Tasty Tuesday

So ok I won this super cute giveaway from Janel
this picture is missing all the great candy we were eating it :D
She even included Dixie a sweet little hat (she made it how great is that!)
Now on to Tasty Tuesday... Debbie shared this great recipe it would be perfect for
Valentine Day!

1 sheet puffy pastry, thawed at room temperature
8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
¼ cup Confectioner’s Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 lb Fresh Strawberries, sliced
¼ - ½ cup Granulated Sugar
2 cups Whipped Topping
¼ cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Makes 3 servings.
1. Cut your sheet of puff pastry into six, equal portions and bake per the instructions on the package. Once these are baked, remove and cool.
2. Next, clean and slice the fresh strawberries. Place in a bowl and add the granulated sugar. Place in the refrigerator while you prepare the cream.
3. In a large mixing bowl, add your softened cream cheese, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Next add the 2 cups of whipped topping and mix at medium speed to incorporate it into your cream cheese mixture. I then put this into a container and placed into the refrigerator to keep cool until needed to put the napoleon’s together.
4. Now, place one of the pieces of puff pastry onto your plate. Add a few tablespoons of the cream mixture on top and spread it a little till it looks like its running down the sides a bit. Next you will add your strawberries. I took them, piece by piece and arranged them into a nice layer on top of the cream mixture. Add a small dollop of the cream mixture on top of the berries to help the next piece of puff pastry to stay in place. Now repeat.
5. After you put on the berries for the second time, I added a little bit of the whipped topping and spread it evenly on the top. Now you will melt your chocolate chips and drizzle the chocolate over the whipped topping.
6. I then sprinkled with a pinch of confectioner’s sugar to dress it up a little.
Note: I usually buy the larger container of whipped topping which allows me to add the extra to the top of the dessert. If you only by the smaller one, you can use more of the cream cheese mixture.

I am off to the post office I hope everyone is having a great day! The weather here in Georgia is gorgeous I think I will take the dogs for a walk!
