A delightful start to an afternoon brunch
or the finishing touch to an elegant dinner party, these classy
strawberries will steal the show at any springtime gathering.
- 24 to 36 medium strawberries
1 cup (6 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Remove stems and part of inner parts of
strawberries to form a small bowl. Cut a sliver off of bottom
of each strawberry so that strawberry will stand on end; discard
- Place morsels and cream in small, microwave-safe
bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; stir until
creamy. If necessary, microwave at additional 10-second intervals,
stirring just until morsels are melted. Let cool slightly.
- Place cream cheese and powdered sugar
in large mixer bowl. Beat until creamy; beat in chocolate mixture.
- Place cream cheese mixture in large pastry
bag with star tip or spoon into gallon-size heavy-duty plastic
bag with a 1/4-inch-wide opening cut at one corner. Pipe mixture
into strawberry cups, filling cups completely and then mounding
mixture on top of each strawberry. Refrigerate for at least 1
hour. For best flavor, consume within 24 hours.
Makes 24 to 36 strawberries (2 to 3 dozen).
