A few weeks ago I made Lemon Cream Pie Push Pops and was surprised by how well they went over! Many of my readers were asking where I found the push pops and where I got the idea. I have seen many bloggers using these recently and even found a book in library on fun push pop ideas! I bought the actual push pops at a local baking supply shop, Make-A-Cake in Pittsburgh.
This week the theme for #SundaySupper is April Showers. We are making foods appropriate for baby and bridal showers. I love individual desserts for parties because it makes serving them so much easier. I thought another round of push pops were in order and I wanted to do something that was easy to make but really pretty on display. When thinking of spring and summer I wanted to do something with strawberries and strawberry shortcake was the first thing that came to my mind.
These are simple to make and the recipe can be doubled, tripled, or quadrupled to fit any size party. They are made with pound cake, strawberries, and Cool Whip. I really couldn't be any easier! They look really festive and fun as well. Be sure to give these a try for your next shower or party!
Straberry Shortcake Push Pops (A Hezzi-D original)
1 c. strawberries, sliced thin
2 T. sugar
1 c. Cool Whip
2 c. pound cake, cut in to cubes (I made my own but you can use store bought!)
6 push pop container
1. In a small bowl toss the strawberries with the sugar.
2. Stand the push pop containers up in a holder, jar, or box. Place several pieces of pound cake in the bottoms then layers several strawberries.
3. Put the Cool Whip in a zip top baggie and snip off the end. Pipe a healthy amount of Cool Whip into each container.
4. Continue layering the ingredients in this order until you reach the top of the push pop. Put an extra dollop of Cool Whip on top. Place a whole strawberry in the Cool Whip if desired.
5. Refrigerate, keeping the push pops upright, until ready to serve.
