I Tried the Deviled Strawberry Recipe That Everyone Loves and It’s a Deliciously Sweet Summer Treat
I’ve enjoyed my fair share of sneaking deviled eggs out the fridge before they’re chilled and ready to eat. To me, deviled eggs were a delicacy that I just couldn’t get enough of. Similar to my obsession with deviled eggs, however, is my love for fresh strawberries. Like everyone I know and love, strawberries just have a way of turning a bad day, good. That’s why I was so intrigued when I came across this viral recipe for deviled strawberries. A combination of two of my favorite foods? Why would I not give it a try?
I quickly rushed to the store, gathered my ingredients, and began to recreate them in my kitchen.
How to Make Deviled Strawberries
Recreating this dish is a breeze, considering it only takes five ingredients to make this recipe come to life. You’ll need large fresh strawberries, washed with stems removed, dried, and sliced in half. Next, scoop out a little bit of the inside of each of the strawberry halves.
To create the filling, place cream cheese into a mixing bowl combined with confectioners’ sugar. Add almond extract and melted chocolate, then begin the mixing process, using a hand mixer and blending until smooth. Pipe the chocolate cream cheese filling into each strawberry and garnish with sprinkles.
My Honest Review of Deviled Strawberries
I truly loved this recipe. It brought back those nostalgic memories of eating strawberries on the front porch with my grandmother during the hot summers in the country! If I had to change one thing about this recipe though, it would be to remove the chocolate. I’m not a big fan of eating chocolate unless it’s covering something like a doughnut, cupcake, or even a yellow cake.
Overall, though, I would definitely make this again — sans chocolate — because it’s a quick and easy snack that you can prep for a full week.
3 Tips for Making for Making Deviled Strawberries
- Use a piping bag and/or tip. Using a piping bag when icing your strawberries will make sure that things don’t get really messy.
- Garnish as you please. The video use chocolate sprinkles, but I chose blue sprinkles to make it pop.
- Chill the finished product. Although the video doesn’t say you should chill your finished strawberries, I do suggest placing them in fridge for 15 minutes to chill before eating.
