Strawberry Shortcake Push Up Pops

By bellalimento |

We love strawberry shortcake in our house. As spring has sprung, what better dessert to treat the family with than a simple strawberry shortcake that’s been given a fun twist! Push Up Pops are all the rage and I’ve finally jumped on the bandwagon. I thought perhaps they might be fussy and complicated but they’re actually not at all. I found a great trick instead of cutting the cake portion into shapes to fit into those cute little dispensers I baked mine in mini muffin pans! Hello they’re the perfect size and no cutting involved! Use COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and this treat will come together in no time at all.

Once you make these Strawberry Shortcake Push Up Pops, you might not ever want to make it the traditional way again.  ; )

    I’ve been wanting to try push up cake pops! This looks way less sweet than the ones made with frosting, and way more delicious!

    These are really fun! I could totally see making these with kids and/or serving them at a kids party. Maybe mid-summer I’ll try them with blueberries, too!

    What an adorable idea for the summer!! Perfect for the family BBQ’s or like Amanda said, in the school lunches for the kids (as an awesome treat for nearing the end of school). Also, who doesn’t love fun food on sticks?
