Yummy! Recipe Day!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Today I'm sharing a very yummy desert that I found on, yes.... Pinterest!

{Photo and recipe courtesy of The Girl Who Ate Everything}
Ingredients:1 lb large strawberries
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 - 1/2 cup powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 - 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs

1. Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out with a paring knife, if necessary (some of them are hollow already. Prep all of the strawberries and set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a piping bag or Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
3. Once strawberries are filled, sprinkle or dip the tops with graham cracker crumbs. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.

Now, I first tried these at Movie night a few weeks back, and Margarita had already tried them and adapted a different recipe, which is the one that I used, below:

2 lb large strawberries (we got ours from Costco)
1 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 jar Marshmallow Fluff

1.  Rinse and pat dry your strawberries.
2.  Cut around the top hull of your berries.  The hull will come off and the inside will be hollow.  Depending on the size of the stawberry, some may be more hollow than others - I always left the berry the way it was made, seemed like I had the perfect amount of cheesecake mixture and berry this way!
3.  In mixing bowl, combine block of cream cheese and entire jar of marshmallow fluff.  Mix until creamy.  I did this by hand, but you can use a mixer if you prefer. 
4.  Add cream cheese mixture into a Ziplock bag and snipe off 1 corner - this will be your piping bag!  If you have a piping bag, guess you can use that too!
5.  Pipe the mixture into your hollowed out strawberries.
6.  Eat immediately, the berries can get a little soggy if left too long!

I made mind for the 4th of july, so I ended up dipping them in blue tinted white chocolate, so my berries were red (berries), white (cream cheese filling) and blue (tinted white chocolate).


This are super easy and yummy!  Just the right amount of sweet and richness!  And so easy... did I already say that?

Have a great and berry sweet day!
