A sweet, creamy filling make these luscious Mascarpone Filled Chocolate Covered Strawberries even more irresistible! My valentine ate his before dinner!

I’ve filled gorgeous ripe, Driscoll’s strawberries with sweetened cream cheese and with mascarpone cheese as well  as just dipping them in melted chocolate. But I had a plan to combine BOTH of these sweet treats.

Using a small, oblong melon baller, I scooped out the core of each berry leaving the leaves on top. Then I piped a mixture of mascarpone cheese and just a wee bit of sugar and a splash of vanilla into the small cavity and folded the green foliage over the opening. But I couldn’t stop there!

 Sweets for your Valentine

Even though it appears that I munch on cookies and slabs of decadent layer cakes each day, I’m a pretty healthy eater. I must admit, though, I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and just like Winnie-the-Pooh, I need a little something sweet after dinner. These stuffed and dipped strawberries were the perfect nibble. The hubby popped a couple in his mouth before dinner, but I held out and had mine for dessert. We were, obviously, both fans of these sweet gems. I think you and your Valentine will be, too!

  1. Such a delicate and delicious Valentine’s sweet treats! Happy Valentine’s Liz!

  2. One of my favorite goodies! I’ve made them with cream cheese, mascarpone would be a new food to me-perhaps one I should try:@)

  3. Sneaky sneaky! They look awesome!

  4. What a lovely treat for Valentine’s Day, especially that mascarpone. Yum!

  5. Look beautiful and delicious Lizzy!!!
    xoxo

  6. Chocolate covered strawberries are always a nice treat for us. Even with the chocolate they are lighter with the strawberries. I am going to ignore the mascarpone filling as being a non-healthy component. 🙂 I would probably sneak one before dinner too.

  7. Oh, they look so cute in their little striped sweaters!! Thanks for showing the photo of how you did the filling without removing the stem, it was nice to have a visual of that, having a photo is so much easier to picture it all. I think these would be a hit here…stealing this one. Don’t worry, I will give you credit! 🙂

  8. Dear LIzzy, I like something sweet after dinner too. These look beautiful and I am sure are delicious!!
    Have a wonderful weekend. xo Catherine

  9. I’ve stuffed mine with cheesecake before but never mascarpone. How easy are they and how beautiful to look at.

  10. What a lovely idea and not too sweet as well. And healthy! I love how you filled the strawberries with mascarpone – I’ve never thought to do that. And your chocolate swirls are very pretty – you must have a steady hand! I’ll pin these xx

  11. Oh I love the idea of a mascarpone filling, brilliant!

  13. Brilliant idea, Liz! I am completely inspired! Of course, I want to take it a step sweeter and add filled and dipped strawberries on top of cake! =)

  14. Sweet but not so rich and filling- a perfect dessert! Love it! 🙂

  16. Wow. All I can say is that I am not going to wait for next year’s valentine’s day for a batch of these! Great idea 🙂
