Cheesecake-stuffed Strawberries

I first saw these awesome little desserts on the Food Network a while ago. Strawberries are in season right now, and I found some really nice looking ones at the local Farmer's Market, so I thought to try to replicate them and got the idea from Tiny Tyrant's Kitchen. These were super easy to make and delicious. This is not one to pass up. You can use prepared cheesecake, but I made some from the Jell-O no bake Cheesecake mix because it was easier to stuff in the berries.

1 lb. fresh strawberries
prepared cheesecake or Jell-O no bake Cheesecake mix
crushed Graham Crackers

1) Remove stem of strawberries and hollow out the berry from the top to its center (I used a melon baller). Set aside.

2) If using prepared cheesecake, scoop out cheesecake filling and stuff in the berries.
If using the Jell-O mix, prepare the filling according to the package. Once the filling has thickened, place filling in a piping bag or ziploc bag with the tip cut out. Pipe into the berries.

3) Roll the top of the berries with the filling on the crushed graham crackers and place on a platter. Chill for 1-2 hours to harden the filling.
