Send a taste of home to your deployed soldier this holiday season and surprise them with a dessert in a jar. These sweet treats are baked and sent in mason jars, giving your soldier something to enjoy that is not only delicious, but is also homemade.
While some baked goods can spoil when sending overseas, with the proper preparation and sealing, these mason jar desserts should stay fresh during shipment. For an extra special touch you can decorate the jars with twine or ribbons and add a note tag with a personal message. Wrap each jar in bubble wrap and send a few in your next care package!
