Chocolate strawberry fantasies

Yield: 6 To 8 serv.

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Strawberries
8 ounces Cream cheese
⅓ cup Granulated sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2 ounces Bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
2 tablespoons Orange liqueur
1 teaspoon Finely grated orange rind
1 teaspoon Finely chopped pistachios
Tiny mint sprigs (optional)

Starting at tips of strawberries, make 2 crosswise slits almost to stem ends, without cutting through. Set aside.

In bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla; beat in cooled chocolate, orange liqueur and rind.

Using piping bag, pipe cheese mixture into slits in berries. Sprinkle with pistachios; garnish with mint (if using). Refrigerate until chilled. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Typed in MMFormat by cjhartlin@... Source: Canadian Living's Family Cookbook
