Captain Cavedweller brought home some delicious strawberries the other day. They were big, plump, juicy and ripe. They actually tasted like strawberries – not like the somewhat bland picked-green variety we usually find in the stores this time of year.
Since I can’t leave well enough alone, I decided to stuff a few berries for fun. That was a tasty decision.
This is a fast and easy way to make your berries look super fancy and divine.
You'll need berries, whipped cream cheese, powdered sugar and chocolate for dipping. Chocolate is optional. Unless you're me. Then it is mandatory and necessary.
Cut the tops off the berries and hull. Mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar and then use a teaspoon to stuff filling into berries. I got involved with the stuffing and forgot to take pictures. Sorry!
You can melt some chocolate and dip the ends of your berries in it. You can also melt chocolate and make some fancy little swirlies to top the berries. All that is completely optional.
Or you can eat them plain and enjoy!
