This recipe was in Better Homes and Gardens 99 Easy Recipes--another of those grocery store booklets! I thought they were so cute and would be perfect for those hot summer days.

A great, simple way to make plain fruit a bit more appealing. Works great with picky, little kids. I used some strawberry jam that I warmed up and spooned over the top instead of the puree.

A caramel colored waffle bowl filled with colorful fruit topped with strawberry puree would be perfect for a luncheon or any other festive occasion. This is very easy to put together when you need something fast to impress those unexpected guest that drop in for a visit. What a tempting way to serve fresh fruit and the best part of this…no dishes to wash.

This is a great idea. Made my homemade sugar cones a little smaller than the ones you buy. Drizzled some chocolate in the bottoms and let get solid. Then filled to the brim with fresh sliced strawberries, and small chunks of fresh pineapple. Topped each with a dollap of Nutri whip,, and grating of chocolate. Was a nice looking dessert. Thanks for the eay and simple recipe, that everyone enjoys.
