Growing up in Florida, right outside of Plant City, means lots of strawberries all Spring and Summer! You can even go to U-Pick farms and pick them by the flat! As any normal fan of strawberry shortcake, I wanted something a bit more in depth. My son and I are both very much fans of strawberry shortcake so this was a test to see how much strawberry goodness I could pack in to one wine glass..yes…one wine glass. A single serving dessert portion! You can of course always resort to a normal but darling trifle serving glass as well.
The recipe will serve (1) but can be easily duplicated over and over and over again…it stores in the fridge for a day or two as well.
- Strawberry Cake Mix (Any brand)
- Oil, Water, Eggs (per box instructions)
- 8 large strawberries
- 3-4 mini Snickers bite sized candies
- Cool Whip
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Chocolate syrup
- Bake strawberry cake as directed by box, I prefer to create cupcakes as these are perfect sizes
- Create your strawberry sauce: Chop 4 strawberries finely, heat pan to medium, stir in 1 tsbp sugar, slowly stir for up to 10 minutes to create a juicy strawberry sauce
- Chop Snickers bites in to tiny pieces
- Cut remaining 4 strawberries in to slices/chunks
- Crumble up one strawberry cake/cupcake portion
- Start layering: cake, strawberry slices, snickers pieces, cool whip, chocolate sauce, and strawberry sauce.
- You should be able to get two thin layers of each in a wine/single service trifle dish. Top it off with all excess strawberry sauce, Snickers bites, and a strawberry slice.
- It is recommended to eat right away but can be stored in fridge, please note you will want it to get to near room temperature as the Snickers bites can be a bit tough to eat if cold.
