I want to make this wonderful and refreshing looking dessert. Where can I find those adorable cars?

Hi there! You can probably find jars like this at your local craft store. They are also often sold in supermarkets. Hope this helps!

I love to make little desserts in those jars. They make a great grab and go snack for the kids and are a little bit "extra special" as my son would say. Plus since I am trying to cut down on my sweets, they are great for portion control - so I don't sit there and keep eating more of this delicious stuff!

Key lime pie is one of my family's favorites. I love these for a cute single-serve option. Yummy!

These are so cute to serve at a party. I really want to try these.

I loved, loved, loved this! Besides the fact that they taste AMAZING, I love the idea of putting the pie into jars. It is such a clever presentation!

I love this idea. The pie was so good and the crumbled graham cracker was the perfect consistency. The "crust" is always the determining factor when I judge a pie. Thumbs up all around. So stinking cute!
