Prepare the strawberries by washing them and removing the stem. Use a strawberry corer or knife to hollow out each strawberry.
Cut off a small slice of the bottom of each strawberry to create a flat surface for the strawberry to stand up on. Set aside for now.
Using a mixer on medium high speed, whip the cream cheese, chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, and vanilla until completely smooth with no lumps.
Mix in whipped topping and beat until fully incorporated and the mixture is light and fluffy.
Remove the filling from the mixer and place into a piping bag with a star tip.
Pipe the filling into each strawberry.
Top off with optional mini chocolate chips or chocolate sprinkles.
Serve immediately or refrigerate the strawberries until ready to serve.
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.
