Ladivacrj--loved your picture of the berries. Where did you find the square shaped paper to put them in?
I found them at one of my local cake supply stores. They were with the cupcake liners and candy cups.
Anyone going to see an oral surgeon or an orthdontist?
Those curved syringes look exactly like the one I was given after I had my wisdom teeth pulled a few years ago.
It might be worth checking out. If you ask, you might be able to get one for free!
Also ...if I may add my 2 cents in ....the chocolate that covers the giant ding dong cake in the recipe section adds a wonderful chocolate covering with out it breaking when you bite into it..and tastes lovely with the cream cheese filling
I found mine in the pharmacy section of a local supermarket. It's called a child's dosing syringe. Mine came with that long tip as a removable cap on the syringe nub. I just used the syringe though and it worked fine. My filling was from a recipe found on recipezaar.com.
4 ounces light cream cheese
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Hope this helps!!
For those of you looking for that kind of syringe....ask your dentist!! LOL, I got one of those after getting my wisdom teeth pulled, they told me to fill it with warm water and flush out the wound...yuck but that's what they said those type of syringes are for!! HTH!!
By the way......great idea!!!
It's a 12cc curved tip syringe. I sell them at work but they are in boxes of 50 so not a convenient thing to buy unless you're one of the veterinarians I sell to. They are typically the oral syringes you get at the dentist so pklundberg is probably right about getting one free if you ask nicely.
Looks like I'm gonna have to make a trip to the grocery store!! LOL- these sound (and look) delish!
Thanks to all these posts. I need to make a ton of these for a party next weekend and this looks like a much faster method! Off to see my pharmacist!
What a great idea! This one is a must-do the next time I host my book club.
Thanks for all the info. One more thing to add to my "to do" list.
That's a great idea. I'm wondering, though, what do you cover them with, just plain chocolate melts?
When I use good chocolate, it doesn't turn out this pretty and I don't like using chocolate melts. Should I add something to the chocolate to make it smooth, but dry hard?
Add a little crisco to your chocolate when you are melting it...that will make it creamier and smoother. I haven't tried stuffed strawberries yet but I got to soon.....my husband will love these!!!!
Thank you for sharing this.
DITTO OMG.....HOW YUMMY.... GOTTA TRY THANKS FOR SHARING!
Even though I am really new, I thought I would add my 2 cents worth to this great idea. I picked really beautiful strawberries, but they didn't have a cavity in the middle. I used the idea to cut a flap of the leaves ( don't cut the circle all the way off though). Then I used my skinny carrot pealer to cut a circle out of the center of the strawberry. I filled them with chocolate or cream cheese and replaced the leaf flap. If you used chocolate, it sealed the top back on as it set.
I love that idea! Brilliant!
I heard about your ingenious idea on another thread...what a smart cookie u are!
Can't wait to try it! I have tons of strawberries in my garden and lots of fillings to experiment with!
OOOh, yum. I have used a syringe to inject strawberries with champagne before dipping in chocolate but never thought of cream cheese or ganache! Thanks for sharing
YUM! Thank you for sharing
yeah, love the champagne idea too....in the good ol days we used to inject the strawberries with vodka....potent little suckers.....
