The Most Amazing Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries:
This crowd favorite recipe is so quick and easy and impossible to mess up! Also, it is highly unlikely to leave you with any leftovers to store. However, things do happen, so here are a few tips just in case.
- Cutting: Use a small pairing knife or melon baller to easily core out the strawberries.
- Filling: If you do not have a piping bag you can put the filling in a ziploc bag and cut off the corner instead.
- Graham Cracker Crumb: Crush about 4 rectangular graham crackers by placing them in a resealable bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin.
- Patriotic Theme: Add a blueberry on top or drizzle with a blue white chocolate for the full red, white, and blue color scheme.
- Storing: Place in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. If you are making these ahead, store the graham cracker crumb separately and sprinkle on at the last minute since it will get less crisp as it sits.
