These delectable berries are so simple to throw together, yet make a very elegant and beautiful presentation for your bridal shower or Summer party. The rich and creamy mascarpone cheese is slightly sweetened and pairs beautifully with the berries for a healthier, sweet treat. The dark chocolate drizzle and the crunch of the hazelnuts add the special touch that makes them simply irresistible!

Mascarpone-Stuffed Strawberries With Hazelnut Dark Chocolate

Ingredients:
2 pints fresh strawberries, rinsed and patted dry 
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup powdered sugar 
1/2 cup good quality dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup finely chopped toasted hazelnuts

Directions:
Core strawberries with a small serrated spoon or knife and set aside.

Combine mascarpone cheese, whipping cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix on high with a whisk attachment until cream starts to thicken and stick to the sides of the bowl. The cream should stick to the back of a spoon when done. Place cream into a large ziploc bag (or pastry bag) and cut a small opening in the corner with a pair of scissors. Pipe cream mixture into the center of each strawberry and set aside (I like to use a star tip on my pastry bag for this, but it's not required).

Now it's time to melt the chocolate. You can do this two ways: in the microwave or in a double boiler. If using the microwave, place into a microwave safe glass/pyrex dish and cook on high in 30-second increments, stopping to stir each time until chocolate is smooth and completely melted (about one minute). If using a double boiler, place chocolate chips in the top of the double boiler and cook on medium-high until chocolate is smooth and completely melted. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

Sprinkle hazelnuts on top of stuffed berries (if using) and drizzle chocolate on top with a small spoon. Refrigerate berries until ready to serve.

Makes about 24 strawberries.
