Chocolate Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Step 01

Wash strawberries well and let them dry.
Step 02
Cut the tops off the strawberries and use a small spoon to hollow them out.
Step 03
Melt the chocolate chips on medium heat for about 20 seconds, then turn up the heat every 15 seconds until the chocolate is melted.
Step 04
Flatten the bottom of each strawberry by slicing off a thin piece. When the strawberries can stand upright, pat them dry with a paper towel. Dip the bottom of each strawberry into chocolate and then into the cookie crumbs. Place on a pan lined with parchment paper.
