Chocolate Strawberry Valentines

These are a version of the Strawberry Valentines, but these are on a Devil's Food rectangular shaped cupcake. The benefit of these is you CAN make these ahead of time. I usually make the cupcakes, pipe the strawberry cream cheese on, add the strawberry filling, cover and refrigerate. When ready to eat I put on a dollop of whipped cream and a strawberry fan.
