Instructions

FILLING
  1. Combine heavy cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar and 4 tablespoons instant pudding mix with mixer on medium until thick and fluffy. Fold in banana & pineapple. Place in a ziploc and refrigerate.
STRAWBERRIES
  1. Wash & dry strawberries. Cut tops off and using a tomato corer, scoop out the center. Cut bottom off and make sure the strawberry stands upright. Stand on a paper towel to dry.
  2. Melt chocolate chips for about 25 seconds in the microwave, stir in butter until smooth. Dry each strawberry with a paper towel and dip in chocolate and then in nuts. Place on parchment paper and refrigerate 5 minutes or until set.
  3. Cut a corner off of the Ziploc bag and pipe filling into each strawberry. Top with desired toppings (chocolate, sprinkles, cherries).
