Ingredients

Instructions

Make the strawberry cheesecake filling:

To a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, add the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. Mix on low until mostly combined. Stop and scrape the mixer, then add the strawberry puree, cream of coconut, and the vanilla extract. Whip on high speed until light and fluffy, about 30 seconds. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer or a hand whisk to make this situation come together. Pour the filling into a piping bag fitted with a star or round tip and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. If you don’t have a piping bag a Ziploc bag works here too. If you have neither, you can spoon it into the chocolate cups. Don’t make your life harder than it is. It’s just dessert, homies.

Make the chocolate cups:

Set aside 8 silicone cupcake liners. Place chocolate in a small bowl. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted. Remove from heat. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of melted chocolate inside each silicone cup and swirl it around to coat the cups completely. Place the cups in the freezer on top of a flat surface and let it chill for about 15 minutes. Once completely chilled, gently remove the chilled chocolate from the silicone cups and set aside to fill.

To assemble:

Sprinkle or spoon a bit of sweetened flaked coconut inside each chocolate cup and then pipe or spoon strawberry cheesecake on top of the sweetened flaked coconut. Pile that situation high. Top with strawberry slices and chill until ready to eat.
