Inside-Out Chocolate Strawberries

Strawberry season is approaching and I am so excited! It is my favorite fruit! Serve them with chocolate and I really can't resist, so I knew I had to try out this recipe!! They were really good. John liked them better this way than dipped in chocolate. The filling is nice and creamy. Just don't make them too far in advance, the strawberries go soft, so you want to eat them within 12 hours or so (the recipe said 24, but I would suggest sooner).
Recipe from: cooks recipes
24 to 36 medium strawberries
1 cup (6 ounces) semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup powdered sugar
  1. Remove stems and part of inner parts of strawberries to form a small bowl. Cut a sliver off of bottom of each strawberry so that strawberry will stand on end; discard slivers.
  2. Place morsels and cream in small bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds; stir until creamy. If necessary, microwave at additional 10-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Let cool slightly.
  3. Place cream cheese and powdered sugar in large mixer bowl. Beat until creamy; beat in chocolate mixture.
  4. Place cream cheese mixture in large pastry bag with star tip or spoon into gallon-size heavy-duty plastic bag with a 1/4-inch-wide opening cut at one corner. Pipe mixture into strawberry cups, filling cups completely and then mounding mixture on top of each strawberry. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Makes 24 to 36 strawberries (2 to 3 dozen).
