These sweet little Valentine’s Day Treats are simple to make. You know I like creating easy desserts that look impressive. I started with a Duncan Hines Signature Pink Velvet Cake Mix, added Cool Whip Whipped Topping in between the layers and topped them with sprinkles and Red Velvet M&M’s.

There are several different options for serving cupcakes in jar. These jars are 1/2 pint mason jars. You will need 2 cupcakes for each jar and it took a full 8 oz container of Cool Whip to fill 5 jars.  I love the way they look and are definitely perfect to add a lid and give as a gift, but perhaps a little too much if you are serving them after dinner.

You can also bake the cupcake right in the jars, but since I wanted several layers, I choose to bake them as I normally do, then cut them in half. To add the Cool Whip to the jar it’s easiest to add it to a Decorator Bag, then you can pipe it easily into the jar.

Adding red M&M’s candies and sprinkles to the top is optional, but of course fun!
