Quick Angelic Dessert

This recipe takes advantage of some pre-prepared items, and so can be thrown together very quickly.
  • 1 Angel Food cupcake (from 4-count package*)
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar 'n Spice Fruit Dip
  • approximately 15 raspberries
  • 2 tsp powdered sugar OR whipped cream (optional)
1. Cut cupcake in half horizontally:

2. Spread 1 Tbsp of dip on cut side of each half. Arrange raspberries on top of dip. If desired, dust with powdered sugar or top with spoonful of whipped cream.

Robyn's notes: *Angel Food cupcakes are available in the bakery section of my grocery store. Each cupcake is approximately 4 inches in diameter.
This is a nice way to have a sweet dessert without going overboard if you're counting calories. I can't do an exact nutritional analysis, because there were no nutrition facts on the angel food cake packaging, but each half of this should be somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 calories.

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
