If your family is like mine, there are very few desserts they can all agree on. One likes only chocolate cake, one doesn’t like chocolate anything. Two like vanilla ice cream, one likes mint chocolate chip. And the list continues. It seems like an idea for a special treat turns into either 5 different desserts or tears.

Whether you have picky eaters or you just love the cuteness of desserts in a jar, these recipes are sure to please everyone in your family! Check out these delicious recipes today! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
