How To: Make Cheesecake Filled Strawberries with Tupperware!

I was in the grocery store this morning and saw the strawberries were on sale buy one get one free! I have a going away party to attend tonight so I figured I’d get some to bring. I was trying to think of something else to bring with them, but there wasn’t very much “party-worthy” in my cupboards. Though I did find a box of No Bake Jello Cheesecake!At first I thought I’d make strawberry cheesecake. Then I remembered having seen people on pinterest pinning cheesecake-filled strawberries and thought, “hmmm I could fill the strawberries with the cheesecake!” I looked to see how they did it. People mentioned filling them with cheesecake mix with a spoon… but I had a better idea!Here’s how I did it in under 20 minutes start to finish:

First I used a paring knife to cut the tops of the strawberries off, and then cut the middles out. This was the step that took the longest (10 minutes for 2lbs of strawberries).*

*NOTE It may have taken me a bit longer then it will take you since I do have neuromuscular disease & I’m on coumadin (blood thinner) so I cut slow plus didn’t want to bleed all over the food. ;)

When I’m not busy creating stuff for my etsy shop, or working on D.I.Y. Projects for my daughter, I also sell Tupperware! It’s not your grandmothers Tupperware though.

They have some fabulous new stuff including the Whip ’N Prep™ Chef and my latest favorite gadget, the Squeeze It™ Decorator!!! I used both of these items to make it quick and easy!

I used the Tupperware Whip ‘N Prep™ Chef  to mix the Jello NoBake cheesecake mix. Took me under a minute to mix it!

Next I poured the cheesecake mix into the Squeeze It™ Decorator. It took me under 2 minutes to fill all the strawberries with this! it would have taken far longer by spoon and been far messier!

The other advantage to the Squeeze It™ Decorator over a spoon is it comes out looking fantastic! It comes with 5 tips (fine threads, closed star, open star, shell and filler) and I used the open star.

NOTE: Squeeze It™ Decorator is on sale til April 27th for $14 – regularly $23.50!

Next, I sprinkled the graham cracker crumbs on top that came in the box.

NOTE: If I didn’t have a boxed mix, I could have used my favorite Tupperware gadgets – Chop ’N Prep™ Chef or Smooth Chopper – to make the same mixture quickly from graham crackers!

Finally, I drizzled  chocolate on the top! You can do this with the Squeeze It™ Decorator fine threads tip! :)

It’s in the fridge cooling before the party in an hour! With just 20 minutes of time and a few awesome gadgets to make it quick and easy, I have a great treat!!!

Now I’m just sad to go say goodbye to my friend, who is moving to Brazil on Tuesday. :'(
