We're gonna teach you a trick that looks fancy but is incredibly easy to execute. Slice the stem ends off 6 large strawberries
, about 1/2 inch below the stems, revealing an opening in each berry. Use a narrow spoon to remove about half of the flesh inside each berry, allowing room for filling. Mix 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter
with 2 tbsp. water until thick and creamy. (If needed, add more water 1 tsp. at a time.) Spoon into the bottom corner of a plastic bag, snip off the tip to create a small hole, and pipe the PB through the hole and into the strawberries.
