Cream Cheese-Stuffed Raspberries



Here's a little treat for you raspberry lovers that I adapted from an idea I found on Pinterest. These little beauties are great any time of day. They're yummy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Trust me, I've eaten them for all three & every time they were delish.



Read this original post from Moore Minutes to see how she made her Frozen Yogurt Stuffed Raspberries & a few other healthy snack ideas.

For some reason, the first thing I thought of when I read the post was, "Oohh! Wouldn't these be great stuffed with cream cheese? And chocolate. Yeah, chocolate."

And when I saw some beautiful raspberries the other day, I decided to give it a try.

Want to try some for yourself? Here's what to do:

Wash the berries & let them dry.



Mix together 8 oz. of softened cream cheese & 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. (This is plenty to fill about 2 cups of berries.)



Pipe the filling into the raspberries using a pastry bag or mechanical pastry bag. You may be able to do this with a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off if you don't have the pastry bag & tips. Just be sure the cream cheese is softened & the tip is not too small, otherwise it's tough to pipe it out.




After that, I added a little chocolate chip to each one just because I think chocolate makes almost anything better.




They're pretty & yummy. In fact, they're pretty yummy.


There really are a ton of possibilities with this & many of them are listed in the original post.

My sister made her version by stuffing mini chocolate chips in the berry & topping with a little whipped cream.

I've got you thinking now, don't I? What version will you try?


I'm sharing this post with a few of these friends. Visit them for more inspiring ideas!
