Semi-Homemade Brownie Bites

This week was a killer week and I expect that the next few weeks will be much the same.  So with that in mind I'm trying to simplify my craziness and come up with a few semi-homemade creations.  I was asked to bring something sweet to our final PTA meeting of the year...I had a couple of hours that I could spend in the kitchen or at my son's baseball game.  I decided on the latter and while sitting at his game it hit me...not the ball, but a great idea for something sweet!  Something I could do quickly and would even taste yummy.  
Brownie Bites with my secret-cream topping recipe and strawberries.


I dropped by Sams Club (I think Costco carries them as well) and picked up their little tub of brownie bites.  I also picked up a tub of these scrumptious cake bites...wasn't sure how they would taste but seemed to be a crowd pleaser. 


This is what the cake bite tub looked like at Sams


I bought the brownie bites home, stuck them in a brown candy cup and then whipped up my secret cream cheese topping.  Piped a little dollop of the topping on the brownie bite, fanned half of a strawberry on top and sweet was complete! 


I'm thinking it might be nice to help simplify your life along with mine ya go!  
My secret recipe...

Brownie Bite Cream Topping
1-3oz. pkg.cream cheeses (softened)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream

Beat cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar and the vanilla in small bowl with electric mixer on low speed until smooth.  Beat in whipping cream on medium speed until stiff peaks form.  Place (or use a pastry bag for piping) a dollop of cream on brownie bite, top with a strawberry, raspberry or other favorite fruit.  Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.  Cover and refrigerate any remaining bites.


And now...what's next!
