Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Wish Farms strawberries, large
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened (can use low fat)
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Graham cracker crumbs
  • 16 oz dark chocolate, melted

Directions

  • Rinse strawberries, cut off the green tops, and hull out the center using a small paring knife.
  • Pour graham cracker crumbs onto a plate.
  • In a bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.  Stir until smooth.
  • Spoon the cream cheese mixture in a plastic baggie and push contents into a corner of the bag.  With a pair of scissors clip the corner of the bag.
  • In a separate bowl, melt the dark chocolate morsels in the microwave for approximately 1 minute.  It is best to melt in 30 second incriminates stirring each time.
  • Set up an assembly line: 1) pipe the cream cheese mixture into the center of a strawberry.  2) dunk the closed end of the strawberry into the melted dark chocolate. 3) immediately roll into the graham cracker crumbs.
  • Store the berries in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • A good idea for easy handling is to place individual berries in a muffin wrapper.
