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. ; )
