I was reimbursed by Driscoll’s for the ingredients in this post along with coupons for next time. All opinions are 100% my own.
Valentine’s day is only a couple days away, and at my house we always indulge in chocolate covered strawberries, it’s kind of a little tradition for us. This year, I wanted to switch it up just a little bit. Usually in the past, I just dip them in chocolate and let them dry but this year, I came up with an even more delicious way to eat these little treasures and let me tell you, they are delicious! Even my hubby tried one and said, “Hun, these are amazing!” So I mean, they must be at least a little good, right? 🙂
So I wanted to share my recipe with you in case you wanted to create a little treat for your family this Valentine’s Day. I hope you’re hungry!
Cream Cheese Filled Chocolate-Covered Strawberries Recipe
- 1 package Driscoll’s® Strawberries (washed and dried)
- 3 blocks of baking/melting chocolate
- 1/2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp milk
- 1 oz cream cheese
- Mini chocolate chips (optional for garnish)
1. Start by coring your strawberries using a spoon or a coring tool if you have one. The deeper you go, the more room you will have for the cream cheese filling.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine your sugar, milk and cream cheese. Blend with a hand mixer until thoroughly combined. Place into a piping bag to fill your strawberries.
3. Place your melting chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for one minute. Stir, and if necessary, heat for increments of 30 seconds until chocolate is able to stir smooth.
4. Roll your strawberries in the chocolate mixture and coat with a thin layer of chocolate. Gently place on wax paper to cool, approximately 10 minutes.
5. After your chocolate has hardened, carefully pipe the cream cheese mixture into your strawberries until full.
6. Top with your mini chocolate chips for the final touches, then refrigerate until it’s time to serve. Voila! You’ve got a delicious spin off of chocolate covered strawberries!
My first batch of these lasted roughly a day until they were all eaten up! Now I am planning on making another batch for Valentine’s Day that we can enjoy. It only seems right to make some more, I mean, I only got two the first time around! 🙂
