6 oz. vanilla flavored candy coating, melted
6 oz. chocolate flavored candy coating, melted
2 (15 count) boxes Athens Mini Fillo Shells, thawed
1 1/4 cups finely chopped lightly toasted pecans
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup marshmallow creme
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
8 fresh chilled strawberries, quartered
Place melted candy coatings in separate small deep bowls. Gently dip bottom half of 15 shells in vanilla coating and the other 15 in chocolate coating, shaking excess back into bowl. Place on wax-paper lined cookie sheet and refrigerate until hardened. Gently dip rims of the shells into the opposite flavor of candy coating, shaking excess back into bowl. Dip rims gently into pecans. Return, rim side up, to wax paper to harden. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, marshmallow creme, and vanilla until smooth. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until serving time. Just before serving, place a rounded teaspoonful of cream cheese mixture into each shell. Top each with a strawberry quarter. Serve immediately. Makes 30.
Other fresh fruits such as blueberries or raspberries may be substituted for the strawberries.
