Mason jar desserts are just way too much fun! You can make them casual or a little fancy, all depending on how you layer all the delicious ingredients inside. As long as it has a variety of textures and colors, I am all over it.
These double chocolate raspberry mason jars are a combination of all my favorite things – chocolate, fresh fruit, more chocolate and pillowy whipped cream. With every forkful you pull up a little bit of everything, guaranteeing an incredible bite. Plus chocolate cake AND chocolate chips? Ummmm sign me up!
This is one of those mason jar desserts that requires very little effort. You could even make these if you have some leftover chocolate cake! The raspberry sauce is super easy and after that, it’s essentially assembling the jars.
Then you’re off and ready to enjoy a gorgeous spring or summer ay, desserts conveniently in hand.
Prepare the chocolate cake according to the directions on the box. Cool completely and crumble into large chunks.
In a medium bowl, whip heavy cream with 1 Tbsp sugar until it reaches stiff peaks. Set aside.
Combine raspberries, 1/4 cup sugar, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently until the raspberries fall apart and the sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.
Assemble the jars by layering the chunks of chocolate cake, raspberry sauce, whipped cream and mini chocolate chips until you reach the top of each jar. Top with a fresh raspberry for garnish and serve.
