Fresh Strawberries

Here in Wisconsin strawberry picking season hasn’t yet begun, so we opted for store bought fresh strawberries. On sale for a ridiculously low price of .88¢ quart, (here’s how to make the cent sign: alt 0162) it was a no brainer. To give store bought strawberries an extra boast, I like to remove the strawberries from their container, look them over, set them on paper towels on the window sill and let them hang out in the sun for a day or two.

Serve with Hot Fudge Sauce

For an extra special added treat, serve these strawberry cream cheese filled strawberries with your favorite jarred hot fudge sauce, warmed. You can drizzle the filled strawberries with the warmed hot fudge sauce or simply serve the warmed hot fudge sauce on “the side” for dipping.  Don’t like hot fudge?!? No problem, serve these special stuffed fresh strawberries with extra marshmallow fluff for dipping.

Our Favorite Hot Fudge Sauce

Our favorite brand of hot fudge sauce is from a company called Herrell’s. Herrell’s won first place in a national taste test by Serious Eats.  With hot fudge flavors like almond, coconut, chipotle, orange and peppermint, I can see why! I don’t splurge on hot fudge sauce often, but when I do, I’m a firm believer in spending the extra few dollars and buying the best. Herrell’s has that real, home-made, old-fashioned flavor I want in a hot fudge sauce.
