They were definitely worth it when Liv and I were sitting at the counter, clanking spoons together (“cheers”) and mmmm-ing our way through our respective jars.

Our pool is finally finished, and while summer is almost over, we’re determined to have as many get-togethers as possible until it cools down. (In Tucson, this doesn’t typically happen until around Halloween).) Desserts in jars usually come to mind for summer parties, especially since they’re easy to make in advance.

Here’s a new dessert for ya if you’re planning get-togethers, or want the PERFECT summer dessert. It’s easy to create a vegan and gluten-free option -just use gf graham crackers and grab ‘mallows at the health food store that suit your needs. This little jar of happiness has all of the flavors of a classic s’more.

The best part: make it in advance and when you’re ready to serve, just toast your marshmallows (preferably oven a grill or open fire instead of with the same lighter I use to light candles)
