To Go Pavlova In A Jar

Do you happen to fall into that category of people who have their house decked out in ALL the holiday regalia weeks before Thanksgiving?

Or, do you happen to fall into the other category of people who wait until after Thanksgiving to begin holiday festivities?

My daughter and I happen to fall into the former category. November dawns, and the itch begins.

The itch to pull out The Tree, and check out our little collection of ornaments we’ve collected from places we travel to, and to bake ALL the cookies, pies and cakes AND (sometimes) to eat ALL the cookies, pies and cakes, AND … the list goes on and on and on!

Marie Callender’s® Double Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake and Pavlova and Preferred if available -

Most years we try to hold off for as long as possible before we scratch that itch. But, this year, seeing it was our first holiday season in our new little condo, the itch had to be scratched that first week of November!

Pavlova Layered Dessert

However, the downside to all that early scratching is that when the holidays are finally here, we have had our fill of cookies and cakes and pies and would rather have something a bit lighter and easier for dessert and that’s where today’s dessert comes into play.

Marie Callender’s® Double Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

You see, these little layered desserts AKA To Go Pavlova In A Jar, are so easy to pull together and so versatile.

I picked up Marie Callender’s® Double Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake from my neighborhood Kroger store and decided to serve it alongside Reddi-Wip® Real Whipped Cream and Reddi-Wip® Extra Creamy Real Whipped Cream (which seem to be always lurking in the back of our fridge and challenging us to partner it with ALL the things).

To Go Pavlova In A Jar - Step 1

While you are at your local Kroger or Kroger banner store, make sure to grab some canisters of Reddi-Wip® Real Whipped Cream.

It is, after all, the perfect partner for our favorite holiday recipes! Reddi-Wip® is the real cream alternative to the non-dairy frozen toppings that are made with oils. And, with 15 calories per serving, it is indulgent without the guilt!

To Go Pavlova In A Jar - Step 2

Getting back to this mini To Go Pavlova In A Jar, I used to wonder what the main difference was between pavlova and meringues, well (thanks to trusty ‘ol Google), a meringue usually consists of 2 main ingredients: egg whites and sugar, while a pavlova calls for 4: egg whites, sugar, vinegar and cornflour. While meringues are crispy throughout, pavlova have a soft and creamy center.

To Go Pavlova In A Jar - Step 3

I didn’t use much flavoring in these mini pavlova – in fact, they are a basic recipe found all over. These pavlova are made with:
• 4 egg whites (hand whipped because my electric hand beater literally blew up),
• 3/4 cup castor sugar,
• 2 teaspoons corn flour,
• And, 1 teaspoon vinegar.

They are layered together with Marie Callender’s® Double Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake, Reddi-Wip® Real Whipped Cream, and a slew of berries!

Placed in mason jars of varying sizes, we get to enjoy the quantity we prefer and if our holiday meal was just too filling, we get to take these to go! Now, dessert to-go is always a plus after any holiday get-together ~ don’t ya think?

    Right now I am hating myself. I bought a dozen (12) desert glasses to make a deconstructed pavlova aka Curt. Well not actually. I am so chuffed for finding this BRILLIANT idea. GOOGLE really is yor friend, especially when you Google BEFORE you start planning anyhting!

    I have numerous brand new, unused, canning bottles which will really put a spin on things. Well, they certainly are going to put a spin on things now since I can make them up before I leave for the Christmas luncheon. Way easier to transport if i do make them ahead of time (which I will be doing. Now it is not necessary for me to ferry a dozen containers with all the ingredients in various containers. (Alas I bought a bunch of containers today!)Also, now I don’t have to suddenly leave the festivities around the pool and table and disappear into the kitchen. I also now have the opportunity of decorating the bottles, and even of personalizing the desserts.

    Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU.

    Bless you. May you have the best Christmas ever!!!

    I have been looking for one such layered recipe for a while to serve to my guests. Looks like my wait is over. That pavlova and chocolate loaf cake put together in layers of some scrummy creams. I want nothing more. Thanks for sharing these.

  5. Adina says:

    We always put up the decoration on the 1st of December, German tradition I suppose. And it is also the time to start the cookie baking, but you are right, after the first week of inhaling any cookie that comes our way, we are kind of satisfied now and they lay quietly in the cookie box. What a simple and delicious dessert, I love anything with meringues and whipped cream. 🙂

  6. What a fantastic idea to put pavlova in a jar Shashi! I love it!

    As soon as December 1st comes round Lynne and I start looking at all the houses round about us to see who has their decorations up. Then when we see that’s there’s quite a few with their trees and lights up around their houses we look to do the same. We’re just a bit scared about being first there! Ha ha!

    Hope you both have an amazing Christmas! (Looks like you’ve got plenty of cakes to see if through 😉 )

  7. What a fun dessert idea, Shashi! I can’t say I’ve ever made pavlova, but it’s on the list for sure. And then the twist of making pavlova in a jar? Talk about a fun dessert to pull out if you have company over to visit during the holidays! We are definitely on the decorating bandwagon here, too. And it all starts with Halloween. October 1 is a happy day in our house as that’s the day I pull out all of the Halloween decorations…and it’s just a simple case of switching the decorations up as each holiday rolls around! Hope you gals are enjoying the season…and I hope that blackout at Hartsfield-Jackson didn’t mess with your travel plans. Umph.

    These little jars are genius. Nice Job Shashi!! So pretty and so easy. I happen to fall into the latter camp re: Christmas decorating. No Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Ha ha. I am always amazed at people like you who can pull off Thanksgiving AND Christmas simultaneously. I would love to see your new condo all decked out. I know you’ll have the perfect Christmas! XO

  9. Such a cute idea! That chocolate loaf looks out of this world too.

  10. this is such an adorable idea for a treat or a get together!

  11. I juuuuust put up our decorations this past weekend…though, the outside is yet to be completed, but I better get to it cos we have a party for family at our house Saturday! I know it’ll get done…that’s what I keep telling myself, lol.
    I love the idea of this grab and go dessert. All of those layers are PERFECT. I’m thinking these would be lovely for our party too…everyone has a nice individual dessert (or two 😉 ). Have a great weekend, my friend! XOXO
