•1 pound fresh strawberries
•2 packages (one 8 ounces, one 3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
•1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
•1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Remove stemsfrom strawberries; cut a deep "X" in the tip of each berry. Gently spread berries open.
In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and extract until light and fluffy. Pipe or spoon about 2 teaspoons into each berry; sprinkle with chocolate. Chill until serving.
Yield: about 3 dozen.
