The Edible Gift Worth Giving

If you’re looking for an edible gift to give someone these cheesecake stuffed strawberries would be perfect, they feel like a present. You can make them ahead of time, wrap them up, and chill until you’re ready to give them to someone you love.

Chill Until Ready to Serve

And if you’re serving them as a dessert (HELLO EASY) make them ahead of time, keep them in the fridge, serve whenever you need them. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries can be made ahead of time and kept chilled for up to 8 hours. At some point, they get juicy and can slough off their chocolate so don’t try to make 1-2 days ahead of time, you’ll have a mess on your hands.

I don’t recommend putting them out at a party until you’re really ready to enjoy them because they do melt, and the filling will fall out. And then they’re a mess. Always serve them well chilled and straight out of the fridge.

Why? Because they’re fun to make, don’t require any dangerous tools, and kids can practically make them on their own. You only need to guide them. And they are something a little more elevated and special than just chocolate covered strawberries.

And because you’re NOT cooking or baking these berries I HIGHLY recommend hand washing before you begin making these. And while you’re making them use a hand sanitizer like Klean to keep your hands as clean as possible. You can grab 10% off your order right when you click through my link and use code Klean10.

Can I Make These WITHOUT Dipping Them in Chocolate?

Of course! They’re even EASIER that way. Just stuff and chill and your cheesecake stuffed strawberries are ready to enjoy! You could even add the graham cracker crumbs to the top where the chocolate would have been for a little crunchy treat.

What Kind of Chocolate Should I use For Chocolate Dipped Strawberries?

The best kind of chocolate to use for this recipe is the chocolate you already have in your cupboard. Milk, white, dark, or even candy melts work just fine. If you are BUYING chocolate to dip strawberries I always say go with what YOU like best. For me that’s milk chocolate for others in my house it’s dark chocolate. You do you! Just buy chocolate for melting as it melts best.

Can I use Chocolate Chips for ChocolateDipped Strawberries?

YES! Often times chips are not made to melt. You CAN make chocolate chips work for chocolate-dipped strawberries BUT they require a little babysitting in the double boiler, melt them a little slower than melting chocolate.

And if they’re acting funny add a tiny bit of cooking oil, just 1-2 drops to help them melt smoothly. Do Not Add Butter to chocolate to make it melt smoothly, it has water in it and will seize your chocolate. That’s why you dry your berries completely because ANY water will cause your chocolate to get hard.

Tools Needed to Make Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

You will need:

  • a piping bag to fill the berries, you COULD use a zipper top bag but they’re a one use plastic bag you have to throw out, better to use a piping or frosting bag which works better and is washable
  • a double boiler to melt chocolate OR try this cool double boiler insert you can use with ANY saucepan
