Strawberry Pound Cake Kabobs With Chocolate Drizzle #SundaySupper #FLStrawberry

This post is sponsored by Florida Strawberry in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

I don’t know about you, but as soon as Florida strawberry season is here, I can’t help but do a little strawberry dance! These red gems of juicy goodness are the perfect portable bite and they can be eaten anytime anyplace. Just wash and eat!

You may not know this, but Florida strawberries are actually harvested in the winter.  Yep, it is true! These beauties are available from November through April so we can enjoy them regardless of the weather outside!

If you don’t see Florida strawberries carried at your local grocery store, be sure to ask your produce or store manager. You will be glad you did. There is nothing like a Florida strawberry!

Not only are Florida strawberries delicious, they are also packed full of nutritional benefits. Strawberries are virtually fat free, have no cholesterol, and did you know that just 8 medium strawberries contain more Vitamin C than one orange? Click here for more nutritional info.

When I bought my first pound of Florida strawberries this year I was torn what to do with them. They were so sweet! I made a few smoothies, dipped some in chocolate and of course just ate them by themselves! I knew that I wanted to create an extra special treat with these beauties so I decided to make Strawberry Pound Cake Kabobs With Chocolate Drizzle. This is such a fun and easy recipe and a great use of strawberries! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner these would be the perfect nutrient-packed treat that anyone is sure to love! 

Strawberry Pound Kabobs With Chocolate Drizzle

Ingredients:

Pound cake cut into small cubes. I made my own, but you can use store bought as well.

Florida Strawberries washed and cut into half-sized pieces

Melting chocolates

Kabob or skewer sticks

Directions: 

Place a piece of strawberry on a skewer, then a cube of pound cake. Alternate back and forth until you have done this several times per each skewer.

Melt your favorite chocolate in the microwave and drizzle over the finished skewers.

Serve and enjoy! You won’t be able to eat just one! The juice from the Florida strawberries mixed with the pound cake and chocolate is oh-so amazing! 

Additionally, you can enter the #FLStrawberryCapContest for your own Strawberry Cap and you could win a Florida getaway with your family at the gorgeous Trade Winds Islands Resorts on St. Pete Beach! How much fun would that be? You can see all of the details to the contest HERE.

INGREDIENTS:

1 pre-made Graham Cracker Pie Shell

1 8oz. block of Cream Cheese softened to room temperature

1 (12.5 ounce) bag Fun Size Butterfinger candy bars, crushed

1 12oz. container of Cool Whip

 

DIRECTIONS:

Reserve 1/2 of the crushed Butterfinger Candy Bars.

Mix together the Softened Cream Cheese, Cool Whip and Crushed Butterfinger Bars. I used a hand mixer to make sure that everything is incorporated together.

Place mixture in the pre-made Graham Cracker Crust.

Sprinkle the reserved Crushed Butterfinger Bars on the top of the pie.

Refrigerate for at least two hours or until ready to serve. This tastes even better the longer that it sets.

Enjoy! You will not be able to stop at one piece! 

Easy 5 Ingredient Chocolate Eclair Cake

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

One of my all-time favorite desserts growing up was Chocolate Eclair Cake. The rich chocolatey topping with the smooth pudding and graham crackers all marry together to form one yummy dessert! My friend Charity introduced me to this recipe that only requires 5 ingredients. This dessert will knock your socks off! And, the longer it sets in the refrigerator the better it gets! This is definitely a crowd-pleasing dessert and perfect for a potluck! It is also very frugal recipe. I purchased all of the ingredients for this dessert at Aldi for under $5!

INGREDIENTS:

2 small boxes of Instant Vanilla Pudding

1 8oz. container of Cool Whip

3 Cups of Whole Milk

1 box of Graham Crackers

1 Tub of Milk Chocolate Frosting

 

DIRECTIONS:

Grease a 9X13 pan with butter.

Mix the 2 boxes of pudding and the 3 cups of milk in a large bowl for about 2 minutes. Fold in the container of Cool Whip.

Place a layer of Graham Crackers in the Pan.

Layer half of the Pudding/Cool Whip mixture over the Graham Crackers.

Place another layer of Graham Crackers over the Pudding Mixture.

Add the remaining Pudding Mixture over the Graham Crackers.

Lastly, place one more layer of Graham Crackers on top of the Pudding/Cool Whip mixture.

Heat the Chocolate Frosting in the Microwave for about 20-30 seconds to soften it.

Place the Choclate Frosting over the last layer of Graham Crackers and spread it evenly across like you are frosting a cake.

Chill in the Refrigerator for at least 4-5 hours. I find that if you let this set overnight in the refrigerator that it tastes even better!
