Strawberry cheesecake love bites

Who else has a large bowl full of fresh strawberries from their garden that they need to do something with?13442327_10206663286565524_7175707329866589239_n

June is strawberry season around here in NH and our plants have been pretty busy this year. We have hulled washed and eaten many of them but then what? On Father’s day my daughter made up some Jell-o cheesecake pudding and she was going to hull out the strawberries and dip them in a graham cracker crumb. The day got away from us and it never happened. The next day my husband decided to take things into his own hands and he sliced the strawberries in half, put some of the cheesecake filling and roll in the crumbs. While they tasted good, they were a pain to pick up and the proportions were all off.

With larger berries you could scoop out some of the inside flesh to make room for the filling. My berries are not that large so I was playing with a few ideas, my final decision was to take the crumbs and put them on a plate. Take my cleaned berries and put a dollop of the cheesecake filling on the top and then place them upside down in the crumb mixture – BRILLIANT!
Proportions were perfect and everyone loved them and talk about easy; not sure why it took me so long to make these little nuggets of love bites. Try them you won’t be disappointed.

Cover the bottom of you plate with the crumbs, put a small dollop of cheesecake on top of the strawberry and place it cheesecake side down on to the crumbs and enjoy!
