Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries are about to become your next obsession if you love cheesecake and strawberries! These bite-size desserts are perfect for parties and will make your mouth water. Plus video tutorial!
We like to make them in the summertime when strawberries are in season, and you can make them in 15 minutes without having to turn on the oven.
A minor miracle happens when fresh strawberries are combined with cheesecake, or better yet stuffed with cheesecake! Add in some chocolate and oreo crumbs, and you have the best dessert ever!
If you’re entertaining or having a party, these cheesecake stuffed strawberries are a perfect buffet item. Put them out on a platter and watch them disappear in minutes…
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!
