Chocolate Stuffed Strawberries are easy to make and delicious. They are a great no bake dessert recipe. These strawberries are the perfect bite to serve for Valentine’s Day festivities.
Chocolate Stuffed Strawberries for your Valentine’s Day
Chocolate and Strawberries are a fantastic combination. In fact, I think the argument could be made that it’s better than peanut butter and jelly; just saying.
There are so many ways to bring these two ingredients together; who knew?
A chocolate stuffed strawberry is just one way to serve this dynamic duo of flavor.
Of course these strawberries, that are filled with a no bake chocolate mousse, are perfectly served as is. Or, you can grab a few other key ingredients and turn them into a kid-friendly, chocolate stuffed strawberry critter.
It’s like combining craft time with food; perfect! As a mom, combining crafts and food is a two for one activity.
This no bake recipe is perfect for family food fun, but equally awesome for classroom parties and other gatherings. They make Valentine’s day extra special and sweet.
Here is the recipe to hull, stuff and enjoy….
- Fresh strawberries
- 4 oz. PICS frozen whipped topping, thawed
- ½ cup PICS mini semi-sweet morsels
- Chinese noodles
- PICS mini marshmallows
- Candy eyes (optional)
Wash the strawberries. Let them fully dry.
Cut off the top of the strawberry. Hollow the inside of the larger part of the strawberry by using a small paring knife or serrated spoon. Cut the tip of the strawberry off so that the strawberries will stand.
Using a rolling pin, roll the mini marshmallows flat. Cut out a mini heart by using clean kitchen shears or a mini fondant cutter that’s heart shaped.
Insert the marshmallow heart into one end of the Chinese noodle. Insert the other end into the top of the strawberry you have set aside. Repeat to add two antennas per stuffed strawberry.
Melt the chocolate morsels in a microwave in a glass bowl on high for one minute. Stir the chocolates once you remove them from the microwave to complete the melting process. Let them cool just long enough that it’s not steaming hot, but not cool enough to begin to set. Fold the melted chocolate into the whipped topping.
Using a piping utensil, fill the strawberry & continue generously over the top so that you can add two candy eyes and complete the stuffed strawberries with the top that holds the antennas.
Candy eyes: These can be found at your local craft store.
Chinese noodle note: Depending on the length of the Chinese noodles, you may want to break them in half to create the antennas.
Simplify? Yes, you can simply wash the strawberries. Hull them. Keep them whole or cut them in half and serve them with the chocolate filling as a dip if you want to simplify the deliciousness. It’s still the same wonderful combination of flavor.
