I love easy desserts! I love Valentine’s Day! This is a match made in heaven and it’s ready in less than 15 minutes. I used store bought ingredients because I needed this to be super quick (hey…a short cut is good sometimes). I made another super quick dessert using this same pound cake, but it’s more adult themed….you have to check out my boozy pound cake with orange liqueur creme. It’s to-die-for! But these heart-shaped, easy valentine’s desserts are perfect for the whole family.
Have you following all of my 15 Minute Suppers posts? They have been so much fun. Each week, I team up with some friends and share a meal that you can get on your table is only 15 minutes. Well, this week we decided it would be fun to a Valentine’s dessert themed challenge. So keep reading after the recipe to find links to a bunch of other quick desserts for Valentine’s Day!
I realize this strawberry shortcake isn’t the most original idea in the world, but using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to shape the cake into mini hearts and then layering everything creates an impressive yet super easy and scrumptious dessert!
So, this really isn’t a recipe, but more of a quick technique. Super easy!
Easy Desserts for Valentine’s Day
- 1 premade pound cake (usually found in the produce section)
- 1 clam shell strawberries
- 1 tub frozen whipped topping, thawed
- mini heart shaped cookie cutters
- mint for garish (opt)
- Slice pound cake into 1/2 inch slices and cut with heart shaped cookie cutter. Repeat two more times for each serving. Each serving needs three heart pieces.
- Wash and dry strawberries and cut into tiny pieces (about the size of an pencil eraser).
- Place one piece of cake on each serving plate, scoop a small spoonful of strawberries on top and then top with whipped topping. Repeat two more times. Garnish with extra strawberries and mint leaves.
