Tuesday Treat

 A couple of years ago I started a tradition of bringing a treat to share with my co-workers each Monday.  We all look forward to "Monday Treats".  For me the reward is that I get to bring something in to share with a most appreciative group....and I also get to "share" the calories....that way, I get a share, but don't over the course of the week end up eating a whole cake....pie.....whatever.   And who doesn't need something to look forward to on Mondays?  This week however, the Monday holiday meant that the treat was moved to Tuesday....and I was looking for something red, white and blue.  Sorry I didn't get a picture of these plated....this was when I was ready to pop them back in the refrigerator for about an hour before I left for work.

I figured that cream stuffed strawberries topped with blueberries fit the bill just perfectly!  Don't you agree?  Thought I would share the recipe for any upcoming patriotic events....and of course, you can always leave off the blueberries too.

Here's the recipe:

1  (3.4) oz) pkg coconut cream instant pudding mix (or flavor of choice)
3/4 C. sour cream
1/4 C. heavy whipping cream
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese softened
3/4 C. confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon coconut extract (optional)
1 quart large strawberries washed and dried.

Combine pudding mix, sour cream & whipping cream.  Beat with mixer on med. speed.  Lower the speed to low and add cream cheese, confectioners sugar & extract.  Beat until well combined.  Cover & refrigerate 30 minutes.  With stem side down, make 2 vertical cuts from tip to about 1/4 inch from the stem end.  Spread apart to form petals.  Spoon or pipe filling into each strawberry.

Take this in for an office treat and you'll be everybody's favorite co-worker....at least until they're all gobbled up!


  1. I am so happy you posted this! Our strawberries are just now coming in and this sweet treat looks so divine!!!!

  2. I've made something similar, but not with the pudding!! How yummy is that and perfect with the blueberries on top. Thanks for sharing this great treat. Your co-workers must love you.

  3. You have some lucky co-workers! I am glad they appreciate your efforts, too. These look absolutely delicious!

    Thanks for stopping by with the kind words.

  4. These look so delicious! You are so generous to make weekly treats for your colleagues at work.

  6. Oh these sound fabulous!!! Thanks so much for the recipe!!! XO, Pinky

  7. Oh My Goodness this looks SO DELICIOUS!!! I'm thinking that for valentines day it would be great to leave the blueberries off and drizzle with chocolate? What do you think??? but for summer this is PERFECT!!! Thank you SO SO MUCH!!!
