cakes and pies:

Smore pudding, ice cream (hello brilliant!), and chili topped with cornbread (this has to be my all-time favorite!).

    Thanks for including my cornbread topped chili in your roundup! Mason jars are perfect for so many things, but I especially love them for mixing up and storing homemade salad dressing!

    Hi Jennifer! My sister just got married and we used mason jars to serve drinks~~(picnic themed reception)~~ so with many jars of different sizes left over just hanging around~~~ put my tailgate dip in some of them before baking (buffalo chicken dip)~ loved the look and everyone gets to have their own little jar! great for transporting!! …and if u put the top on right out of the oven~ they seal themselves!!!!

    That Neapolitan cake looks adorable! Definitely going to try that one out and the rainbow cake one too. Thanks for posting… I’ve only just discovered mason jars, and I’m going a little over the top with them. LOL

    Can I do cornbread only? I hate to put chili on my cornbread.
