Tips for Making Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Every time I make this recipe, I get so many compliments. Everyone is in love with them! You definitely won’t have any leftovers either. Here are a few tips for making these cheesecake-stuffed strawberries.
- Cutting: Use a small paring knife or melon baller to get the center out of the strawberry. This is the longest part of the process, but it’s so worth it.
- Filling: If you do not have a pastry bag you can put the filling in a ziploc bag and cut off the corner instead. It works the same way, and you can even put a piping tip in the bottom to get the cute design!
- Graham Cracker Crumb: You can make your own graham cracker crumbs by putting the graham crackers in a zip lock bag. Grab a rolling pin and hit the bag until they are a nice small crumb. You could also put them in a food processor and pulse them until fine.
- Dip In Chocolate: It is no surprise that these strawberries are perfect dipped in chocolate. Pick your favorite chocolate and melt it in a bowl in 15 second intervals in the microwave. Once it is nice and creamy, dip your strawberries in it and set them on parchment to firm up. They are the perfect treat!
These cheesecake stuffed strawberries are so easy to make and they are perfect for any holiday. I love them because they actually store well for a few days! You don’t have to rush right before an event to have these ready. Here is how to store your leftovers.
In the Refrigerator: 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.

Do you have any good recipes for pork chops ?

I also like to cut berries in half leaving some green stem on each half. Then, lying them cut side up on serving platter, I pipe on a bit of the cream cheese mixture and top with a blueberry or some grated chocolate, or even sprinkles – depending on my mood and the occasion.
PS: the stems can be used as little “holders.”
Fantastic Idea! Thank You!
Lovely recipe, gotta give it a try.
