Total time: 10 mins

Simple and Delicious. Ready to enjoy in 10 minutes and can be made ahead of time. Gluten – Free
Ingredients
  • 10 Strawberries
  • Splash of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz of room temperature cream cheese ( I use low-fat)
  • 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Cut the tops off the strawberries and with a sharp knife cut an X on the bottom of the strawberries- do not cut through the strawberry.
  2. In a medium size bowl mix – cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
  3. Place mixture into a pastry bag or a plastic bag with the tip cut off and pipe in the filling.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave ( make sure not to burn the chocolate)
  5. Drizzle chocolate on top of the strawberries.
  6. Enjoy

Notes:  I did this from memory when I made them up today and forgot that it is best to slice the strawberries from the bottom and then use the cut off top end as a way to stand them up. As a result I struggled to stand these things up and they kept flopping and making a mess.  They still taste great though 🙂

I made these again tonight  (April 16, 2013) for a lunch date with a friend tomorrow.  I remembered to cut them the right way this time and they look much better!
