Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries are delicious, bite-size treats with a chocolatey filling and oreo crumb crust! They’re perfect for parties and celebrations!
Here’s a fabulous recipe for days when fresh strawberries are in season and you don’t want to turn on the oven! You can prepare them in about 20 minutes for an easy treat.
We’ve used chocolate to flavor the cheesecake, but you can make plain vanilla cheesecake or add another flavoring. These desserts disappear quickly, so think about doubling the recipe when you’re entertaining.
How to Make Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
To make them, wash and pat dry your strawberries. The best strawberries are medium size – not too big to be bite size, but not too small to stuff. Use a paring knife to remove the stems and create a cavity to fill with cheesecake.
Then dip the bottoms in melted chocolate followed by oreo crumbs. That will help them stand up on their own for a fantastic presentation on a platter.
Next, prepare the chocolate cheesecake filling by combining cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, butter and cocoa in a bowl.
Add in some melted chocolate and whipped cream, and voilà – you have the perfect chocolate cheesecake filling ready to go…
That’s really it. All you need to do is pipe the filling into the strawberries. If you don’t have a pastry bag, just fill up a zip top bag and clip off 1/8-inch off a corner with some scissors. Then squeeze the filling out the hole!
