    This is a recipe originally produced by the classic cookie brand, Nilla Wafer. Those little treats are probably best known for their place in Banana Pudding recipes (or my Strawberry Pudding Trifle), the company has set out to create new recipes that are sure to become classics as well.

    The concept was introduced during Christmas with sky-high, three layered cookie sandwiches, layered with orange juice and raspberry jam. However, I simplified things a touch for Valentine’s Day.

    Two layers seemed a bit more manageable for me to make and for us to eat after they were assembled. I also decided to switch up the flavors. I nixed the orange juice and swapped the raspberry for a Valentine’s Day favorite – strawberry!

    Not a fan of strawberry? Use whatever flavor jam or jelly you are craving at the moment. The jam tucked between the Nilla Wafers will soften the cookies just enough to give them a cake-like consistency and the chocolate holds everything together.

    You’ll have a good amount of leftover white chocolate after dipping, purely because it is impossible to dip using a sparse amount. I used the remaining chocolate to cover strawberries or make super easy Chocolate Caramel Pretzels.

    For decoration, go wild. You can use colored chocolates, get sprinkles, or use little cake decorations. Embellish and personalize your Strawberry Shortcake Cookies however you like for a one of a kind gift.

    These cookies are perfect for parties or gatherings. They are even better to give to your someone special. Pop them in a box and tie it up with a ribbon and you have a gorgeous, homemade treat.

    Ingredients

    • 24 Nilla wafer cookies
    • 1/4 cup strawberry jam
    • 12- ounce bag white candy melts
    • 2 teaspoons shortening
    • Embellishments of your choice
    • strawberries optional

    Instructions

    • Evenly spread strawberry jam on the top side of 12 Nilla wafers. Top with another Nilla wafer. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours, but up to 24 hours.
    • In a double boiler, or in the microwave, melt candy melts and shortening. Stir until smooth.
    • Place one cookie on a fork and dip into white chocolate, covering on all sides and tapping to get excess chocolate off. Remove to a cooling rack with parchment or aluminum foil underneath to catch the drippings. Use excess chocolate to coat strawberries.
    • If adding sprinkles, do so while chocolate is still warm. Otherwise, additional melted chocolate or frosting can be added after candy melts have set. Place into the refrigerator for 10 minutes to cool.
    • Do not store in the refrigerator, but in an airtight container in a cool place.
    • If you tried this recipe, come back and let us know how it was!
