"This is a great dessert item! These strawberry sparkles are sweet and delicious! Try them anytime you get a sweet tooth! They also add fantastic color to your table. Try making red, white, and blue sugar color for a great Fourth of July look. Great at picnics also!"

cream cheese, softened

Good recipe. The cream cheese gave it an interesting flavor. Nice and sweet, but make sure that you'll eat all the strawberries once you've made them. I put a few in the fridge after, and it became mushy and the red sprinkles began to run onto the plate.
They tasted pretty good, but didn't look very pretty. First of all I had to spread the cream cheese mixture with a knife because it wouldn't stick to the strawberry if I just dipped it. Second, the sugar started melting and running right from the start. It looks a lot better and runs much less if you use colored sugar bought from the store, as they are bigger crystals. Also, make sure the strawberries are completely dry.
These were sweet and a great treat for the summer! Use less sugar if it becomes too sweet....!
LOVE this recipe! I didn't even make it right. Somehow missed the part about refrigerating the cream cheese mixture before dipping in the colored sugar. Instead, I mixed everything together (including the food coloring and granulated sugar and the cream cheese). But my guests said it was better than strawberries dipped in chocolate! A 100% winner - you can't mess it up :)
Read the recipe incorrectly and ended up adding all the ingredients at once! We ended up just dipping the strawberries in the cream cheese. Delicious! :)
Honestly, how can this recipe possibly go wrong? :-) Delicious.
As I was just making these as a quick snack for myself, I didn't bother with the food coloring part. I loved the contrast of the cream cheese mixture with the strawberries. I'll be making these again. Thanks, Serrah!
These are scrumpdiddlyumptious! Unbelieveably good. The dip tasted liked the vanilla fruit dip served at Jason's Deli. I used neufchatel cheese. Fabulous recipe and I will be using this one a lot. So many Thanks, this is awesome!
