Nothing oozes more romance than a chocolate covered strawberry…
Except maybe a Chocolate Dipped Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!!
Oh yeah, I went there.
I totally have a thing for strawberries and cheesecake. Check out this Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Cake if you don’t believe me! So last week I took a trip to Las Vegas with a friend of mine and we made a special stop at the Melting Pot for dinner.
We had some amazing cheese fondue (which I plan on recreating for you soon), and ended the night with a big pot of melted chocolate. Dipping the strawberries in the chocolate was my favorite part. Something about the juicy sweet strawberry in the rich decadent chocolate… so so good.
You don’t have to have a fondue pot to make these Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, just some milk chocolate chips and a large bowl!
The first thing you need to do is remove the stems from the freshly washed strawberries. I used a small melon baller to scoop out the stems and make a nice pocket for the cheesecake filling to sit.
Then I simply piped the cheesecake filling into each strawberry and set them on a wax paper lined baking sheet. I put them in the fridge while I got the chocolates melted for dipping.
Once the chocolate was ready I carefully dipped the bottom of the strawberry in the chocolate and laid it back down on the wax paper to harden. You can sprinkle the wet chocolate with some sprinkles or drizzle a little white chocolate over the top for a little extra flair.
To give the cheesecake portion of this delicious dessert a little more oomph, I crushed up some graham cracker crumbs and sprinkled the cheesecake with it.
I’m seriously smitten with these tasty little strawberries. I know you’ll fall in love too.

Chocolate Dipped, Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
- 2 lbs. fresh strawberries
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar, depending on how sweet you want it
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup graham crackers
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Wash the strawberries and pat dry with a paper towel. Use a melon baller to remove the stems and create a small whole in the strawberries for the cheesecake to sit. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl beat the cream cheese and sour cream until fluffy. Add in the vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and combined. Place cheesecake mixture into a piping bag or zip close bag, with the corner snipped off.
- Squeeze a little bit of the cheesecake mixture into each strawberry. Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet when done and let chill in the fridge until ready to dip.
- Place the chocolate chips in a metal or glass bowl that is big enough to sit on top of a small pot that's filled with 1 inch of water. Bring the pot of water to a boil and place the bowl of chocolate on top. Use a rubber spatula to gently stir the chocolates until they are smooth and completely melted. Turn stove off but leave chocolate bowl on top of pot to keep it warm while dipping.
- Dip the bottom of each strawberry in the chocolates and place back on the wax paper lined baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles while wet if desired. Sprinkle the cheesecake portion with crushed graham crackers. Let harden at room temperature before placing back in fridge until ready to eat. Enjoy!

I make a fruit dip that’s super delicious with strawberries among other fruits …It’s just 8oz cream cheese and a small jar of marshmallow cream blended together …
To elevate the flavor of the cream, add the zest of one lime. It enhances the cheesecake flavor. Also, if someone can’t have gluten, don’t use the graham cracker. Sprinkle with Sugar in the Raw for a nice crunch and a bit of sweet. If someone is diabetic, use Splenda blend or Truvia Blend in the cream. To give the presentation a bit of flair, add a mint leaf. That bit of green does magic–and it is eatable.
I’m looking to do a romantic surprise picnic for my husband when he gets off work. He LOVES cheesecake and chocolate and I love strawbwerries so this is the perfect thing to make the difference between a plain picnic and romantic surprise. Thank you for this! 😉
Delicious! I cut the time,,,make the cream filling (don’t need the sour cream) I used a small knife to fill the berries, then rather than crushing grahams and melting chocolate, I put chocolate chips in my mini processor and dipped the cream end of the berries into the shaved chocolate.
Thanks Martha! I love the modifications you made to it too! 🙂
Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump
out. Please let me know where you got your design. With thanks

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
I find this topic to be really something which I think I would
never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to
get the hang of it!

A person essentially help to make significantly
posts I might state. That is the first time I frequented your
website page and up to now? I surprised with the analysis you made to
create this actual publish amazing. Wonderful task!
Can the chocolate be substituted for caramel? I would love to use the recipe with caramel & graham cracker crumbles instead of the chocolate 🙂
I’ve been making these for years. I use several different fillings and outer coatings. They are always a favorite!
Thank you for share.It very nice.I like to eat chocolate.
I love that you dipped these in chocolate, I bet they are so good!
