Kilner Jar Salted Caramel Banoffee Pie

Recipe makes 4 small jars or 2 big ones:


  • 125g Crushed Digestive biscuits
  • 50g Salted butter, melted
  • 1 tin ready made caramel
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 bananas
  • 150ml double cream, lightly whipped
  • Grated dark chocolate
  • Cocoa powder


  1. Blitz the biscuits in a food processor, add the melted butter and blitz again. If you don’t have a food processor, pop the biscuits in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush. Mix with the butter in a bowl.
  2. Fill the bottom of your Kilner jars with the biscuit base and leave to cool in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the jars from the fridge. Empty the caramel into a bowl and add a pinch of sea salt. Mix with a spoon until the caramel starts to warm and loosen. Spread the caramel over the biscuit bases and leave to chill in the fridge for a few hours.
  4. When you’re ready to serve, slice up the bananas and scatter over each. Whip the double cream until thick and heavy then layer over the bananas.
  5. Finish by sprinkling the dark chocolate over the cream and a light dusting of cocoa powder.

Peppermint Marshmallow Hot Chocolate in Your Favourite Kilner Jar

There is nothing better to keep warm during those cold winter nights than a sweet comforting cup of hot chocolate.

There are so many delicious flavours you can add to cocoa, but our favourite has to be peppermint.

Peppermint Marshmallow Hot Chocolate in Your Favourite Kilner Jar

You will need

Per cup of hot chocolate

2 candy canes

Peppermint flavouring

Hot chocolate powder




Heat one and a half cups of milk, in a small saucepan over a low heat.

After a couple of minutes, add 2 tablespoons of hot chocolate and stir frequently.

While the milk is gently heating, crush the candy canes using a kitchen towel and a rolling pin. Add the crushed sweet to the hot chocolate.

Next add a couple of drops of peppermint flavouring.

Once the hot chocolate begins to simmer, remove from the heat. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes.

Pour the hot chocolate into your favourite Kilner jar, drop in a couple of marshmallows  and enjoy.

TOP TIP: Add a couple marshmallows on the side for more sweetness.

Do not pour hot liquids into cold Kilner jars!
