Cheesecake Chocolate Covered Strawberries
The ultimate recipe for Chocolate Covered Strawberries with a cheesecake filling. SO GOOD and perfect for Valentine's Day.
- 16 oz fresh large strawberries
- 3/4 cup chopped milk chocolate
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 3 Tbsp powdered sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup cheesecake filling mix
- 4 oz cool whip
- graham crackers from box
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.
