Dessert In A Jar! So Many Choices!

I need some help here!  My oldest child, Erik, is getting married in 2 weeks! Ahhhh! On one hand I’m thrilled and excited….and on the other…nervous and melancholy. But despite all that…the thing that has been weighing most heavily on my mind this week????  What to serve at the Open House! lol!

I’ve gone round and round and round again on WHAT to serve….then I finally decided on “dessert in a jar”! Love it! NOW I can’t decide what KIND of dessert in a jar!  I shouldn’t be surprised….but I really couldn’t believe how many great ideas are out there!
I would really LOVE to make them all….but since that really is quite impractical…I’m trying to narrow it down to about 4….maybe 5…different choices.

So I have posted pictures and links to all the delicious choices I’ve found. Please take a second and give me your opinion in the comments!  I will be FOREVER grateful!  :-)
