- CHOCOLATE STUFFING
- ½ c sugar
- 2⅔ tbs milk
- 2½ tbs butter
- ½ c semisweet chocolate chips
- ¼ c finely chopped pecans if desired
- CHEESECAKE STUFFING
- 1 (8-oz) pkg cream cheese softened
- 3 tbs milk or cream
- ½ tsp almond extract
- 1-2 tbs powdered sugar
- DIRECTIONS FOR CHOCOLATE STUFFING
- Put the first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Beat with a wire whisk until chocolate mixture is creamy and cooled. Add chopped nuts, if desired.
- DIRECTIONS FOR CHEESECAKE STUFFING
- In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese, milk or cream, almond extract, and powdered sugar together until consistency is smooth. Fill an icing cone or small plastic zippered bag (cut about ¼ inch off one corner of the bag) with a mixture.
- TO STUFF BERRIES
- Carefully core out fresh, firm berries. Create a hollow space of about ½ to ¾ inch, depending on the size of the berries. Cut a small piece off the berry tip, so the berries can stand on their own. Pipe stuffing into berries, and arrange nicely on a serving plate or tray.
