Strawberry Whipped Cream Santa Treats

60720_327520874027434_1397626496_nAnother very easy treat. Cut tops off of strawberries. Toss these and then cut the tip off but keep these.  Pipe whipped cream and place cap back on top of this. Place two dots of whipped cream to make buttons. Then top the cap with whipped cream to make a puff on Santa’s hat. With the tip of a toothpick touch the whipped cream with a dot of black food coloring. Serve.

Jello Red, White and Blue Treats

946507_658314530865305_647629302_nUse disposable clear cups and make blue jello – pour to almost one-third level and chill. Repeat with a cool whip layer and then a red layer of jello. Chill. You can add fresh (wash and dry before using) in the blue layer before it has thickened completely. Before serving add a whipped topping and one blueberry to the top.

Dream Cake

D

1 pkg. devil’s food, chocolate, or German chocolate cake mix
1 can sweetened condensed milk
caramel ice cream topping
1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
4-5 Health or Skor bars, chopped up

Bake cake according to package directions for a 9×13 inch pan; cool for about 5 minutes.

Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes into the cake. Let the cake cool for a little while.

Slowly pour sweetened condensed milk over the cake, letting it sink into the holes; then drizzle some of the caramel over the top of the cake.

(Some people I know heat the milk and caramel together and then pour it over the cake…. I’ve tried it both ways … no real preference here)

Let cake cool completely. Top cake with whipped topping. Decorate the top of the cake with candy bar chunks and swirls of caramel topping. Refrigerate before serving. (Great to make one evening and serve the next.)

DO NOT EVEN MENTION CALORIE COUNT HERE – it exceeds all limits, but wonderfully quick dessert for company and delicious with a cup of coffee!
