This recipe is one of my family favorites! It’s absolutely addictive so just a warning there! It’s perfect for topping with fresh fruit, ice cream, whipped topping, etc for a refreshing little dessert. My brother and his wife are coming down to meet Blakely in a couple of weeks and these are on the menu! They’re SO good. I kind of can’t believe I haven’t already shared this recipe with you considering I’ve been doing this for 4 years! Remedying that NOW!
You can slice these babies up any way you like but I love little triangles for a unique, modern mini dessert. Of course a huge slab on a plate with a fork also works. Unless you’re working to get the baby weight off.
- Not keen on strawberries? No problem! Try blueberries, blackberries, raspberries.. you get the idea! In fact, try a mix of blueberries and strawberries for a patriotic dessert!
- Try topping these with ice cream instead of whipped topping for a cool treat!
- Birthday party coming up? Try “Sprinkle Shortcakes” and top these cuties with lots of colorful sprinkles!
