Did you know that STRAWBERRY Marshmallow Fluff existed? I had no idea until I saw it in the World Market section at Bed Bath and Beyond the other day. I immediately grabbed a jar off the shelf.
I wish I hadn’t.
…that I had grabbed three or four! It’s SO GOOD!! You know the first thing I had to do was make a fluffernutter sandwich, right? Did you grow up on these things too? Gooey marshmallow and peanut butter slathered onto good old white bread. I could have eaten one every day for lunch and never gotten tired of it.
Of course, I had to take it up a notch. We are talking about STRAWBERRY Fluff, people. And what goes with strawberry?? That’s right – chocolate!
It’s Monday morning, and I’m pretty sure that you know how to make a sandwich so I am going to spare you the directions. Strawberry Fluff, your favorite chocolate nut spread (I used Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams but I am thinking Nutella would be AWESOME with this) and white bread are all you need to make this fun Valentine’s Day treat.
The kids will love this and so will you because strawberry and chocolate, that’s why. Now pardon me while I go continue eating this Strawberry Fluff straight out of the jar.
‘Tis the season for all things red and pink so I’ve hopped onto the bandwagon and made you some strawberries and cream cupcakes!
Even if you don’t like Valentine’s Day you’ll be sure to fall in love with these cupcakes. Sweet strawberry cupcakes, frosting made with heavy cream AND a strawberries and cream truffle stuffed into the center? Good stuff.
These cupcakes are really easy to make! Bake up a batch of your favorite strawberry cupcakes (I used a boxed mix) and a minute or two after you take them out of the oven unwrap a truffle and just push it down through the top of the cupcake. I used Lindt Lindor Strawberries and Cream truffles but you could use white, milk or dark chocolate truffles too. Any kind of chocolate + strawberries = yum. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, frost them with this:
Butter Cream Frosting (adapted from Butter Cream Frosting II on allrecipes.com)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups confectioners sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
Cream butter and shortening in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add all other ingredients and beat well.
