I know. Another treat in a jar.
What can I say? They’re cute, portable, and single-serving. You can’t get much better than that!
I know I’m about a year late to the “jar craze,” but hey, I never did follow trends.
I never had a pair of Keds with the blue label torn off.
I never had a pair of hi-top Converse sneakers.
I refuse to wear flats without some sort of sock. Because, um, ew.
While every one in my class was wearing Guess and 5*7*9 and Wet Seal, I was still wearing my Kmart knockoffs.
Actually, the only trend I actually bought into was the pink explosion of 2003. In fact, prior to that winter, I had hated pink. And then, somehow I ended up with a pink trench coat ala Old Navy and a purse with a D on it. I still wear the coat, because pink will always be the new black.
Just like jarred desserts with a crust should be the new cupcake.
Especially when it’s made with liquor.
And given a crust. Made out of Thin Mints.
Let me back up a minute, I’m getting ahead of myself, as usual.
Do y’all read Back for Seconds? She’s awesome, BTW. A few weeks ago, she approached me to do a blogger swap-style “inspired by” post. Of course I said yes, because Hayley, Sally, and Ashley were participating.
And I got to make a recipe inpsired by the fabulous Ashley, at Kitchen Meets Girl.
If you’re not reading her, you’re totally missing out.
Now, when I was perusing her dessert category, I noticed a recipe for Bailey’s Chocolate Pudding. And then I remembered I had featured it ages ago on Crazy Sweet Tuesday. Fate? Of course. I must make it!
Now, Ashley makes some pretty delectable stuff. Stuff like Coconut Caramel Pie in a Jar, Cherry Limeade Pie in a Jar, and Mint Brownie Grasshopper Pie in a Jar. See where this is going? Of course I had to give my new crack this pudding a crust and put it in a jar.
Now, I must admit. Usually I can never get enough sugar. I think I was born without the “you’re full, stop eating dessert” signal. Which is why, when I make these again (because I will) I will double the amount of crust and spread it over eight jars, instead of four. It is very rich, chocolatey pudding and one full jar was a teensy bit too much for one person. Not that it stopped me from eating two in two days.
You must make this pudding. And now that I know I actually like pudding, watch out. More’s a’comin’.
