Cream cheese and strawberries, a great combination! Add a little vanilla and almond extract, some powdered sugar and chocolate shavings, and you’ve got yourself a sweet little bite of heaven! Especially for Valentine’s Day which is only 3 days away now. These delightful little bites are also great for a crowd. Bring them to a brunch, or just make them for your loved ones. That’s what I plan on doing! These cream cheese stuffed strawberries can be made with a light cream cheese too, if your watching your fat content. I however used full fat, afterall your not filling your strawberries up to the point of it looking ridiculous! Enjoy them..

Ingredients

1 Pound Fresh Strawberries
8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Almond Extract
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
Chocolate shavings
Directions

First, rinse your strawberries well, remove any green stems, and with a small melon baller remove the inside of your strawberries. Set your hollowed strawberries aside. Next in a large mixing bowl, blend your cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and almond extracts. You may use a fork or a hand mixer.

To fill your strawberries, use a piping bag or plastic snack bag and fill with cream cheese mixture. Cut the end of your bag, and pipe into each strawberry. I didn’t use a tip with my bag by the way. Place on a plate and grate chocolate shavings over your delicious strawberries. You can chill them or eat them right away! They go well with some nice champagne too!
