    Chocolate Cream Cheese Strawberries

    I created this recipe when I needed something special for my friend
    Denise's last day at work. I went to the store and looked at ingredients
    and came up with this! I hope you all enjoy them as much as my family and
    friends do. They are easy to make and are usually gone within the first
    half hour of any get together.

    2 quarts strawberries, washed & hulled
    1 8oz brick cream cheese, softenned
    1 Tablespoon honey
    1 tsp. lemon juice
    1 tsp. vanilla
    dash cinnamon
    1/2 cup white chocolate melting wafers
    1/2 cup chocolate chips

    Cut strawberries in half (or quarters if large) and place cut side up on
    platter or cookie sheet. In medium bowl beat next five ingredients
    together. Scrape cream cheese mixture into a freezer bag (or use a pastry
    bag if you have it). Cut about 1/2 inch from one corner and squeeze the
    mixture to that corner. Pat cut surface of strawberry with a paper towel,
    then squeeze out about a teaspoon size dollop of cream cheese mixture onto
    the strawberries; set aside. Place chocolates into two separate freezer
    bags. Microwave the white chocolate in bag, leaving open, for 30 seconds.
    Squash chocolate in bag, return to microwave and repeat in ten second
    intervals until the chocolate is melted. (Be careful not to microwave too
    long or it will burn and be too hot to handle as well.) Cut 1/4 inch from
    a corner of bag then seal bag. Swirl the chocolate on each strawberry-you
    could very well have extra chocolate. Repeat,using the chocolate chips.
    Chill well.

    Just a note-it may go faster to drizzle the chocolates back and forth over
    the whole tray of strawberries-don't do it though! When you try to take a
    strawberry from a tray done this way you usually end up with the chocolate
    from several strawberries as well.
