First start out by washing your strawberries. Cut the tops off and scoop out the middle with a small spoon.
Place the strawberries scooped side up in the egg carton to hold them up. Fill each one with the milk chocolate. Finish off with a spray of Cool Whip on each one. Serve and enjoy.

Never had those, but I found several recipes for that on recipezaar.com

As I recall from seeing a show on Eminger berries, they took LARGE berries and cut out a triangle shape at the bottom. The bigger berries get the more open the inside of the berry becomes, taking out the triangle shape will open up the inside. They made a cheese cake in a large pan, then scooped the cheesecake crust and all and rolled into balls and SHOVED into berries, the filling came out beyond the berries, they then kinda mushed it into a berry shape, rolled in more crumbs or chocolate.
HOpe that helps.
Her berries aren't all that special actually. I'm from Maine and through the grapevine I have been told that she just buys Sarah Lee frozen cheesecakes, lets them thaw in big plastic tubs, then scoops the mashed up cheesecake out, and stuffs it into the cut slit in the berry. After that, she does as previously mentioned--shapes and rolls it in crumbs. She must chill it after this to re-harden the cheesecake so it doesn't get goopey when dipped. And proceeds to dip it in chocolate.
Hey, but don't try to make and sell these on your own--that simple little cut, stuff, and dip is pattened!
Since Emenger's Berries closed, I've been looking for that recipe too. Here is a link for their original recipe
