My simple stuffed strawberries are perfect for dressing up any occasion of a sophisticated touch. This simple chocolate whipped cream has a light, silky, mousse-like texture that turns plain strawberries into a decadent dessert. The filling can be used as a dip for fruit, a or even a topping on cakes. I love the look of the mousse piped into strawberries, like I did in my No-Bake Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries so I just had to create a variation on the idea!
These fancy looking treats are sooo easy to make and are guaranteed to impress! They start with fresh fruit. Rinse and dry your strawberries.
Hull strawberries with a sharp knife by cutting a cone shape out of each center.
Slice off tips so they can stand on their own.
Fill a piping bag fitted with a start tip, or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped off, with chocolate whipped cream mousse (recipe below).
Skip the cocoa powder and simply fill your strawberries with whipped topping, or a can of whipped cream!
