I went to a craft fair and saw this cute design for smores in a jar. I asked the lady that was selling them at the craft fair what the ingredients were in the jars because I wanted to share with my online followers. She was more than happy to tell me how they were made, under one condition, I purchased one of hers.
I did purchase one because I was curious how she made them. Besides, it wasn’t that much for me to spend and it was supporting something homemade and from the heart. Always a great cause!
