I love to cook. I love to bake even more. I also love to have my baked goodies looking pretty. Hee hee. And I am one of those who firmly believe that there is always room for dessert…other than fruits. I know it’s wrong but I don’t really count fruits as dessert. Haha. :D Then again, not all of us have the luxury of time to whip something up in the kitchen.
Here’s something quick that you can prepare for dessert, a snack, or a picnic but will nevertheless wow your targeted eaters…Petite Brownie Bites!
You need only three things: store-bought mini brownie cups, frozen whipped topping that has been thawed and sliced fresh strawberries. A fourth thing you will need, lest I forget, is a teeny weeny bit of creativity.
For this project, I got the brownie cups from Costco. The whipped topping I used is a store-brand, Hill Country Fair, which I now prefer over Kraft because in my opinion, it is stiffer.
All you have to do is top the brownie cups with a dallop of whipped cream and a slice of strawberry and tadah, you have yourself some treats that not only tickle the tummy but also the eyes. ;)
I made these for dessert during a beach holiday with our friends. The little girls were the first to make a bee line for ’em, while most of the adults had their eyes set on the leche flan which I made in advance. :) A few others liked the fresh cantaloupe slices, which, like I said, don’t really count. Haha! :P
