Nutella Strawberry Shortcake

Monday is here, and I am ready to cheer you up with some Nutella!  After such a great weekend, I need a little pick me up.  We had gorgeous weather.  There was  double header flag football games, a football team picnic, seeds and plants were put in the garden, and lots of basketball was played (my 8 year got a basketball hoop for his birthday).  So today definitely calls for Nutella

Today is the May #chocolateparty!  This month the pairing was chocolate and strawberries.  Chocolate dipped strawberries immediately came to mind, but I decided to think outside of the box.  Strawberry shortcake is one of my families favorite desserts, once strawberry season starts.  We usually only make it once a year with fresh strawberries that we pick.  But I started early this year 🙂  And I added Nutella 🙂

This time I used those dessert cake cups you find in the produce section at the grocery store.  I originally wanted to use angle food cake or pound cake, but I am am trying to eat healthier, and the cups were small portions for only 80 calories each.  But you can use whatever you like; including making your own shortcake.  If you use the store bought cake, this comes together in just a few minutes, and doesn’t involve the oven!  Perfect for those hot summer days, which I am sure are right around the corner!

Hey, there's not enough Nutella on there.

Kidding. :) It looks like the *perfect* amount of Nutella and I'm getting out of here before my husband sees it and starts begging...

PS - He loves to mention dinners, dishes and desserts every chance he gets. It's kind of bizarre. :D
