Valentine's Strawberry Angel Food Cake Shooters ♥

Here is a supercute and healthy dessert for valentines day! or any day! enjoy! ♥

Fresh strawberries, angel food cake, cream cheese flavored whipped cream and a home made strawberry glaze…what could be bad. These little trifles are sweet, light, beautiful and truly decadent.

Ingredients ♥

1 large angel food cake (you’ll only need about 2/3)
For the Custard
1 8oz package fat free cream cheese, softened
1 14oz can low sugar sweetened condensed milk
1 12oz tub low sugar fat free Cool Whip, thawed
For the Glaze
1 1/2 cup sugar i use imitation( sugar in the raw)
5 tablespoons corn starch
5 tablespoons strawberry gelatin powder (I used sugar free Jell-O)
1 1/2 cup water
3 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
Additional chopped strawberries (about 1 cup) and fresh mint for garnish.

Directions ♥

Make the glaze by combining the sugar, corn starch, gelatin and water into a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until combined and thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
While the glaze cools, cut the angel food cake into slices and then into 1 inch cubes.
To make the custard mix together the cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk and cool whip into a medium bowl until well combined. No need to use a mixer, just good ole’ elbow grease and a wooden spoon works great.
Once the glaze is cooled, gently mix in the 3 cups of chopped strawberries. Now its time to assemble.
In your small plastic cups start with 2-3 cubes of cake. Then top the cake with about 2 tablespoons of the glaze with strawberries then a dollop of the sweetened cream mixture. Repeat with layers of cake, glaze and cream. Be sure to smooth the layers of cream after each addition, pressing down the layers as you smooth.
Allow to chill covered in the fridge for at least 4 hours. The longer they sit to allow the flavors and layers to come together, the better.
Just before serving top with strawberries and a little mint.
Makes about 22 mini trifles. enjoy! ♥
