These little gems were served at Marcus' 1st birthday party. I was concerned these strawberries weren't going to turn out well. It appears I had nothing to worry about. After everyone had gone through the food line I went to try out the Easy Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. They must have been good seeing as there wasn't a single one left by the time I went through the line!
Let's get to crackin'.
Easy No-Bake Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
16 oz package of fresh strawberries
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz packet of whipped cream (I had no idea whipped cream came in powder form! Found mine by the puddings/jellos section)
1 packet cheesecake pudding
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Slice an "X" into the top of the strawberry. Set aside to dry; you want them as dry as possible. After about 2-3 minutes chill the strawberries in the fridge.
Take dry whipped cream and packet of cheesecake pudding, fold them together until well blended.
Slowly add the softened cream cheese to the mix.
Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla to the filling.
After filling is fully mixed remove from bowl and place in gallon freezer bag (or use piping tools if you have them). Allow to chill for 30-35 minutes.
Remove filling and strawberries from fridge.
If you're using a zip lock bag snip one end corner, this becomes your piping tool.
Squeeze filling into the "Xs" of your strawberries.
Serve and enjoy!!
These will not disappoint.
