This was just tooooo good NOT to share! I had an idea of a desert...actually two of them...so I scoured Pinterest for some ideas. I combined chocolate covered strawberries & cream-cheese filled strawberries into one!
Super easy...super yummy!!
Step 2: Cut the tops & bottoms off the strawberries
Step 3: Scoop out the middle of the strawberries with either a small melon scooper, or just use a metal baby spool like I did!
Step 4: Dip your strawberries in melted semi-sweet chocolate chips. I added a baby spoon size amount of Crisco to keep the melted chocolate smooth!
Step 5: Make your cream cheese filling! Use your hand mixer to blend 8oz of softened cream cheese, 1/4c powdered & 1/2tsp of vanilla extract.
Step 6: Put your filling into a frosting piping bag...or just do it the "Jenna" way...put it in a ziplock baggie & snip the corner. Pipe the filling into the hollowed out strawberry middle, in a swirl pattern!
Step 7: Squirt any remaining filling into your mouth or that of a kiddie volunteer!
Step 8: Chill those strawberries in the fridge for at least an hour (or until the chocolate has hardened)!
Step 9: Enjoy!!!
