Rum and Chocolate Cake in a Jar
Desserts like this one, while look fancy, are easy to make and the taste – well let’s just say the jars will be squeaky clean! The key to making this cake scrumptious is to use good-quality ingredients and that means using chocolate that contains 70% cocoa. Do not use milk chocolate in this recipe as it is less suitable for baking.
Chocolate comes from yellow pods that hang from the cocoa tree. If you’ve never had the opportunity to see a cocoa pod, they’re huge! Last year my daughter and I visited Mast Brothers Chocolate in Brooklyn.
