Cheesecake Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Melt chocolate (I melt it over a double boiler). Set aside to cool.
- Cut off the tops of strawberries and hollow them out with a small knife, teaspoon or strawberry huller.
- Cut off a small portion off of the bottom of each strawberry. When cutting be sure to cut straight so the strawberries will stand. Pat strawberries completely DRY.
- Once the chocolate has cooled, dip the top of the strawberry into the chocolate. Once dipped, place strawberry onto the parchment paper. Allow the chocolate to set before filling.
- With a mixer on medium speed; combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cheesecake mix until fluffy, about 1-2 minutes (the cheesecake filling should just about dissolve and not be lumpy).
- Add the cool whip and mix again.
- Add cream to a decorating bag and pipe cream into each strawberry. Take some of the crushed graham crackers from the box and sprinkle over the cream. Enjoy! Keep refrigerated if not enjoyed immediately.
