Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries



Not being a fan of chocolate covered strawberries, I was happy to find these CHEESECAKE stuffed strawberries on The Novice Chef. You only need a few ingredients to put these together and they turn out to be quite impressive. Try them - you won't be disappointed!

Ingredients:
2 quarts of fresh Strawberries
1 box Jello No Bake Cheesecake (I used this box mix and it came with the graham cracker crumbs. This was good, but next time I think I'd try making my own filling - just to compare.)
Crushed Graham Crackers
Milk Chocolate for drizzling (I also used white chocolate because I had some)

Directions:
Wash the berries and hollow out the centers. I used a small paring knife for this. Mix the cheesecake according to the directions. Put the cheesecake in a piping bag and fill each strawberry until slightly overfilled. Then, place the graham cracker crumbs into a bowl and dip each strawberry into the crumbs to coat the top. Melt the chocolate in the microwave (I used just 1 block of the bark type chocolate from Kroger) in 30 second increments stirring between. Again, transfer to a piping bag with a narrow tip and drizzle onto each berry. Refrigerate until you're ready to eat!

I don't do desserts but I'll just classify these as a fruit & veggie portion :)

Freaking phenomenal dish, DM!

Glad you enjoyed them! I am planning on making my own cheesecake next time myself! But for a quick-fix the box always works!

did't work too well for me. :( the cheesecake wasn't thick enough to stay inside the strawberries.

Jackie said...

I stumbled upon your blog just before Mother's Day and have since made these three times! They are always half-gone before I finish :)

In my opinion, these are perfect just the way they are with the no-bake cheesecake, so easy it should be a crime, and super affordable when strawberries are on sale! I recommend 2 #s of strawberries for each box of no-bake mix.

Colleen said...

I made this but I used a a filling recipe that was 1 pkg of cream cheese 1/2 of powdered sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla. They are wonderful!

Crappy Midwest Housewife said...

I have now made these 5 times!!! I believe that makes me an addict :) They are a hit everywhere I bring them and I always pass credit back to you and your genius! I will be linking them to my blog as soon as I can!
