Coastal Carolina Shrimp and Cheddar Grits Cakes

While I was visiting Charleston, South Carolina, I had the privilege of learning all about the regional classic low-country dish, shrimp and grits. It's wonderful for sharing with guests in that casual, coastal Carolina way.

These Mason jars filled with sautéed bananas, bittersweet chocolate and graham crackers are topped with flambéed marshmallow crème and are such fun to serve when girlfriends come over for a big catch-up visit.
