"We liked the way these tasted. I gave it only three stars due to the time and difficulty filling the strawberries. Neither a spoon nor a pastry bag worked well ... again, very messy. I will keep the recipe and look in kitchen stores for something to use to fill the strawberries."

"These are pretty to look at and taste good, too. I found the filling to be took thick to push through my Pampered Chef Pastry Decorator, so I thinned it with some half n half and it was still too thick. I think I will put some Cool Whip in the cream cheese mixture next time to make it easier to push thru the nozzle."

"These look lovely, not sure about the almond essence though. I'm going to make these with ' Philadelphia Sweet Chilli ' cream cheese, which also has pineapple and mango in. Topped with a sprinkling of ground pepper to bring out the flavour of the strawberry, should go well with some nice rose' wine."

"These were beautiful and delicious and were a hit on the dessert table at our church potluck. They would be lovely for showers or receptions or anytime a fancy-looking, delicious dessert is needed. I used chocolate sprinkles rather than grating chocolate -- much easier, and I thought it looked just as nice."

"These were the first to go at a cocktail party that I hosted. When I do them again, I'm going to split the strawberry in half and pipe a star to filling on it instead of splitting the strawberry. Also I will top with a curly shaving of chocolate instead of grating because you can barely taste the chocolate on it."

"I followed this recipe verbatim. The filling was delicious -- loved the almond extract. However, I must be a real dummy/klutz in the kitchen. I had a very hard time "stuffing" the berries. My husband and I were both laughing because they kept splitting apart and I would put those on a different plate -- as duds. Instead of having about 25 pretty filled strawberries, I only had about 18 filled! We ended up dipping the split berries for our dessert. I'm going to take these to a little get together, but I'm just going to put cocktails picks in the strawberries and put the dip in a pretty glass bowl! -- It works for me :-)"

"I have made this exactly and with a white chocolate-cream cheese icing. I replaced 3 oz of the cream cheese with unsalted butter (1/2 stick) and replaced the sugar with 3oz of melted white chocolate. If the little bit of butter is a concern for some, use light cream cheese. I am not one who is crazy about white chocolate but the cream cheese tones done the sweetness and it is really good with the strawberries. Plus, if you wish, you can omit the sprinkling of grated chocolate."

For a different kind of topping, I've used crushed up graham crackers before (makes it taste like strawberry cheese cake) and I've also crushed up Oreo cookies and sprinkled on top. Delicious! Best to use a piping bag or use a baggie and cut a small hole in the tip to get the filling into the "x" - It's perfectly acceptable to squirt the leftover filling directly into your mouth! :-)"
