Strawberry Shortcake Shooters

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

There’s a fantastic trend hitting restaurants and foodie websites and you’re two seconds away from enjoying it yourself. Dessert shooters — teensy little two-bite tastes of decadent desserts — are the hottest way to serve up a sweet treat without all the calories and time requirements that go into the making of a big, huge hunk of calorie-laden goodies.

With the summer season right around the corner, why not whip up a batch of everyone’s favorite seasonal sweet — Strawberry Shortcake — in a perfectly pint-sized package: Strawberry Shortcake Shooters!

Here’s how:

Strawberry Dessert Recipe

Bake a white Betty Crocker cake according to package directions. Since that one cake will yield about 20 of these little dessert shooters, try cutting the cake in half and freezing the second portion for one of those days when you’ve got to pull something snappy and spectacular together fast.

Pull the cake into small pieces and press a small portion of cake into the bottom of 10 small shot glasses. If you’re using large shot glasses, you’ll be able to make about 6.

Fresh Strawberry Dessert

In a small bowl, combine 1-½ cups of finely diced strawberries with ¼ cup of sugar. Spoon a small amount of this strawberry mixture over the cake layer in each glass. You’ll see the strawberry juices start to trickle down that bottom layer of cake. Amazing. Stay strong. Don’t lick your fingers until the appropriate moment.

Now top the strawberry layer with a second layer of cake. It’s really starting to look good now, but you’re seconds away from taking this treat totally over the top.

That’s right. Pop a dollop of whipped topping over the cake. Don’t go easy. The more the merrier in this case.

Now would be an appropriate time to lick fingers. Or sneak a shooter. This recipe makes enough for nine, right?

Garnish each shot glass with a small, whole strawberry. Serve the shooters immediately, or refrigerate them until ready to serve, up to 1 hour. (Refrigerating them any longer will leave you a messy mush of cake at the bottom.)
