Blue Cheese-Stuffed Strawberries

I was enjoying a salad with strawberries and blue cheese when the idea hit me to stuff the strawberries and serve them as an appetizer. It worked out great, and the flavors blend so nicely. —Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan

    This was a huge hit with my husband! I made them for him as a surprise treat for our anniversary, I did not find large strawberries so I just sliced the small ones in half and smeared the mix on.

    These strawberries are WONDERFUL! I have been using Kraft Roka cheese in those little glasses to stuff the berries with. I think those low ratings should be removed since they didn't bother to try the recipe.

    I have not made these yet but will be doing so soon. They look and sound great. I love anything that not only taste, looks great and is super easy to make and impress.

    Delicious! I cored the strawberries with a "tomato king" tool...worked great. To serve I cut some wooden skewers in half and stuck one in the bottom of each stuffed berry...then popped them in a short vase.

    I replaced the blue cheese with Philadelphia Indulgence Dark chocolate cream cheese. It is yummy. I blended the regular cream cheese and the chocolate and added slivered almonds to the mix. Then sprinkled more almonds on top before pouring the balsamic vinegar over them. I left some strawberries without vinegar topping. It is an acquired taste ! What an impressive dessert !
