Easy Dessert Idea: Strawberry Shortcake Skewers

Strawberry Shortcake Skewers with Chocolate Drizzle


The other day, I shared how to make Cajun Shrimp Skewers. This recipe is so easy and light, I decided to carry the theme for a fun dessert. These Strawberry Shortcake Skewers are a fun play on the traditional strawberry shortcake dessert. Plus, it’s quicker and involves less sugar!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • small flat of strawberries
  • 1 small loaf of angel food cake
  • Dolci Frutta melting chocolate (usually found right by the strawberries in your grocery store) or you can melt about a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • One package of skewers (you can find these at most grocery stores – Fred Meyer carries them)

Wash your strawberries and cut off the stems.  Cut your loaf into slices and then again into smaller bite sized “squares”.  Alternate strawberries and cake on your skewer sticks.  Follow the directions on the Dolci Frutta container to melt your chocolate (or place your semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl and microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds, until melted).  Drizzle your chocolate with a spoon and let harden and there you have it… a super easy and yummy dessert that everyone will love.


What do with all those skewers?

Places I found on Yelp: Emily’s Factory Outlet Store (Fife)

Emily's Factory Store - Fife, Washington

This month, I kicked off my May blog series called, Yelp! Save me Money! It’s all about how to use Yelp to find places in your area that will help save you money.

Every Monday and Friday this month, I’ll be sharing different money-saving places in my hometown (Tacoma) that I located thanks to Yelp searches. The goal is to illustrate how to find new bargain spots as well as highlighting specific businesses for my locals. You can find previous posts in this series at my Yelp! page.

Today’s feature business is Emily’s Factory Outlet Store in Fife, Washington. I stumbled upon this little gem via this Yelp search:



Now Emily’s Factory Store was the #1 search result for this search and the funny thing is, I’d never heard of this place before! And, we drive by Fife all the time! Just goes to show you that you may well have places like this in your neighborhood and not even know it. Here are some of the reviews that caught my attention:

Excuse me, have you heard of the deliciousness of Emily’s Chocolates? You haven’t? You MUST.

I was talking and joking with the staff and then later realized that one of the women I was chatting with was the owner!  She is so down to earth, you would never know she was the owner of a delicious company!

Bought a Living Social deal for here.  They sell Emily’s at my work but it’s  pretty pricey. So when I found myself in Fife on a weekday decided it was time to do a little chocolate shopping.

That last tip is a pretty good one, in my book. Emily’s may team with sites like Living Social to offer discounts, so it may be worth keeping an eye on them.

The sign from the street is small and easy to miss. In fact, we’ve driven right past it many times before and I’d never even noticed it!DSCN0014 (800x467)

This is the building that the store is housed in. I walked through that main door in the picture, but that’s not where you’ll want to go. DOH!

DSCN0015 (800x673)

Here’s the door you’re actually looking for! See why this place may be easy to miss? DSCN0016 (800x525)

The store inside is small, but filled with delicious treats. While the prices aren’t super cheap, apparently they are cheaper than you’d find at the stores. Even so, there were a few noteworthy good deals. DSCN0017 (800x465)

For instance, these 12 oz containers of buy one, get one free cashews are a deal in my book. That would work out to just $1.99 per container – a great price for cashews!
