Strawberry Sparkles

I love strawberries, they even may be my favorite fruit. There really isn't a strawberry recipe that I will turn down. So when I was scrambling my brain and the internet for a dessert idea for my friend's BBQ I thought Strawberry Sparkles. Such a simple recipe and quick. Both things that I love, since my baking skills are still developing. 


4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
4 teaspoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup white sugar
2 drops red food coloring
1 pint fresh strawberries

    In a small bowl, beat together cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Chill 2 hours in refrigerator.

    Side note and funny story, confectioners sugar and granulated sugar are not the same. Yes sugars still to this day can trick me. So I ended up putting granulated and confectioners sugar in my mix. The end product just came out a little more grainy then what it should have been. Still Yummy all the same!

    Stir together white sugar and food coloring. Dip strawberries in cream cheese mixture, then in tinted sugar. Refrigerate until serving.

    This recipe was a snap to make and a simple dessert to take to any get together. I didn't hear any complaints from the crowd at the party. They were yummy!
