Strawberry Cheesecake Bites


Happy Valentine's Week!!  
This week will be dedicated to dishes and treats that celebrate Valentine's Day.  Valentine's Day is a day we mark on the calendar to give our loved ones some extra special love and attention.  I had to start the week off  with this fun, quick and easy Strawberry Cheesecake Bites.  It only requires a handful of ingredients and a little time.  You can even get the kids involved in helping you on this one.   My kids LOVE strawberries and I think they make the perfect Valentine's Day fruit since they are red and shaped like a heart.  Share these little beauties with the ones you love and you will be sure to make them happy.

Strawberries (as needed)
1 soften brick cream cheese (8oz)
1/3 cup up to 1/2 cup sugar ( to taste)
crushed graham crackers (as needed)

 Crush some graham crackers.  Reserve until later. Whip together the cream cheese and sugar until it's forms a creamy sweet cheesecake filling.

Wash strawberries.  Trim the tip of the strawberry so it can stand up.  Take a small knife and create a hole by coring the strawberry. (This step is best done by an adult if kids are helping since you will have to carefully use a knife)

Next place cheesecake filling into a pipping bag with a tip and fill the strawberry holes.  Top with some crushed graham cracker crumbs.  Serve immediately or chill and serve. Enjoy.
