Strawberries are my favorite fruit, I love to simply cut the tops off and eat them just like that, or whip some cream, sugar and a tough of vanilla to dip them in. YUM!!! What other fruit confers up thoughts of love & romance?

I believe this simple recipe will be perfect for you to fix that special someone or to prepare for a small party. .

Ingredients

  • 1 pt
    fresh strawberries
  • 1 pkg
    (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c
    confectioners' sugar, or to taste
  • 2 Tbsp
    orange flavored liqueur, or to taste ( like grand marnier )
  • 6-8

  • 1 box
    of fresh mint
  • OPTIONAL

  • 1/4 c

How to Make Sexy Strawberries

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and stand upright on the cut side.
  2. Make a cut 3/4 of the way down from the tip of the strawberry towards the bottom.
  3. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and liqueur until smooth in a mixer or a food processor.
  4. Place into a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe into each strawberry. Pipe a bit of the cream on the plate where you want to arrange on a serving platter. This will prevent the strawberries from sliding around.
  5. Garnish the serving plate with a star of the cream squeezes out in different places and place a few fresh blueberries or blackberries and mint leaves for a pop of color.
  6. A little chocolate is a great alternative: take a 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 20 seconds and stir. Microwave an additional 10 seconds until chocolate is melted and pourable. With a spoon, drizzle over the tops of the strawberries and diagonal across the plate.
