Heavenly Filled Strawberries
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 (I'll leave this out next time)
Remove stems from 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.
***It's very pretty but I found it difficult to spread the strawberry and fill by myself, if you have a partner it may work okay.
WW points plus value = 1 point per strawberry
