Who doesn’t like peanut butter, strawberries and chocolate!
Almost everyone has enjoyed chocolate covered strawberries, BUT have you had peanut butter filled, chocolate dipped strawberries?
I first had these at little berries at a tea room in Plains, Georgia. We were at one of Magnolia and Ivy’s tea rooms having an Alice In Wonderland tea party and along with all the other delectable goodies, these strawberries were the hit of the dessert tray.
I’ve done chocolate covered strawberries for years. I have also filled them with a lemon curd filling (stand them up on their bottoms, no chocolate) and also filled them with a chocolate mousse and dipped the edges in coconut. All these are delicious, but the peanut butter filled ones are my favorite.
Try these for your next party, shower, lady’s luncheon or just because. I know you will enjoy them. You may want to let your guests know that they have peanut butter inside just in case anyone is allergic to peanut butter.
Pretty simple ingredients — peanut butter, chocolate and strawberries. My strawberries weren’t the freshest but I had them on hand and thought of this recipe and I’m sure they are going to still taste delicious.
Make two cuts and spread apart.
Pipe in some peanut butter.
Put on waxed paper and refrigerate for a few minutes to firm up.
Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
1 lb. strawberries, rinsed and dried
peanut butter, about 1/2 cup
8 oz. (or more) chocolate, melted (dark, semi sweet, or milk)
Take the rinsed and dried strawberries and using a small paring knife make a cut almost to the stem and then make another cut across that cut so you will be able to spread this open with your fingers. Put the peanut butter into a pastry bag and pipe in as much peanut butter as it takes to fill the inside without it squishing out the sides. After all the berries have been filled you are ready for dipping in the chocolate. Melt the chocolate in small microwavable bowl until smooth. Cool slightly. Dip the strawberries into the melted chocolate almost to the top. Set on waxed paper and pop in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set up.
Serve, and enjoy!
