Strawberry ShortCUT Sushi

Thank you for all your kind words and loving support on the last post. I hope it can help us all be a little less judgmental :)

ANYWHOO.... With all that heavy stuff out of the way lets move on to something that could actually make you "heavy" ha ha. But seriously... Look at those.
I came across THIS awesome recipe and while it looked delicious I am all about quick and easy. I can tell you that everything, of course, is better homemade. But, sometimes we don't have hours to spend in the kitchen. Therefore, my dear friends, I give you the Strawberry ShortCUT Sushi. Clever? Ah thank you ;)

Strawberry ShortCUT Sushi
makes 40 rolls

 1 Box 10 count Twinkies
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Slice your strawberries into strips like you would see in normal sushi

Take your twinkles our of their individual wrappers and cut the rounded ends off. Not too much though. Then slice them into fourths. You should be able to get 4 rolls out of each twinkie. 
Lay them on their sides and stuff however many strawberry slices you like into the creamy center.
DONE. Now for the sauce.

Strawberry CoulisRecipe from Smitten Kitchen

2 cups quartered and hulled strawberries, mashed
1/4 cup water
3 T granulated sugar
1 T lemon juice

Combine your strawberries, water, sugar and lemon juice in a blender and blend until all the way smooth.

Press through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds. I kind of had to knock it on the bowl a few times to keep it straining through. This takes a few minutes so don't get frustrated. I might of just a little bit....
Cover and place in the fridge until chilled.

 Then just place them on a fancy plate and drizzle ( or pour if you are me) strawberry sauce over the tops and garnish with chocolate syrup! 

And there ya go! A SUPER fancy looking dessert that was so simple to make. And cost efficient might I add!

Hopefully this will help you get through the rest of your week. ENJOY!
