Sweets for Summer: Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries...Yum!


Looking for a delicious summer recipe to bring to your next BBQ?  I just love this oh-so-simple twist on the classic chocolate-covered strawberries, brought to me by my lovely & talented little sister...the real bakeress in the family .

Here's how it's done:

~ 2 quarts of fresh Strawberries
~ 1 box Jello No Bake Cheesecake (I like the box that comes with the graham cracker crumbs)
~ Crushed Graham Crackers
~ Milk Chocolate for drizzling

Wash the berries and hollow out the centers - use a small paring knife for this.

Mix the cheesecake according to the directions.  Put the cheesecake in a piping bag and fill each strawberry until slightly overfilled.  Then, place the graham cracker crumbs into a bowl and dip each strawberry into the crumbs to coat the top.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave (1 block of the bark type chocolate from the grocery store) in 30 second increments stirring in between. Again, transfer to a piping bag with a narrow tip and drizzle onto each berry. Refrigerate until you're ready to eat!
