I'm embarrassed! I made these, and my son only got two...I ate 16 of them in one sitting as a meal! Going to make them again for Mom's day. I'll have to staple my lips shut on the drive to my mom's or she'll only get flowers! Thanks for the best and easiest recipe ever!
I first made these for Valentine's day for DH and I. I made with crushed almonds on top the first time. The second time I made them I dipped them in crushed cashews and drizzled them in chocolate across the berries and let it harden. The third time I used graham cracker crumbs on top and drizzled in chocolate. I loved them all, but my favs are the crushed almonds. DH loved them ALL and couldn't choose which one was his favorite! This is a great dessert to bring to a pot luck or party, as they are the first things to go! Believe me everyone loves them!
I used this recipe as a general idea for proportions, so I'm not giving stars. I only had about 15 berries, no nuts. And I left the vanilla out and used a cocoa/powdered sugar mixture to stir into the cream cheese. I also drizzled (well, glopped) some chocolate on the berries. (I loved the chocolate on these. Wasn't so crazy about the berry without the chocolate.)
I wanted to try these and make up a small batch. These are awesome! I used chopped almonds on mine for the topping and then drizzled chocolate over them. They look so pretty, that I am going to make up a big batch and bring them to our family dinner for Easter! This is an awesome dessert idea, that is light and tasty and so pretty plated up!
Delicious! I followed directions exactly, except used the suggested variation of graham cracker crumbs instead of the almonds for dipping the tops. This was a special treat for my family - "How many can I have?" asked my daughter. :)
If you are double guessing to make this DONT!!!! This is so amazing there are no words...i dont think i will ever be able to get away from a party without being asked to bring this with me. i double the recipe and poof all gone and no time. thats allot of starwberry for like only 10 people
I made these last night, and it was an instant hit. I am a "non baker", and this a perfect solution for me. Easy enough for everyday, but elegant enough for a dinner party. Thank you.
Made these for a snack for DS and I whlle we watched television. They were excellent and we both had more than our share! I made half the recipe and there was lots left over to have again! I gave a few to my neighbor and she called me to say they were totally delicious!
