Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!

Last night I tried out a new recipe at a jewelry party. It seemed to be a big hit, and some people asked for the recipe So i said i'd post it.

24 large strawberries, hulls removed
12 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
4-5 tablespoons powdered sugar
Ideas for toppings-mini chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbs, toasted coconut, melted chocolate, chopped almonds

1.Place cream cheese in a bowl, and microwave for 30 seconds, so that it's soft.
2.Whip together the cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar.
3.Scoop out the center of the strawberries. I used a melon scoop. It was really fast and easy 4.Spoon or pipe the filling into each hole.
5.Dip cheesecake end of strawberry into the topping of your choice, making sure you completely cover the cheesecake filling.
6.Lay strawberries in a pretty serving dish.
7.Chill, and serve.
8.Makes 24 servings.

You can also...

-Add cocoa to the filling to make it chocolate filling :)

-drizzle chocolate over strawberries before serving

Super yummy. Try them sometime :)
