St. Nicholas Strawberries
Strawberry St. Nicholases made with cheesecake creme hold their shape and do not collapse like whipped cream or other softer mixtures. Use leftover filling as a delicious fruit dip.
Slice hulls off strawberries so they will stand up straight. Cut tops off to be the miters. Place a blob of cheesecake cream on bottom strawberry piece. Use a toothpic to draw cross on the “miter” piece. Put “miter” on top of the cream filling. When all strawberries are put together, use a toothpick to make chocolate syrup eyes. Chill until ready to serve.
1 7-ounce jar marshamallow creme
