Mini Strawberry Shortcake Bites! Easy and addictively delicious!!

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.

COURTNEY’S TIPS

  • 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!

  1. these are great little bites for a summer party!

  2. So this looks like a great recipe to try for my colleagues. Can I make them the night before? Will they still taste just good? If so, should I prepare the cake the night before and add the toppings the next morning?

    1. yes! Make the cake the day before (cut into squares or whatnot) and add toppings before serving.

        1. It does not need to be, no!

    1. Thank you so much Julie!!

  3. Making them right now! (:
    Where do you buy the little star flag toothpics?

    1. I got those at Michael’s! Check there or JoAnn’s or other craft stores! OR make your own with scrapbook paper!

  4. These look tasty. What size box of Betty Crocker pound cake mix is needed?

    1. I’ll check the next time I’m at the store and reply here again but I believe there is only one size of Betty Crocker Pound Cake Mix.
