An Easy Sweet Summer Treat

0

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m no baker. Baking takes patience, and I like to reserve the majority of that virtue for my headstrong toddler. But occasionally, preparing a sweet treat is a must – either for my sanity, or for a get-together with friends. These strawberry cheesecake bites are no bake, easy, delicious, and can be altered to be a little “extra” for any occasion (below, I added blueberries to make them more patriotic for the recent holiday). The best part is, they take little time – and patience!
