Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

This is what I’m making today for out Family BBQ tonight.    They were so quick and easy.   About 45 minutes from start to finish.

Clean 3 pints of fresh strawberries.   Hollowed out the middle using a small paring knife.  (pampered chef)

To make the filling I pulled out my Kitchen Aid Mixer.   Cream together  2 - 8oz packages of cream cheese with 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1 tsp  real vanilla.   (Never use imitation!  for anything!)

Spoon mixture into a quart ziplock freezer bag.

Cut the corner and pipe mixture into each strawberry.

Crush 1/2 a sleeve of graham crackers.  My trick is to put them into a ziplock bag. Get out the rolling pin and smash them into crumbs, then dump in a bowl. 


Dip the top of each strawberry into the graham cracker crumbs to cover the cream cheese mixture.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper to place the strawberries.   When done stuffing and crumbing them,  you can drizzle with semi sweet chocolate if desired.

Grab a large handful of miniature semi sweet chips,  throw them into a ziplock bag and microwave until melted.   I then cut a corner off and drizzle a little over the strawberries.

If they were just for me I wouldn’t add the chocolate but I know there will be chocolate lovers at the BBQ….   and I am a people pleaser :)
