Chocolate Cheesecake dipped strawberries

Chocolate Dipped Cheesecake Filled Strawberries

Serves 10

Ingredients
1 pint strawberries
1/2 bag chocolate chips
8 oz cream cheese
1 Tbs powdered sugar
1 Tbs milk
Sliced almonds (optional)

Wash the strawberries then slice the bottom point off the strwberry, so that it can stand up straight.  Next pluck the stem off.  Using a paring knife or strawberry huller, scoop out the top to make room for the cheesecake.

This is the most important step...dry off the strawberries individully with paper towels.  If the strawberries are wet, the chocolate will not stick.

Melt the chocolte in a double broiler or microwve.

Line a cookie sheet (one that will fit in your freezer) with waxed paper or a silpat liner.    Dip the bottom halaf of each strawberry into the melted chocolate and place on the lined pan.  Once the pan is full, place it in the freezer for about 5 minutes or until the chocolte has hardened.

While the chocolate is cooling, make the cheesecake filling.  In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk, until smooth.  If it seems to thick, add a splash more of milk.

Spoon the cheesecake mixture into a pinping bag with a star tip. If you don't have a piping bag, scoop it into a large ziploc bag and snip off the corner.  Remove the straerries fromt he freezer and pipe in the cheesecake filling.  Top with a slivered almond and serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.

(Alternately, if you don't want to fix the creamcheese mixture you can by the philadelphia cream cheese cheesecake premade mixture to fill your strawberries!)
