Strawberry Shortcake S’mores in a jar

Here’s a new twist on a summer favorite. I combined my love of strawberry shortcakes and s’mores into one dessert to create Strawberry Shortcake S’mores in a Jar. They are so easy to make and they are the hit of any party. You could even set up a buffet table and have everyone make their own jar. Please remember to always assist the kiddos with the bakery torch.
