When winter arrives, it brings with it a longing for warmth and comfort. What better way to cosy up than with the sweet aromas of freshly baked desserts wafting through your home? Baking in glass jars is a convenient and easy way to do this. Not only do these treats look charming, but they also make for perfect individual portions. In this post, we’ll explore some of our favourite winter desserts you can bake in glass jars purchased from us here at Glass Jars and Bottles.
Apple Crisp in a Jar
Nothing says “winter” quite like the comforting taste of apple crisp. This classic dessert can be transformed into a delightful jar dessert. Layer sliced apples with a cinnamon-spiced crumble in a glass jar, and then bake until the top is golden brown, and the apples are tender. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or custard for the ultimate winter indulgence.
Hot Chocolate Brownie Jars
Hot chocolate is a winter staple, but have you ever thought of turning it into a dessert? Create a hot chocolate brownie jar by layering brownie batter with gooey marshmallows and hot fudge sauce. Bake until the brownie is moist, and the marshmallows are toasted. The richness and warmth of this treat will chase away the winter chill.
Cranberry Orange Bread Pudding
Cranberries and oranges are winter fruits that bring a burst of tartness and brightness to the season. Combine them in a glass jar dessert by making cranberry orange bread pudding. Cube bread, soak it in custard infused with cranberries and orange zest, and bake until it’s golden and bubbling. The result is a warm, comforting dessert with a citrusy twist that’s perfect for the winter months.
Gingerbread is a quintessential winter flavour, and it can be transformed into an elegant dessert by making gingerbread trifles in glass jars. Layer cubes of gingerbread cake with spiced cream cheese and treacle drizzle for a festive and visually stunning treat.
