Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

I made this fresh summer snack for a get-together with some lovely ladies.

These are so simple to make, and taste like a mini bite of strawberry cheesecake.

I decided to add some heavy cream because I wanted that strawberries-and-cream kind of undertone along with the cheesecake flavor. I also made mine a little sweeter which I highly recommend. :)

You don't have to pipe the cream with a star tip, even though its an easy way to make it look so pretty. You could just put in a plastic bag and cut off the end. 

You know what would make these over the top? Dip them in chocolate. Omg. Maybe next time.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Recipe adapted from The Sweets Life and Nutmeg Nanny

1 lb large strawberries
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1 graham cracker

Process the graham cracker in a blender to make fine crumbs.

Rinse strawberries and cut off the tops. Core out the inside with a paring knife. Try to find large strawberries because most of them have a nice hollow center. If you want to stand your strawberries upright slice a bit off the bottom to make a flat surface (I didn't do this).

Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with a mixer and beat until creamy. Beat in heavy cream. Add cream cheese mix to piping bag and fill strawberries. Once strawberries are filled dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. Devour and fall in love.

You could also drizzle or dip strawberries in chocolate if desired.

Store leftovers in refrigerator.
