Valentine’s Day, a Holiday of love and affection to commemorate a martyred Saint or a Pagan Holiday of Fertility. Either way, it is a welcome excuse to give my husband and boys, frilly cards and treats.  I enjoy cooking…that may not be a shock right there I know, but I really do like cooking for my family so it is fun for me too. Win Win right?

My Husband is not so much of a big sweets eater and neither are my boys really, however, I am.  I mean, who doesn’t like sweets? In order  to make them something that they would enjoy and I could satisfy my sweet tooth too, I set about to make Chocolate Covered Strawberries Stuffed with a Greek Yogurt and Mascarpone Cheese Mix.  The Greek Yogurt replaced my normal cream cheese filling yet mixed with the Mascarpone cheese; you still had a thick, creamy filling to pair with the milk and dark chocolates. Of course I used both. Once I was on a roll there was no turning back right? Also, I learned that dipping the strawberries in chocolate and letting them cool was much easier to stuff than holding a stuffed strawberry above a double boiler of chocolate.

 

Chocolate Covered Stuffed Strawberries

Meal type Dessert
Misc Child Friendly, Serve Cold
Occasion Valentines day

Ingredients

  • 12 or More Strawberries (large enough to be cored for stuffing)
  • 2 Hershey Chocolate Bars
  • 2 Hershey Special Dark Bars
  • 1 cup Mascarpone Cheese
  • 5.3oz Vanilla Flavor Greek Yogurt ( This was 1 individual serving package of the yogurt)

Directions

Step 1
Val 1
Wash, Dry and Core your strawberries. I cut mine so that the were cored but also a bit off the top. Kinda like a little window. This way they were easy to fill after they were dipped.
Step 2
Melt your chocolate. I used a double boiler method to melt mine and keep it warm during the dipping process.
Step 3

Once the Chocolate is melted, Dip your Strawberries. Be sure to cover all the sides. Once dipped, lay them flat on a piece of parchment paper to cool and harden up
Step 4
As the strawberries are cooling, you can begin your filling. In a bowl, I combined the Mascarpone Cheese and the Vanilla Greek Yogurt. Mix well. I then placed this into a baggy to pipe the filling into the strawberries. Just push it into the corner of the bag and snip off the end with scissors.
Step 5

Fill your strawberries. Then... Enjoy. My youngest son was eating these as fast as I could filled them it seemed.

These little morsels of goodness really were decadent and sweet but not too sweet. The Greek Yogurt  mixed well with the Mascarpone Cheese to make a substantial filling with minimal ingredients. I do not have a single one left so they were approved by boys and Husband alike. Ok, I ate a few too.  I had too. Can you blame me? Val instagram

    Oh what this looks amazing. I would be happy with just the chocolate covered strawberries but that stuffing sounds amazing.

      I love just the dipped ones too. But, this filling is really good and not over powering sweet.

    Stuffed strawberries! And covered with chocolate. What a great idea! These are the perfect Valentine treat.

  3. 2-10-2013

    Wonderful dessert! One year my husband made me chocolate dipped strawberries and it was such a sweet gesture.

  4. 2-10-2013

    Good way to dress up your strawberries! I like the tangy bite from the fresh fruit together with the sweet filling and coating.

  5. 2-10-2013

    What pretty dipped strawberries! I’m loving the filling too.

  6. 2-10-2013

    These strawberries look like such a fantastic treat – love the filling!

  7. 2-10-2013

    I love the use of the Greek Yogurt. Amazing recipe, yum!!

    • 2-10-2013

      Thank you! It was an awesome addition and substitution for a cream cheese filling.

  8. 2-10-2013

    Yum! Love the mascarpone/Greek yogurt filling.

  9. 2-10-2013

    Great idea, Shannon! Combining mascarpone with Greek yogurt would be a perfect contrast for the sweet chocolates and strawberries. Love the visual of your son grabbing one as soon as it was made. Kids don’t lie (about food) so that is high praise indeed.

    P.s. Your tuxedo strawberries are adorable =)

      Thank you! He was awful lol He definitely doesn’t understand my need to photograph the pretty ones.

    Loving the little tuxedos on your strawberries: too darn cute!

  11. 2-10-2013

    SO cute! I’ve always wanted to try to make tuxedos…but need to work up the nerve :) I’m not too swift with the piping!

  12. 2-10-2013

    Absolutely NOTHING wrong with this!

  13. 2-11-2013

    oh my goodness! Love this! I am dying over that filling of Mascarpone Cheese and the Vanilla Greek Yogurt. Lovely!!! yum!!

  14. 2-11-2013

    One of my favorite treats!

  15. 2-11-2013

    I love chocolate covered strawberries, but I’ve never seen them filled. This is a great idea!

  16. 2-11-2013

    What an awesome idea to fill the strawberries! I love cream cheese. And chocolate. This is just super! :-)

  17. 2-12-2013

    These look divine! I love Masacrpone and Greek Yoghurt combo and I could easily finish off more than a few of these :)

  18. 2-13-2013

    Shannon, what a fantastic idea to fill these with that yummy concoction of mascarpone and greek yogurt. It’s like a guilt-free cheesecake filling. And the decorations on the strawberries is adorable – my favourite is the cute little tuxedo design. I’d gobble these up and think I was being healthy by eating fruit ;)

  19. 2-15-2013

    Great idea and so pretty too!

  20. 2-16-2013

    They are so cute! Bet they are delicious as well :) ~ Bea @ galactosemia in PDX

    I’m game for an old shoe as long as it’s dipped in chocolate, but these look amazing!
