I’ve been making chocolate covered strawberries forever…  and for the last few years we’ve been enjoying Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries…  so it was only a matter of time before the two came together!  I have to tell you the results were amazing!

Seriously amazing!  These ended up being our anniversary dessert this year but I sense that I will be bringing them to LOTS of upcoming gatherings with no leftovers!

Not only are they decadent and easy, the best part is that they are NO bake…  perfect for summer time!

I’ve been making chocolate covered strawberries forever… and for the last few years, we’ve been enjoying Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries… so it was only a matter of time before the two came together!


  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup whipped topping such as Cool Whip
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate melts or chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate cookie crumbs

  • Wash strawberries and dry well.
  • Cut the tops off the strawberries and hollow them out using a small spoon or a strawberry huller (this is the type I use, works for tomatoes and strawberries).
  • Place the 3 tablespoons of chocolate chips in a small dish and melt on 50% power for about 20 seconds.. continue in 15-second increments until the chocolate is melted
  • Slice a thin piece of the bottom of each strawberry so it can stand up and pat it dry with a paper towel. Dip the bottom of each strawberry into chocolate and then into the cookie crumbs. Place on a parchment lined the pan.
  • Dip the bottom of the strawberries in chocolate before filling with chocolate cheesecake!
  • Place the 3/4 cup chocolate chips in a small dish and melt on 50% power for about 35 seconds.. continue in 20-second increments until the chocolate is melted. Cool.
  • With the mixer on medium, combine cream cheese, butter, vanilla, cocoa powder and sugar until fluffy. Add in cooled chocolate and mix on low until incorporated. Add in whipped topping and stir/mix just until combined.
  • Place chocolate cheesecake filling in a ziploc bag or a decorating dispenser like the one I’ve used above. Pipe into the strawberries (there will be lots of filling, don’t be afraid to overfill!).
  • Top with an additional piece of strawberry (I cut circles with a straw) and serve immediately or refrigerate up to 4 hours.

  1. I’ve only been cooking about a year (thanks to Pinterest!) and I have a Pinterest Board called Did It Deliciously! This is my newest Pin!! Easy peasy! Taking this to a family BBQ today. Hoping they transport well because they came out beautifully!! Thank you!

  2. Holly, I am allergic to corn syrup and Cool Whip and similar toppings are made from it. Any ideas about how well this might work if that last ingredient and step were omitted?

    1. Yes Gail, this should work just fine (or if you have another no bake cheesecake type filling, that would work as well). Your filling may be a little bit thicker but should still be great.

  3. I filled strawberries with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Spread like Nutella but this sounds like a great idea too! A different texture for sure. I’m definitely going to test it out! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Somebody call my dietician and my priest because its gonna get sinful up in here!!! Yummy!!!; maybe I”ll share if they get home in time lol no promises!!

  5. This looks and sounds awesome! I plan on trying to adapt it so that is has less sugar for diabetics, since I am diabetic. I know I can use Splenda and I will see if I can track down other ingredients that are sugar free or lower sugar.

  6. Love your recipe’s. My girlfriend & I discuss them everyday & decide which one’s we will do during the week. Thank you. It’s a very nice link.

    1. did you try the white chocolate if so how did it come out ? hasanyone try frozen strawberries to make this an can you freeze them after made and how long do they keep in frdge or freeer?

  7. You mentioned in the ingredients list that vanilla is needed…. But you didn’t say WHAT vanilla; vanilla pudding, vanilla essence??? What kind of vanilla, I’m not sure what to stop for?

  8. i,m going to try out the strawberries…it looks very very tasteful please send me your rescepis ok …thank you very much steve……..

  9. I love strawberry! Thank you for this sweet and great recipe. I will be on a holiday soon and the I will try this out at my home. So thanks

  10. These look perfect for my party on Monday!
    Two quick questions! When you cool the second batch of
    Chocolate chips, is it until it is just cool to the touch or hard. Also do they survive in the fridge over night?

  11. This looks yummy. I happen to have Philadelphia’s chocolate cream cheese so I know what I’m going to do with it now. :)

  12. This is the real thing. I never really liked the strawberry plunched in hot chocolate (as I don’t like hot chocolate) but knew strawberry and chocolate was a good match. Now I prepared this and it’s decadently delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I needed to adapt some things for my foodintollerances, so I used coconutcreme instead of butter, and coconutnectar instead of sugar, but it’s still awesome! Would you allow me to translate my version into French and Dutch?

    1. Hi Dani! I’m so glad you enjoyed these (we love them too!). Please feel free to send me a message regarding translation of the recipe!

  13. Print button still isn’t working properly. Pictures don’t print and text is stretched out over several pages. Please help!

  14. Hi Holly,
    Your Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries look fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing this awesome recipe with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great weekend and come back to see us real soon!
    Miz Helen

  15. These look wonderful. This would be a great recipe to bring to a summer get together or BBQ. Checking you out from full plate thursday! Dipping the bottoms of the strawberries in chocolate is a great idea to stabilize them so they sit upright! Thanks for the tip.


  16. Yes please I’ll take one or a a dozen :-) These look like decadent sweet delights! PINNED and checking out from full plate Thursday!!

  17. This is absolutely incredible and tasty, we served this yesterday for our women’s dieting group and it was wonderful. Strawberries are fantastic, we are using your recipe for great weight loss with strawberries

  18. This looks delicious! I would love for you share it on my Tasty Tuesday recipe link up here! Everything gets pinned and I would love to have you!

  19. I just realized the recipe calls for a pint of strawberries, and maybe that is more than 2lbs. Sorry, I am an Australian living in the US and even after many years, measurements still confuse me.

    1. I remember my great aunt always saying, a pints a pound the world around because a pint weighs 16 ounces and so does one pound. ;-)

  20. I just finished making them. I used 2lb of strawberries and I still have filling left over. I took note of what you said and really packed the filling in. No problem though, I just told my husband he will be having cheesecake filling as an ice cream topper.

    They are delicious, fiddly to make but worth the effort. I used a small Halloween pumpkin carving tool to hollow out the strawberries.

  21. I can’t wait to try this today. I just have one request. When using the “Print” feature is it possible to have it set so it just prints the recipe and the method without spaces for the pictures or with the pictures. I would like it to print on one page not spaced out over many.

    Other than that, keep up the great recipes, I have tried many of them. You even have us eating fish at least once a week because of your tilapia recipe.

    1. So glad you are enjoying the recipes! :) Thank you for letting me know. I am looking into the printing issue and hopefully can get it fixed!

      1. Usually when I print things like this, I save the whole thing to my computer first. Then I go into where I saved it, usually microsoft office, then I can delete the photos, make them smaller or whatever I want to do. Now that I am “older” I make the print a little larger….
        Anyway, this is a good way for me to print these kinds of things.
        Hope it helps
