Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Pin It

It's National Strawberry Day! Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. There are so many delicious ways to enjoy them, and so easy to incorporate into baking as they pair nicely with chocolate, vanilla, cakes, puddings, and pretty much anything sweet... Now, I've made strawberry cheesecake cupcakes, but the best part about this recipe is that it requires NO baking! You can even skip the no-bake cheesecake filling recipe below and fill your strawberries with some left over cheesecake. These cheesecake stuffed strawberries are a great alternative to other sweets because you have the option to make them as "lite" or "low-fat" as you want!

Almond Joy Cake (vegan)

Pin It

One of my best friends is vegan so she doesn't eat eggs, milk, or butter... some pretty common ingredients in a cake. So when her birthday rolled around I wanted to make her a birthday cake she would love! With a few substitutions, I made a completely vegan chocolate almond cake with vegan coconut cream cheese frosting.

Even though I am a huge chocolate lover, these are one of my favorite cupcakes! Baked right on top of a buttery brown sugar graham crust, stuffed with strawberry filling, topped with a smooth cream cheese frosting, and finished with a ripe juicy strawberry, these cupcakes the ultimate indulgence.

Cherry Cheesecake Brownie Bites

Pin It

These tiny little layered treats are such an amazing party treat or any-time dessert. The best way to describe them would be if a batch of brownies, a cheesecake and a cherry pie all fell into a mini cupcake pan and had babies in the oven. They are THAT good! The buttery brown sugar crust is layered with a fudgy chocolate brownie center, topped with rich, creamy cheesecake filling and finished off with a sweet cherry topping... pure decadence!

These bite sized cakewiches are a great cupcake alternative for Valentine's Day. They are perfect for sticking in lunch boxes, Valentine goody bags and more since the frosting is neatly sandwiched between 2 little heart cakes and covered in sprinkles, there is less mess than a cupcake but with all the sweetness.
