These quick and easy Peanut Butter Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries will be a hit at any shindig! Fresh strawberries stuffed with a peanut butter cream cheese filling, then dressed up for the party with some crushed peanuts and fun sprinkles.
medium to large fresh strawberries, washed & dried
ounces chopped dark chocolate
Crushed peanuts, for garnish
package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
cup creamy peanut butter
cup powdered sugar
teaspoon vanilla extract
Decorative sprinkles, for garnish
Cut the top (leaves) off of each strawberry. Use a small sharp knife (or melon baller) to carefully hull the center of the berries.
Place the crushed peanuts in a small bowl and set aside. Place the chocolate in a separate small bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds. Continue melting in 10 second increments if necessary.
Slice off a bit of the tip of each strawberry so it can stand up; stand to dry on a paper towel. Dip the bottom of each strawberry into chocolate, then roll in the crushed peanuts. Place on a parchment lined pan and refrigerate while you make the filling.
Place the cream cheese in a large bowl and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add peanut butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar and beat until combined and smooth, adding more powdered sugar and/or peanut butter to taste.
Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 2D Wilton star tip (a zipper bag with a corner cut off will work in a pinch!) Fill each strawberry with the peanut butter cheesecake mixture, then sprinkle with festive sprinkles or more crushed peanuts. Place finished strawberries on a serving tray and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Prepared stuffed berries can be made and refrigerated up to 4 hours in advance.
