Take your strawberry shortcake out of the bowl and onto a stick with this fun finger food. Marshmallow is a sweet replacement for whipped cream.


  • 1 store-bought pound cake

  • 16 large marshmallows

  • 16 strawberries

  • 16 wooden skewers

  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips


  • Cut pound cake into 1-in. cubes and hull strawberries.

  • Alternately thread 16 large marshmallows, cake cubes and strawberries on skewers.

  • Oil grill (or grill pan). Barbecue over medium, rotating occasionally, until grill marks form, 5 to 6 min.

  • Melt milk chocolate chips and drizzle over skewers.


Soak skewers in warm water for 20 min before grilling to prevent skewers from burning.
