Strawberries are stuffed with a cream cheese filling for a cute two-bite dessert. Can be prepared the night before, but not much earlier than that as the berries may become soggy.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

    Advertisement
  • Beat together the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.

  • Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip.

  • With a sharp paring knife, cut a cone shape out of the top of each strawberry to leave a small hollow.

  • Pipe about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese filling into each strawberry, making sure that the filling overflows a bit out of the top of the strawberry.

  • Place the graham cracker crumbs into a shallow bowl. Dip the filled side of the strawberry into the graham cracker crumbs, coating the exposed filling with crumbs.

  • Melt the chocolate and canola oil in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until warm and smooth, 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave).

  • Dip the unfilled ends of the strawberries into the melted chocolate and place on the prepared baking sheet; refrigerate until set.

Wow! Delicious and a nice spin on chocolate covered strawberries! Not only is this cute and creative but if you love the taste of cheesecake without all the effort (and without all the calories) then this little dessert is for you! It's got cheesecake strawberries and chocolate - what more could you ask for in two bites? I made this for my husband for Valentine's day and they were a big hit especially when accompanied by a glass of champagne! Thanks Alex for a great recipe! Read More

These were just okay. I prefer strawberries dipped in chocolate much more. I thought this was too much effort for little payoff. They didn't taste anything like cheesecake to me. Read More

Tip: An egg carton works great for propping up the strawberries for quick fill. Great recipe... the combination of ingredients speak for themselves as a delish combo! Just made them for a BBQ tomorrow and I'm anticipating great reviews! Read More

I wanted to do it faster so I used a ziplock-style bag and cut the hole too big. Start over. What a mess I made and I'd do this mess all over again. There really are not enough left on the plate to share. Okay one or two for DH...provided he gets home early...! Strawberries cream cheese and chocolate? Pure TNT!! And I was going to put the berries into a salad...Silly me! Read More

These were awesome! To cut calories I used Equal instead of sugar and low fat cream cheese. I crushed cinnamon graham crackers instead if plain ones. Next time I will dip in chocolate...Yummm! Read More

AWESOME! I added some cocoa powder to the cream cheese mixture to make it chocolate just because I was in the mood but followed the recipe otherwise dipping it in the optional chocolate and decorating them w/ white chocolate drizzle and sprinkles. Of course I couldn't wait for dessert tonight to try them so I tried one now and they are really REALLY good! My strawberries were pretty small and not the best but they still turned out great! Can't wait to make these w/ better ones. Thanks Alex for sharing this wonderful spin on choco. dipped strawberries!:) Read More

HUGE hit with my crowd. Super easy to make. I had huge stawberries and I didn't stray from the recipe and it was perfect. Plenty of filling for all the berries. I didn't have a problem with it being loose at all. Wouldn't change it a bit. Thanks!! Read More

Ok. I made this a little easier for myself but this turned out so good I have to share it for other busy ladies like me. I took 15 mini pre-made phyllo cups(rather than cutting into strawberries) and filled them with a small tablespoon sized scoop(I use it for cookie dough)of the cream cheese filling (rather than piping it). I then halved strawberries and placed a half on each cheesecake bite. Lastly I sprinkled mini chocolate chips over them (rather than making a chocolate drizzle). This was pretty yummy and fast. My husband and toddler ate the entire batch! Read More

A party hit! Tweaked to make a little healthier but not to take away from this recipe. Used 1/3 less fat cream cheese. Drizzled with fat free chocolate syrup. Hint: to stand strawberries up on serving dish cut tip off bottom. Also sliced off top then used smallest Mellon ball tool to scoop out strawberry...paring knife was driving me nuts. Great recipe..thanks! Read More
