Strawberries and Whipped Cream with a Crunch

1-strawberries-and-whipped-cream-with-a-crunch

Sometimes you just have to improvise.

Let’s say you have some whipped cream or whipped topping in the fridge.  And you have a basket of fresh delish strawberries.

And let’s say strawberry shortcake sounded so good but there was no shortcake in sight and you didn’t feel like going to the store.

Here’s what you do next.

You open the pantry and your eyeballs go right to the box of corn flakes that look so yummy and crunchy.

Next it all makes sense and you make this super tasty dessert that’s a cross between a parfait and a distant cousin of a strawberry shortcake.

This exact same thing happened to me and this super yummy dessert quenched my craving in a nano second.

I don’t think I can call this a recipe because it’s more like an idea.

No matter what you call it, its soooo good.

So let’s check out the ingredients….there are only three.
