I recently found an app on iPhone called Foodgawker. This is totally love at first sight! I check it out whenever I have a chance. They have tons of food blogs with recipes. There are so many to try!
Got some leftover cream cheese in the fridge and bought some fresh strawberries at Costco yesterday, so I thought...hmm...this is one good recipe I can try out!
Cheesecake Stuffed Fresh Strawberries
Makes 25 stuffed strawberries
(original recipes from thesweetslife.com)
25 Medium fresh strawberries
4 oz. fat-free cream cheese
2 tbsp Confectioner's sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Reduced fat graham cracker crumbs
1 tbsp mini chocolate chips (optional)
1) Wash and dry strawberries, remove the top part with the leaves and hollow the inside with a small knife. Cut the bottom of the strawberries so they can "stand" on a serving plate.
2) In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, Confectioner's sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a Ziploc with the corner snipped off. Fill strawberries with cheesecake mixture.
3) Once the strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until serving.
4) Optional: before dipping them in graham cracker crumbs, you may push a few pieces of mini chocolate chips with a toothpick right into the cheesecake mixture for a little sweet surprise!
