Desserts are a favorite in my home! It never fails that as soon as I’m done eating dinner, I crave chocolate. There are times when I just reach for something quick and easy but when I have free time, I love to bake up a yummy dessert for the family. This mason jar brownies dessert is a favorite in my home. The kids absolutely loved that it was served up in a mason jar. I thought it was a pretty fun dessert as well.
