Cheesecake and strawberries go perfectly together – like in these Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries.
They look elegant, but are actually fairly easy to make. Strawberry Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, and this is a lower calorie way to get the same taste!
To make the strawberries I used a strawberry huller to take the tops off the berries, leaving a decent size hole behind. You could use a knife too, but my Mom bought me a strawberry huller a few years ago, and I finally had something to use if for! Then I cut a small slice off the other end of the berries so that they stand up straight. Â I was surprised how secure this made the strawberries, and I was able to take them in and out of the refrigerator without them falling over.
Then I made a simple chocolate cheesecake filling, and used a pastry bag and a large decorating tip to fill the berries. Â I sprinkled a little shredded chocolate on top and the dessert was ready to eat. They were delicious! Â I don’t think these would keep well for more than a day or so, but my family finished them quickly so I didn’t get to find out! These would make an excellent party dessert too, since they look fancy and can be made ahead of time.
