Chocolate Dipped, Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine's Day!!! So yesterday I showed you the pink champagne cupcakes. Well the other popular flavor of v-day is chocolate, specifically, chocolate and strawberries. Here is what we did.



= Chocolate Dipped, Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

I took strawberries and hulled them out. I would have preferred larger strawberries but this is what they had in the store.

I got a frozen cheesecake (totally felt like a "Golden Girls" moment) and made sure it was room temperature. I simple scooped up a little with a spoon and stuffed it in the strawberry. I am really spoiled with cheesecake and have been eating my uncles for years. It is so much better than the frozen one I got but I did not want to go through the trouble of making a homemade cheesecake if this experiment did not work.

Here is my batch. I then stuck them in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

I melted a bowl of chocolate chips, then dipped the frozen strawberries.

Once they hardened, I flipped them over and dipped the tops.

Not the prettiest but with this combination, who cares?!

Rather than fight the crowds and find a sitter, we decided to make Valentine's dinner at home. These are for our dessert. I am pretty excited about them but next time I will be making a homemade cheesecake.
