Chocolate Dipped Stuffed Strawberries

Here is an easy treat that is made with another wonderful flavor combination:strawberries,chocolate & cheesecake!!!These strawberries are filled with cheesecake and dipped into chocolate!Is your mouth watering yet?The best part?It is essentially a no-bake recipe.You use your favorite store-bought cheesecake!Fun & easy...we all need days like that don't we?
1 pound of strawberries
your favorite cheesecake,slightly softened
melting chocolate
assorted toppings
   After washing and letting dry,slice each berry down the middle without going all the way through(we do not want 2 pieces,we want the berry to remain together at the top).
  Scoop about 1 tsp. of your favorite cheescake and stuff into the center of the berry.Squeeze together slightly.Place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
   Remove the berries from the refrigerator.Melt the chocolate.I used both white chocolate and milk chocolate here.Carefully dip each berry into the desired chocolate and place on a parchment paper baking sheet.Sprinkle the desired topping on while the chocolate is still wet.Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator to set until ready to serve.Because the strawberries are cut,these are best served on the day they are made.
   Oh, and let's not forget our football fans!These berries are dipped into milk chocolate and then I piped on the details with white chocolate.Fun!
**Save some cheesecake for tomorrow's idea!
