Cream Filled Chocolate Strawberries

Creamy Vanilla Pastry Filling- this recipe is a great base recipe. Keep this one in your recipe file, you'll need it again. 


2 cups heavy cream 
2 egg yolks   
½ cup white sugar 
½ cup milk 
pinch salt 
1 t vanilla extract 
1 T butter


Whisk together egg yolks, milk, and vanilla set aside. In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk together heavy cream, sugar, butter and salt. Continue stirring and bring to a boil. Immediately add egg mixture and stir constantly until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Using a long toothpick, poke a hole in the top of each strawberry through the green stem. With a circular motion create a larger hole inside of each strawberry. Fill a metal tipped pastry bag with filling. Using the metal tip, pipe cream into the hole. Dip filled strawberries in your favorite dipping chocolate and allow to set. 

Decorating Tip:

Get creative! Roll your unset dipped strawberries in mini chocolate chips, coconut, nuts, or dip again in a white dipping chocolate. If your toppings start "sliding" off your strawberry, let the chocolate set a little more before adding your extra toppings.
