For any special occasion, Stuffed Strawberries are an easy and delicious alternative to chocolate covered strawberries. See this fun recipe below!

Stuffed Strawberries

Who doesn't love cheesecake with strawberries! I think for most of us, strawberry desserts are special occasion treats.

I usually reserve cheesecakes and strawberries for special occasions, but honestly this recipe is no more difficult that making cookies! You could make it any time of year if you have extra strawberries in the fridge that need to be eaten– soon.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Vs. Stuffed Strawberries

If you've made chocolate covered strawberries on your own before, you probably know there's not a lot to it. Just rinse the strawberries and add your melted candy coating on the outside of the berries, sometimes leaving the green leafy stem in place.

On the other hand, stuffed strawberries need to be cored first, meaning you will get rid of that inner tough center and also the entire green stem and leafy part. This dessert probably probably involves slightly more skill with a paring knife, so if you haven't worked with strawberries before just be aware it may take some practice. Look for larger strawberries, and have some extras on hand in case some of them don't look great after you've cored them.

A special strawberry coring tool makes this recipe MUCH easier, so I would recommend getting one of those if you can. You can find a simple strawberry huller or a combo huller and slicer.

Make your Filling

After you've cleaned, cored, and prepared the strawberries, you can set them aside in the fridge to make your filling. This filling is basically cheesecake, so you will also need a piping bag or large ziplock to fill them without making too much of a mess.

In a microwave safe bowl, blend your softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla. You can use a hand mixer with whisk attachment. It won't look like much but the filling goes a long way since each strawberry only needs a very small amount. The cream cheese should be soft enough to go through the end of a piping bag. If not, microwave for about 10 seconds and stir until it's a thinner consistency.

Blend until there are no lumps, and gently add to a piping bag. I prefer to just leave my strawberries in a bowl, and then get one out at a time and fill each, one by one. You can line them up on any serving tray as you go.

That's it! Refrigerate your stuffed strawberries until ready to serve! If you want to make them extra fun and a little sweeter, dip the non-filled ends into white almond bark and set back down on the serving tray. Allow to fully set before serving. This gives them another layer of “dessert” and also helps them stand up better. Top with graham cracker crumbs for garnish, if desired! Enjoy!
