Directions:
Prepare strawberries:

With a knife, cut the tops from the berries leaving a flat top. Place the flat side on a cutting board with the point facing up. Next, without slicing through the entire berry, make 3 cuts dividing the berry into six equal portions (leaving them attached on the flat end of the berry.)

Next, mix all remaining ingredients with a spoon or mixer until smooth and creamy.

Place mixture into decorating bag with star tip or place into a plastic zipper bag with one corner cut open to use to fill strawberries.

Fill each berry with cream cheese mixture through the point (open) end of the prepared berries. As you do, the "petals" will open up to reveal the surprise in each berry.

These are delicious on their own as an appetizer or side as well as when used as a garnish. Of course, floating in chocolate syrup with a dollop of vanilla ice cream is a wonderful snack or dessert!
