My daughter, who loves cheesecake, made these for her Girl Scout troop on a campout and we decided these are simply to die for. They are easy to make and delightful to eat! We could have easily just eaten these the entire weekend! We ended up with about 4 dozen stuffed strawberries and they were gone in 60 seconds!
Mixing bowl, sturdy spoon, paring knife, resealable plastic bag.
1 pound large strawberries
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3-4 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Graham cracker crumbs (you can buy these in a box or smash your own, but you want them really fine)
At home, in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Add cream cheese mix to a zip-loc bag and this goes into your cooler for transport to camp.
You could also wash and core the strawberries at home and, likewise, load them into a container or bag for transport to camp. We opted to prep our strawberries in camp because we wanted to give the girls some paring knife experience.
In camp, squeeze your filling into the corner of the zip-loc bag and snip off the corner. Fill the strawberries with cheesecake mixture. Once strawberries are filled, dip the top in graham cracker crumbs.
Then you have to resist eating them all before dinner!
