How to make the TikTok Deviled Strawberries recipe for a sweet twist

Dessert TikTok is hungry for the viral Deviled Strawberries recipe, and we don’t blame them. This no-bake summertime treat has a base of fresh strawberries and a creamy icing topping that bursts with sweetness and summery goodness in your mouth. Plus, making Deviled Strawberries can be as easy as you want, with three variations of chocolate, buttercream, or tinted cream cheese frosting toppings quickly. Here’s how to make Deviled Strawberries from TikTok for a quick dessert that will satisfy all your sweet cravings.

Just like with the salty deviled eggs, there are also tons of different ways to customize your deviled strawberry platter. It’s finally strawberry peak season, where the berries are bright, juicy and just about perfect from May through fall. The explosive flavor is so sweet and tart, and practically begs for a creamy icing to top it off. Whether you add color to white icing, sprinkles, or toppings like whipped cream or a drizzle of chocolate, the result is a sweet treat that promises to look as good as it tastes. You can dress bright red strawberries with blue frosting for a sweet 4th of July popper, or fold in decadent melted chocolate for a delicious nighttime bite.

TikToker @cookiterica says her Deviled Strawberries taste “like a Wendy’s frosting, but inside a strawberry.” After posting the first cream cheese and chocolate recipe, viewers in her comments kept begging her to find other ways to make them, and luckily for us, she delivered. Here’s how to make Deviled Strawberries with three different recipes.

How to Make Chocolate Stuffed Strawberries

First, you’ll need fresh strawberries to stuff with one of three sweet and creamy fillings. You can never go wrong with a strawberry and chocolate combo — it’s a classic for a reason, and as one TikTok commenter said, Deviled Strawberries are “like chocolate covered strawberries at level 5000!” This variation of Deviled Strawberries is perfect for a date, Valentine’s Day, or a girls’ night out.

Here’s what you’ll need for the chocolate cream cheese filling:

  • 4 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipped cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate of your choice, melted

Directions:

  1. Wash and dry the strawberries, then cut off the tops and cut them in the middle.
  2. Take some of the inside and keep it for another recipe.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the cream cheese and heavy whipping cream, gradually incorporating the powdered sugar until smooth.
  4. Melt the hard chocolate of your choice in the microwave, then stir into the filling.
  5. Pipe, scoop or spread the filling into the holes in the strawberries, garnish with sprinkles or chocolate chips and enjoy.

How to Make Deviled Strawberries with Buttercream Topping

Don’t like cream cheese frosting or prefer a light colored topping? Opt for this velvety buttercream instead. You can also use this frosting on other desserts, like cupcakes and cookies, but it’s sure to elevate your fresh-cut strawberries into a delicious dessert the next time you throw a party.

Here’s what you’ll need for the buttercream filling:

  • Two sticks (16 tablespoons) softened butter
  • 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons heavy whipped cream
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Wash and dry the strawberries, then cut off the tops and cut them in half
  2. Take some of the inside and keep it for another recipe.
  3. Whip it softened butter, then gradually add the powdered sugar with the heavy whipped cream and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Pipe, scoop or spread the filling into the holes in the strawberries, garnish with sprinkles or chocolate chips and enjoy.

How to make stuffed strawberries with colorful filling

If you don’t have enough time before your appointment to fill in from scratch, don’t worry. You can use any store-bought product frosting to fill your Deviled Strawberries and it doesn’t take long to mix in a splash of color. This way you can color your icing to match your party theme and top it with sprinkles or chocolate chips.

Here’s what you’ll need for the easy, colorful frosting:

  • 1 store-bought box cream cheese frosting (about 16 oz)
  • A few drops of food coloring of your choice

Directions:

  1. Wash and dry the strawberries, cut off the top and cut them in the middle.
  2. Take some of the inside and keep it for another recipe.
  3. Dump the cream cheese frosting into a bowl.
  4. Add three to four drops of the food coloring of your choice and mix until the color is homogeneous.
  5. Poach, scoop or spread the filling in the holes of the strawberries, garnish with sprinkles or chocolate chips and enjoy!

The best thing about Deviled Strawberries is how easy it is to play around with the basic recipe to customize and personalize it any time of the year. Most of the comments under @cookiterica’s videos rave about these recipes, saying they were easy to make and popular with loved ones. Other reviews recommend their own twist on the dish, such as stuffing the strawberries with cheesecake and drizzling chocolate over them or even filling the strawberry with boozy pudding shots. One comment even suggested adding a little instant coffee or cayenne pepper to the chocolate for an unexpected kick. Whichever variant of TikTok you decide to go with, there’s one comment that sums it all up perfectly: “No bro, these aren’t evil strawberries, these are God’s strawberries.”

Whether you’re feeling devilish or divine, pack these to-go Deviled Strawberries for a shareable summer treat you can take to the beach, brunch, barbecue, and bonfire.
