These are so easy and yet so good! You can make them decadent with a cream cheese filling or healthy with a yogurt filling.

Ingredients

CREAM CHEESE FILLING

8 oz
cream cheese
4 Tbsp
powdered sugar (i like mine sweet so i actually used about 6 tablespoons)
1 tsp
vanilla extract (can also use almond, lemon or orange)
1/8 c
dark chocolate chips

YOGURT FILLING

10 oz
vanilla or lemon flavored (yoplait whipped is thicker than normal yogurt))
granola

24 STRAWBERRIES

Step-By-Step

1Wash and pat dry the strawberries.
2FOR 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.
3Slice 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).
4In medium sized bowl, add cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until all is combined.
5Scoop 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.
6Pipe the filling into the middle of the opened 4 points; squeeze and pull up mounding filling slightly at the point.
7With a small flat grater, grate the chocolate chips over the stuffed strawberries.
NOTE: This can be made ahead of time. Just cover and refrigerate.
8FOR YOGURT FILLED STRAWBERRIES:
Using a paring knife or strawberry huller, remove tops and hulls of strawberries leaving a nice center for filling.
9Fill with yogurt and top with granola
