Good recipe. The cream cheese gave it an interesting flavor. Nice and sweet but make sure that you'll eat all the strawberries once you've made them. I put a few in the fridge after and it became mushy and the red sprinkles began to run onto the plate. Read More

They tasted pretty good but didn't look very pretty. First of all I had to spread the cream cheese mixture with a knife because it wouldn't stick to the strawberry if I just dipped it. Second the sugar started melting and running right from the start. It looks a lot better and runs much less if you use colored sugar bought from the store as they are bigger crystals. Also make sure the strawberries are completely dry. Read More

LOVE this recipe! I didn't even make it right. Somehow missed the part about refrigerating the cream cheese mixture before dipping in the colored sugar. Instead I mixed everything together (including the food coloring and granulated sugar and the cream cheese). But my guests said it was better than strawberries dipped in chocolate! A 100% winner - you can't mess it up:) Read More

Read the recipe incorrectly and ended up adding all the ingredients at once! We ended up just dipping the strawberries in the cream cheese. Delicious!:) Read More

As I was just making these as a quick snack for myself I didn't bother with the food coloring part. I loved the contrast of the cream cheese mixture with the strawberries. I'll be making these again. Thanks Serrah! Read More
