INGREDIENTS…

3/4 cup butter softened

1/4 cup sugar

2 cups flour

small jar of hot fudge

1 package – 10 ounces frozen strawberries with sugar- thaw, drain, and reserve liquid.

1 cup of heavy whipping cream

3 ounce package strawberry jello

Strawberries

Ghiradelli’s Melting Wafers

FOR SHORTBREAD…

Mix butter, sugar, and flour until well combined.

Chill 15-30 minutes.

Roll out 1/3″ thick and cut out.  Find a glass that will cut a circle the size to fit in the bottom of your muffin tins.  Our glass was bout 2 1/4″.

FOR BAVARIAN CREAM…

Add cold water to reserved syrup to make 3/4 cup and stir into jello.

Chill jello until almost set. (About 45 minutes)

Spoon jello cream into muffin cups on top of the hot fudge and chill for a minimum of 2 hours before placing chocolate covered strawberries on top.

Melt Ghiradelli’s chocolate and dip strawberries.  Place dipped strawberries on parchment or wax paper until you are ready to top Bavarian Cream.

TIPS…

Keep Bavarian Cream Cups in fridge until serving.  Will keep up to 2 days.

Keep in freezer for up to 6 weeks without chocolate covered  strawberries.

To save time you could buy store bought shortbread cookies- I love Lorna Doones:)  You could also use 10 ounces of cool whip instead of whipping cream.
