Chocolate Mason Jar cakes

Desserts are always such a huge hit in our home but sometimes I don’t want an entire cake lying around for the kids and myself to gobble up.  I’ve been venturing into the Duncan Hines Perfect Sized Cakes lately and I’m in love with them.  The mixing, baking and frosting is so easy and I wanted to give it a unique twist to turn it into something more.  My 5 year old son and I decided to make Chocolate Mason Jar Cakes and they turned out so good!
