Ingredients

  • 30 medium to large fresh strawberries washed & dried
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate chopped
  • peanuts crushed; for garnish
  • 1 package 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Decorative sprinkles for garnish

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

Prepared stuffed berries can be made and refrigerated up to 4 hours in advance.
