Stuffed Strawberry

Stuffed strawberry is a kind of dessert often prepared by filling strawberries (red colored fruit native to Europe) with cream cheese mix. Chocolate mix is also used as the strawberry stuffing. Due to small size of the strawberries, it is difficult to spoon fill the strawberries with the stuffing mix; therefore, a piping bag is often used for preparing stuffed strawberries. The stuffing is passed through the piping bag into strawberries. Further, due to some complexity involved in this procedure, a few recipe variants suggest cutting off the top of the strawberries, scooping out the core, and then stuffing them with the desired stuffing ingredients.  

 

Preparation Overview of Stuffed Strawberries

Stuffed strawberry recipes suggest using fresh strawberries, softened cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and orange flavored liqueur as the ingredients.

 

The preparation process involves cutting off the top of strawberries and creating a cut from the tip till the bottom, before filling the strawberry with cream cheese mix through a plastic or piping bag. The cream cheese mix used as the strawberry stuffing is a blend of cream cheese, orange flavored liqueur, and sugar. The dish is often served after garnishing it with crushed graham crackers.

 

Stuffed Strawberry Recipe Variations

A couple of popular recipe variations of stuffed strawberry are discussed below:

 

  • Chocolate stuffed strawberries- the recipe for this dish suggests cutting the strawberries from the top, with the end of the cut portion slightly attached to the strawberry to look like a door or cap, before getting rid of the core of the fruit with the help of a sharp knife or strawberry huller, and filling it with chocolate stuffing. The chocolate filling used as the strawberry stuffing is a heated mix of shortening and chocolate chips. The cap is rotated back and the chocolate stuffed strawberry is enjoyed chilled. It can also be relished when the chocolate mix is still warm. 

 

  • Cream cheese and pecan stuffed berries- the strawberries are stuffed with a mix of softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, and sugar through a pastry bag or piping bag, and served chilled after garnishing with chopped pecans.
