Strawberry Cheesecake Jewels

I found the coolest recipe recently.  Basically, strawberries stuffed with a cream cheese filling and a bit of white chocolate on the bottom outside of the fruit.  I was going to make it for dessert tonight but decided I was far to lazy to do it the way the recipe said I should.  I decided to take a shortcut and make the recipe my own.  Super easy and so good that my dearest daughter said that it was the BEST DAY EVER because of the dessert.  Well, that makes it a hit in my book.  😉

STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE JEWELS

Filling:

2 TB sour cream

5 TB whipped cream cheese

½ tsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. sugar

Chocolate Drizzle:

⅓ C. chocolate chips

2 TB sour cream

½ tsp milk

1 C. fresh strawberries

¼ C. crushed graham cracker crumbs

1.  Wash strawberries and remove tops.  Cut in half and set on a platter.

2.  Combine all filling ingredients.  Put into a plastic baggie, squeeze out air and snip off a very small section of the corner to create a small hole (like a piping bag)

3. Gently melt and mix the ingredients for the chocolate drizzle in a small saucepan on low heat.

4.  Pipe a small amount of the filling onto each strawberry halve.

5.  Drizzle a little chocolate onto each strawberry ‘jewel’.

6.  Sprinkle the tops with a pinch or two of the graham cracker crumbs.

Refrigerate to set… about an hour.  Serve.
