Stuffed Strawberries

These nibblets of joy are perfect for any party table.  Everyone loves strawberries and cream.  This is one more way to serve it!  A friend introduced these to me and said, “I ate about 10 of them in one sitting and was sad when none were left over after my party!”  I would have to agree!  They are absolutely lovely and a burst of strawberries and cream in your mouth.  When you are sipping on a cup of Paris tea sitting out on your porch, enjoy these delightful fruits!  (I know I don’t get to do that much either, but we can always dream!)

This recipe is best to make at the serving site.  I tried to make them at home, then carry them to a party.  The strawberries fell over, and frosting got everywhere.  They were delicious but not very pretty. They were still a huge hit!  When I am traveling somewhere, I make the trifle below.  Same great flavor, easier travel!

1 8-ounce block cream or mascarpone cheese
½ cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pint strawberries
A block of chocolate or chocolate sprinkles (garnish)

Wash and slice the tops of the strawberries off.  In a bowl, cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar.  Add the vanilla.   Cut the strawberries from the tips to 1/3 from the bottom.  Place on the serving platter.  With a large plastic bag in a glass measuring cup, scoop the cream cheese frosting into the large plastic bag.  Squeeze the frosting towards one corner, and clip a small part off the bottom of the corner.  (You are making a piping bag.  If you have a piping set, use the large piping tip.)  Then pipe the frosting into the middle of the strawberries.  Sprinkle with chocolate shavings or chocolate sprinkles.

Stuffed Strawberry Trifle

2 pints of strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 round angel food cake
2 (8 ounces) blocks cream or mascarpone cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 ( tub) of Cool Whip
1 cup chocolate chips

Wash and slice all but two of the strawberries and combine them with the sugar in a bowl.  Set aside  Slice the angel food cake about 1 cm thick.  With an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese and powdered sugar.  Then slowly fold in 2/3s of the Cool Whip and set aside.

In a trifle bowl, *lay down enough angel food cake to cover the bottom of the bowl.  Generously place the strawberry slices with some of the juice over the angle food cake.  Then spread ½ of the cream cheese mixture over the top.  Sprinkle 1/3 cup of chocolate chips on top.*  Repeat from * to *.  Place angel food cake to fit.  Spread the remaining cool whip on top.  Slice the two remaining strawberries and arrange in a pretty fashion on top.  Sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup of the chocolate chips.

Serves 10-12.
