Ingredients

  • ½  Cup  light whipped cream cheese
  • 2  Teaspoons  strawberry preserves
  • 4  Cups  large strawberries (about 24)
  • 48  mini chocolate chips
  • ¼  Cup  pineapple shapes
  • 12  blueberries
  • 12  raspberries
  • 12  blackberries
  • small banana, sliced

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk the cream cheese and preserves until combined.

Place the cream cheese mixture in a small plastic bag and snip off one corner to create a piping bag.

Slice ½ an inch off of the top of the strawberry (or leave the top for the “hair” and cut a small piece off the narrow part of the strawberry to make a flat bottom). Repeat for the remaining strawberries. Fill each strawberry with a small amount of the cream cheese mixture.

Place chocolate chips in the cream cheese mixture for eyes.

Skewer toothpicks with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or shapes cut out of banana or pineapple and stick on top for “antennae” or “hats.”

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
