Strawberry shortcake crumbles or Strawberry Crunch topping is so easy and fun to make! It's the ideal topping for vanilla ice cream, trifles, cupcakes, cakes, cookies - you name it!
All you need are 4 ingredients - golden oreos, freeze-dried strawberries, melted butter, and strawberry jello powder! In under 5 minutes you'll have the most delicious strawberry crumbles ever!
Strawberry shortcake ice cream bars will always have a special place in my heart! The strawberry crumbs on top of the strawberry ice cream always made the most delicious treat!
Every time the ice cream truck would come around, I would get these bars and the outside of the ice cream bar was my favorite.
So, I made a homemade version that tastes JUST like it. This strawberry shortcake crumble recipe is everything. It's only 4 ingredients and literally goes so well on top of so many dessert recipes.
In fact, I used this crunch on top of my Strawberry Crunch Cake! Best part? No baking involved, just put everything in a blender and go!
Freeze dried strawberries: no need to worry about strawberry season and getting fresh strawberries, the freeze-dried fruit gives so much of that nostalgic strawberry crunch.
Strawberry gelatin mix: this is the ingredient that really takes it up a notch and really gives that sweet strawberry flavor! I used Jell-o brand from my local grocery store.
Golden oreo cookies: these are pretty easy to find but I've also used vienna sandwich cookies when I've been unable to find them.
Butter: you can use unsalted butter or salted butter - totally up to your personal preference.
If you don't have a food processor, you can use a rolling pin to crush the ingredients in a ziploc bag and then toss in the melted butter to form the strawberry crumbles.
That's it! I told you that this quick homemade strawberry crumble recipe comes together in under 5 minutes!
Pro tip: add the strawberry shortcake crumbles on top of some whipped cream or cool whip for the perfect dessert! Thank me later!
Vanilla cookie sandwiches, melted butter, freeze dried strawberries, and strawberry jell-o mix.
Add to the top of the cake for a nice crunch, it goes exceptionally well with cream cheese frosting! You can also add the crumbs to cupcakes, cookies, whipped cream, or eat it alone (it's so good).
After you've made the crumbles, add them to an airtight container or ziploc bag. Store in the refrigerator for about 3 months. I don't recommend freezing because when it thaws, it may become soggy.
