Recipe: White Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

by Melissa on July 11, 2012

Warning: this recipe isn’t sugar free, fat free, free of anything…oh, and the recipe can’t get much simpler unless you’re just eating a strawberry.

I made these babies for the 4th of July, and I didn’t see a single set of eyes not light up the moment someone tried them for the first time. Or the tenth time, really.

White Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Ingredients:

1 pound of strawberries

Sprinkles of your choice (like shown above or graham crackers, chocolate chips, cinnamon, coconut, you name it)

1 8-oz. container of Kraft White Chocolate Indulge cream cheese (this stuff tastes like cheesecake)

Directions:

Wash and remove the pith of the strawberries. Pour the sprinkles of your choice into a small bowl. Scoop the container of cream cheese into a frosting bag and add the nozzle. In each strawberry, squeeze enough cheese into the empty pith so that it overflows slightly. Turn the strawberry upside down, dip the cheese end into the sprinkles, and voila! Simple. (And the girls had a blast dipping the strawberries…it’s totally kid-worthy.)

Carla, the girls LOVED making these with me. My mother-in-law removed the pith, they’d each grab one, hold ‘em out, and I’d fill each one. They’d dip and compare. Haha. Took me all of 5 minutes to make these with their help. (Warning: my youngest enjoyed stealing sprinkles off of them in between fills. lol)

White chocolate cream cheese?? Oh man, pretty sure that’s not available in my neck of the woods, which is probably a good thing :)

OMG. I wonder what kind of non-dairy filling I can sub in so these don’t wreck my tummy…

Perhaps some sort of chocolate frosting? LOL

You know what? I’m going to make a special dairy-free filling just for you. (And me. I didn’t eat these this time…I did the time before that. lol)

They’re adorable! I will definitely be making some with the cute, festive sprinkles next year for the 4th. I like the graham cracker topping idea, too. I wonder if it would work to use regular cream cheese and flavor it by mixing in jello mix or something…I’m thinking lime or lemon flavored cream cheese would taste great with the strawberries, especially with the graham cracker topping! :)
