Cheesecake Stuffed Chocolate Covered Strawberries ~ Indulge your Valentine with this updated classic.
Chocolate covered strawberries are definitely on my top ten Valentine’s dessert list. They are easy to make, always elegant and always delicious. This time around I wanted to add a simple twist to this classic.
And I had some, okay, a lot of cheesecake left over from a gathering, so I decided to try this with it. What a hit! My friends loved them and it’s now our favorite way to enjoy chocolate covered strawberries.
The cheesecake was a little thick for piping so I added some cream cheese to it and gave it a few whippings in the KitchenAid and it came out perfect for piping consistency.
A few notes:
- There’s no recipe. This is just a simple modern update to a classic dessert. And hey, a damn good and fun way to use up any left over cheesecake!
- Strawberries can be cored and dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate the night before and stuffed the day of.
