You all know that I’ve been fortunate enough to finally have the chance to get back in the kitchen recently, and I have been having so much fun! I’ve made some amazing brownies to share with you soon, and used up extra Easter candy. I’m blessed to have a few more blogging friends to share sweet treats with you, though…and I’m so glad because my refrigerator died yesterday! Now I can’t open it, in the hopes that the food in there won’t spoil before a handy man can fix it. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I get to bake again by tomorrow, but until then, you guys just have to meet my guest poster today.
I’m so excited to introduce you to my sweet and talented friend Glory from Glorious Treats. Glory has done some of the most fun party ideas I’ve ever seen, the most creative cookies, and absolutely beautiful, but still easy cupcakes! She is brilliantly creative, and oh so talented.
You have to check her out, so you can become as obsessed with her as I am.
Thank you, Glory, for guest posting today! I’m so lucky to have you here!
Hi Bakingdom readers! I’m Glory of Glorious Treats filling in today while Darla is busy setting up her kitchen and home. I know that whenever I move it takes me about 2 years to unpack every last box… hopefully Darla is a bit more organized than me! Now where is that spatula…
Today I have a super simple dessert perfect for enjoying the bounty of strawberries available in spring and summer. I love finding ways to dress up traditional desserts and make them into something extra special. Brownies are always a crowd favorite (and certainly a favorite of mine!). This dessert layers brownies, whipped cream and fresh strawberries in small glasses to create a sweet, individual dessert. I love preparing desserts in individual dishes, there is just something a little extra special about getting a pretty little dessert all to yourself!
Let’s get started…
Brownies- Prepare a batch of brownies using your favorite box mix (for a 8″x8″ pan), or a scratch recipe such as Darla’s Best Brownies. Allow the brownies to fully cool, then cut into small (about 3/4 inch) squares.
Whipped Cream- Using 1 cup of cold heavy cream (often labeled heavy whipping cream), whip until it begins to thicken. While mixing, add 1-2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Continue to beat until desired consistency is reached. Be carefully not to over-beat.
Strawberries- Dice 1 pint of fresh strawberries.
Assembly- Layer brownie bites, strawberries and whipped cream in individual dishes. I used small (5 oz) juice glasses. Individual trifle dishes would work great as well. The ingredient quantities above will produce 6 small desserts (with brownie left over). Feel free to adjust the quantities as needed. If desired, Cool Whip may be substituted for the whipped cream.
