STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BITES

A couple of years ago, I made these Little Lemon Drops and they instantly became one of my favorite recipes ever! I then created an orange version and with Valentine’s Day coming up, I just couldn’t resist making a strawberry version. These are such a fun dessert to take to a party – they are easy to make and the recipe makes over 70 little bite-sized treats that are easy to serve!

STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM BITES
1 box strawberry cake mix cake mix
1 pkg (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups sour cream (or greek yogurt)
1/2 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 325.  Coat mini muffin tins with cooking spray.  (I used almost 3 full pans of 24).  Beat the ingredients in a large bowl with an electric mixer for several minutes until blended and smooth.  Fill each muffin hole about 1/2 full.  I used a small cookie scoop and it worked perfectly!  Bake for about 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the pan on a wire rack for about 2 minutes and then turn the muffin pan over on a wire rack so that all the muffins are upside down.  Cool completely and once all the batter is cooked, you can make the glaze.
Glaze: 
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp strawberry extract
2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup hot water
Place the wire racks over waxed paper.  Beat the glaze ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth.  Dip muffins in glaze to coat the bottoms (which are now the tops!) and the sides and let the excess drip off back into the bowl.  Place each strawberry bite back on the wire racks until the glaze is set.  Make sure to eat a few before placing them out for others or you’ll never get to try one!  Enjoy!

  1. I am planning to make the strawberry and cream bites as well as the orange and the lemon versions. They look wonderful. I have a 24 mini-muffin pan and 2 -12 mini muffin pans, but I have found that the spray coating doesn’t keep things from sticking very well. Any other ideas other than a Crisco-soaked paper towel to wipe each one?

    • Have you tried the non-stick spray specifically for baking? It’s found in the same section as the other non-stick sprays, but it’s a lot more effective for baked goods like this!

      • Have not tried the baking non-stick spray but I sure will.

        Regarding the strawberry extract – have never looked for this – am I looking for imitation strawberry extract or am I to hunt fir the real strawberry extract?

        • I think they’re all imitation at this point! I find Walmart has the best selection of extracts- they’re by the spices.
