Ingredients

  • 1 pound large strawberries
  • 8 oz. cream cheese , softened (can use 1/3 less fat)
  • 2 Tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon splenda or stevia , omit and use 2 tbs powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 4 ounce chocolate , semi-sweet or milk

Instructions

  • Thoroughly wash and rinse strawberries.
  • Cut off the top of the strawberries. Use paring knife or melon baller to hollow out a small hole in the center of the strawberries.
  • To be on the safe side slightly cut the bottoms off so that they can sit flat in an upright position.
  • Beat or mix together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Place into a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe into each strawberry.
  • Melt chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave, stirring frequently every 20-30 seconds. So that is doesn’t scorch or burn. It usually takes about 2 minutes.
  • Stir the chocolate continuously until it is smooth, shiny, and completely melted.
  • Spoon chocolate into a plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner or just use a skewer or tooth pick to drizzle the melted chocolate over the strawberries.
  • Refrigerate until serving time.
