Kindness Jars - Year 3

It's that time of year again when we gather up recipes 
and jelly jars to make kindness jars!  As you can tell from this post and this one,
we have created an annual event.  
Our friends the "M's"  have moved to a new destination.  
But before moving Mrs. M gave us some sweet recipes to use for this year's event! 
Thank you Mrs. M!

We invited some other friends to join us,  "The K's" were a wonderful addition!  
They did a fabulous job of assembling, driving, 
and delivering the little jars of kindness with us!  
We enjoyed having them SO much!  

We chose two simpler desserts than in the past.  
The one on the left is Strawberry Shortcake and the one on the right is Easter Smores.
While assembling, PV announced that the Easter Smores 
were like a chicken sitting on her eggs! :)

The kids really enjoyed putting the Easter Smores together.
Even the youngest K joined in on the fun! 
I encourage you to have your children participate in 
acts of kindness at any age! They really can benefit and so do the recipients!



Little K and PV Did a great job of explaining to the recipients
 what they needed to do with the jars.
It was teamwork at it's best!

We hope the recipients enjoyed the little treats. Our time together creating the
 jars of joy is always fun and delivering brings on a whole new adventure each year!
Thank you to the K's for joining us!


Thanks for stopping by!

Recipes were donated by Mrs. M.  They are listed below.


Strawberry Shortcake

1 boxed Yellow Cake Mix baked according to package directions
1 can vanilla frosting
1 (8 oz) whipped topping
1 quart fresh strawberries mixed with 1/4 cup sugar

Crumble the yellow cake mix into large chunks.  Press a small amount of the crumbled cake mix into the bottom of the four small canning jars (8 oz) In a small bowl mix together the frosting and whipped topping.  Spoon a small amount on top of the cake layer.  Spoon a few strawberries on top of the frosting layer, add another layer of cake, frosting and strawberries.
Top each jar with a lid and ring. Store in the fridge up to 12 hours before serving.

Easter Smores

Pour two heaping spoonfuls of graham cracker crumbs into a jar.
Place four Cadbury mini eggs on top of the graham crackers.
Put one Peep Chick on the Chocolate eggs.
Deliver with the directions to heat the jar in the microwave for 30 seconds and then enjoy.

This recipe calls to use 4 ounce jars but we used 8 ounce and did the layers twice.  You can also use a large marshmellow in place of the peeps that are sold during Easter time.
