The most perfect summer dessert -- easy, beautiful, no-cook and delicious

Print this recipe
Why bother making a strawberry cheesecake when you can fill perfectly ripe, sweet red strawberries with a luscious cheesecake filling that takes two minutes to make? It really is that easy, and it is out-of-this-world delicious. Seriously, this easy-to-make dessert is going to wow your guests and blow your mind.
Piping the filling into the berries may seem a bit intimidating, but give it a try and you’ll be surprised by how easy it is. You can substitute plump, juicy raspberries for the strawberries, too, if you like. It’s a remarkable no-cook summertime dessert.

15 minutes
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
½ cup confectioner's sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and cored
1 ounce semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, confectioner's sugar and vanilla until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a ½-inch round tip or use a resealable plastic bag.
Place the graham cracker crumbs in a small bowl.
Pipe the cream cheese mixture into the strawberries (snip off the corner of the plastic bag if using that for piping.)
Arrange the filled strawberries on a serving platter, filled side up. Once all the strawberries are filled, grate or shave the chocolate over the top.
Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
