'Nutella Strawberry Shortcake Cups'
Source: Myself (though I'm sure I'm not the first person to think this up)
1 pound fresh strawberries
1 package of shortcake cakes (mine had 6 in the pack)
Whip cream (I used Cool Whip cause that's my favorite)
4 tablespoons of Nutella
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1. Slice the strawberries and place in a medium bowl. Add the sugar and lemon juice and stir to coat all the strawberries.Set aside.
2. Cut one of the shortcakes into large chunks. Place in the bottom of a large glass or Ball canning jar. Top with a couple spoonfuls of strawberries, one tablespoon of Nutella, the whip cream*. Top with half of a a chopped shortcake, another spoonful of strawberries, one tablespoon of Nutella and whip cream.
3. Garnish with a whole strawberry if desired. Makes 2 cups when placed in Ball jars. You can always do only one layer in a smaller glass and get a couple more.
*To make getting the whip cream into the cups less messy, I spoon a bunch of it into the corner of a plastic baggie, snip off a small piece of the corner, then use it as a pipping bag. MUCH cleaner than spooning it into the jars.*
