S’mores Cupcakes in a Jelly Jar

I love desserts in single serving sizes, especially when it’s in a jar. Served in adorable jelly jars, these luscious layered s’mores cupcakes are a guaranteed hit for any party.

Make Ahead

Decorated cupcakes can be made ahead of time. Prepare as directed, except do not top with marshmallows and graham pieces. Refrigerate up to 8 hours. Top with marshmallows and graham pieces just before serving.


If you don’t have 24 jelly jars, you can fill the split cupcakes on a platter instead.
