DirectionsWash and pat dry the strawberries.FOR CREAM CHEESE FILLED STRAWBERRIES:
Stand strawberries up with the point up and the top on a cookie sheet. They should sit flat. You may have to cut the green leaves and/or part of the strawberry off to make it sit flat.Slice the strawberry through the point down toward the bottom. DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY DOWN. Turn strawberry and make a counter-cut the opposite way. Again DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY DOWN. Pull all 4 points gently open (like a flower).In medium sized bowl, add cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until all is combined.Scoop filling into a wilton disposable bag with a large star tip.
NOTE: if you don't have wilton bags, you can stand a ziploc bag in a tall glass, fill, then snip the end off to pipe the filling.Pipe the filling into the middle of the opened 4 points; squeeze and pull up mounding filling slightly at the point.With a small flat grater, grate the chocolate chips over the stuffed strawberries.
NOTE: This can be made ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate.FOR YOGURT FILLED STRAWBERRIES:
Using a paring knife or strawberry huller, remove tops and hulls of strawberries leaving a nice center for filling.Fill with yogurt and top with granola
