This sumptuous Stuffed Strawberries With Mascarpone Cheese and Dark Chocolate recipe is a perfect for couples who prefer dining out but like their “dessert” at home.
The strawberries are fantasy food for lovers: finger-amiable, juicy and sweet.
Combined with the mascarpone cheese and the the dark chocolate, it’s a delicious treat to share with your sweetheart, both decadent and healthy.
12 large strawberries
4 ounces mascarpone cheese
1/2 teaspoon super-fine granulated sugar
2 drops vanilla extract
2 tablespoons grated dark chocolate (save a little for sprinkles)
1. Rinse and dry strawberries. With a paring knife, remove the hull and inner meat of the berry, forming a cavity in the berry. Also slit the sides of the strawberry in quarters just a little to allow for stuffing.
2. Mix stuffing ingredients until incorporated. With a small teaspoon, stuff the cheese filling into the cavity of the berry. Sprinkle additional grated chocolate on top. Serve cold.
