Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

This is incredibly easy and quick to make, perfect for last minute events you need to bring something to. You will need:
1 lb. strawberries, cored
8 oz. cream cheese
4 tbs powdered sugar
Optional: dipping chocolate

Beat the room temperature cream cheese with the sugar. It’s easiest if you then put it into a ziplock bag and cut off the corner. Pipe the cream cheese mixture into the strawberries. It really tastes amazing this way, but I also like to then dip the ends of the strawberries into chocolate. Place them on wax paper to cool, then put them into the fridge until you serve them. Enjoy.

Bacon Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños

These were made for the benefit of my hubby, who did the actual grilling of these items. I do not care for anything spicy, but was told that they were delicious if you enjoy that sort of thing. I didn’t include the shallots, because I didn’t feel like it 🙂
These can be grilled or baked, you basically just grill them at the same temp as you would bake until the peppers are soft.
