Cream cheese stuffed strawberries (lovingly dipped in graham crackers) – perfection.


I’m still on a cream cheese and strawberry kick this week and Dan isn’t complaining a bit. I made cream cheese stuffed strawberries (dipped in graham crackers and sprinkled with chocolate shavings) and they were all gone within five minutes. I ate two. Dan ate – and I kid you not – fifteen. In five minutes.


That has to be a record. By the time I got comfortable on the couch there were only three left. Only men get this kind of freedom without seeing it add on to their weight a mere hour later. Luckily he saved me from that by eating them!

Cream Cheese Stuffed Strawberries


One (small) package of strawberries

8 oz. cream cheese (low fat if it makes you feel better, like it did me).

3/4 cup powdered sugar.

2 oz. honey graham crackers (3 whole crackers)

Chocolate (for shavings).

Mix cream cheese and sugar until fully blended.

Cut ends of strawberries so that they can balance upright without falling.


Remove leaves.

Hollow out strawberries – try to avoid cutting straight through and creating a hole.


Fill strawberries with about 1/2 a tsp of cream cheese.


Dip strawberries in graham cracker crumbs.


Top strawberries with chocolate shavings.


Mini strawberry chocolate cheesecake bites.


Chocolate, graham crackers, fresh strawberries, and cream cheese.

Need I say more?

Dan ate 11 – yes, 11 – in one sitting.

Maybe I shouldn’t have made them so deceivingly small…..

Mini Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake Bites


2 oz. graham crackers (3 full sized ones), crushed.

2 tbsp butter, softened.

2 tbsp white granulated sugar.



8 oz. cream cheese (room temperature).

1 egg.

¼ cup white granulated sugar.

1 tsp vanilla.

9 dove chocolates.

8 small, fresh strawberries.


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Blend together graham crackers, butter, and sugar by hand.


Fill mini cupcake liners with a tsp of the graham cracker crust.


Bake for 5 minutes, then set aside.

Mix cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla until fluffy – be sure that no lumps remain.


Place ½ of a dove chocolate in each cupcake liner. I cut mine into strips to distribute the chocolate evenly, but it’s not necessary.


Top chocolate with about 1 tsp of the cream cheese mixture, filling the liner to the brim.


Bake for 10 minutes.

Top with a slice of strawberry and chocolate shavings.


Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.


Additional Information: This recipe makes about 16 mini cheesecake bites. Baking times and serving size will change depending on the size of cupcake liners you use. Because I used the smallest ones, they baked much faster.
