Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries


I saw some beautiful, large strawberries at the grocery store today and immediately thought of a video I saved a while ago on Facebook: No-bake strawberry cheesecake bites. I couldn’t pass up the chance to use these berries when they smelled so flavorful.  The original recipe can be found here: http://rare.us/rare-life/food-and-drink/these-no-bake-strawberry-cheesecake-bites-are-everything/ however, I did quarter the recipe since my husband wouldn’t have any interest in helping me eat these. My measurements are below:

Ingredients

4-6 strawberries (depending on size)

2 ounces cream cheese

1/3 cup powdered sugar

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Crushed animal crackers to taste

I followed the directions exactly as given in the video. They turned out great! Don’t let the name fool you, though; these are not filled with cheesecake. They are filled with cream cheese icing. Even still, they are not overly sweet and the vanilla compliments the flavor of the strawberries. The only caveat I have is that this recipe wouldn’t work well if the berries aren’t perfectly ripe. If you find perfect strawberries like I did, enjoy these perfect bites of summertime sweetness.
