These treats are a perfect mouthful of strawberries and sweet cream cheese filling—they make a delicious homemade gift for showers or holidays. If you don't have a cake decorating bag, you can use a spoon to fill the berries, then use a plastic sandwich bag with just the tip of one corner cut off to drizzle the chocolate. —Linda Baldt, Croydon, Pennsylvania
