Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Chocolate-covered strawberries are one of my all-time favorite desserts! I decided to try something new this time though. I combined my other favorite dessert, cheesecake with the chocolate strawberries!

Merging these two desserts together gave us the delicious treat of a cheesecake stuffed strawberry!

I first saw the idea of a strawberry stuffed with cheesecake from Dessert Now, Dinner Later, but took it to the next level with a chocolate cheesecake filling and I am hooked!

How to Make Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

This recipe will comes together in a few easy steps!

Hollow out each strawberry. (slice off the bottom of each so the strawberry can stand up.

CHEESECAKE FILLING: Mix together the cream cheese, chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla. Mix it until it has no lumps.
PRO-TIP: Do not put the cream cheese in the microwave to soften. This could make the cheesecake runny. Also, some chocolate syrups are more liquidy than others. I used a relatively thicker one (the Ghirardelli brand). If you are using a very liquidy syrup, then you may want to decrease the amount in half, or start with half and add it to get to the consistency we would like.

Frequently Asked Questions & Tips

Why when I put the cheesecake stuffing in the strawberries did it turn a little runny?

So it could be 1 of 2 things (or both): If you overly softened the cream cheese, which can happen by trying to speed up the process and putting it in the microwave, your cheesecake can get runny.
Also if you used a very runny chocolate syrup. Some chocolate syrups are more liquid than others. I used a relatively thicker one (the Ghirardelli brand). If you are using a very liquid syrup, then you may want to decrease the amount in half, or start with half and add it to get to the consistency we are looking for.

How to Store

To store, place your strawberries in a container with enough height so that the frosting doesn’t reach the top.
They are best on the same day, but will still be good for another day or so.
You can also freeze these by individually wrapping them in foil or plastic wrap for a few weeks for a yummy frozen treat. 

Can They Be Prepared Ahead of Time?

Your stuffed chocolate cheesecake strawberries are best when prepared and eaten on the same day. However, the cream cheese mixture can be made the day before you need it.
Refrigerate the mixture and assemble the strawberries and cream cheese mixture when you plan to eat it. I recommend whipping the mixture before assembly to use it for the fluffiest texture.
