Author Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips


  • 1-1 1/2 lb strawberries
  • 4 oz. light cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 T powdered sugar
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 c dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips chopped chocolate, or candy melts
  • Optional crushed graham crackers chopped nuts, and/or sprinkles


  • Remove the hull from the strawberries, and, using a paring knife, cut a slightly larger cavirty into the strawberry.
  • In a small bowl, combine the light cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla, and stir until smooth.
  • Using a piping bag, plastic storage bag with the tip cut off, or Pampered Chef Easy-Accent Decorator, pipe the cheesecake filling into the strawberries.
  • Place the strawberries in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to chill and firm the filling.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave, or over a pot of simmering water.
  • 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.
