Ingredients

  • 1-1 1/2 lb strawberries, washed and dried
  • 4 oz. regular or light cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar or powdered sugar free sweetener, like Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, chopped chocolate, or candy melts
  • Optional sprinkles, chopped nuts, crushed graham crackers, etc.

Instructions

  • Remove the hull from the strawberries, and, using a paring knife, cut a slightly larger cavity into the strawberry. You can also use a strawberry huller, but you might still want to cut a larger opening.
  • In a small bowl, combine the light cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla, and stir until smooth.
  • Using a piping bag or plastic storage bag with the tip cut off, pipe the cheesecake filling into the strawberries.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave, or over a pot of simmering water. Follow package directions, if given. Otherwise, microwave in 15-30 second increments, stirring after each interval until melted.
  • Dip the cheesecake end into the chocolate, then into the graham crackers, nuts, or sprinkles, if desired.
  • Stand up on the chocolate-dipped end.
  • Store in the refrigerator until serving.
