Deviled Strawberries

I absolutely love making deviled cheesecake strawberries. Sliced strawberries stuffed with my homemade recipe for cheesecake strawberry dip and sprinkled with a dusting of graham crackers are basically the perfect dessert.

No cook and easy to make last minute, this low stress dessert recipe also looks stunning on a dessert display tray.

Stuffed Strawberry Ingredients

The cheesecake dip that is stuffed in the strawberries is a version of our strawberry fruit dip recipe. The dip can also be served as a stand alone with a tray of fresh fruit if you have any left over – WIN/WIN!

  • 2-3 lbs. strawberries, washed and sliced in half
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow cream
  • 1 small package (3 oz) strawberry gelatin (dry powder only)
  • 1 small tub (8 oz) Cool Whip whipped topping, thawed
  • 1-2 graham crackers, finely crushed

Level Surface: I have learned after making tons of these, to keep the strawberries level by shaving off a bit from the bottom if needed. This makes piping the filling easier and keeps them stable on the tray. Otherwise the round ones can tip over on the side.

How to make Deviled Strawberries

Prepare the Strawberries: Begin by slicing your strawberries in half and placing them cut side up on a serving platter or flat surface. If any strawberries don’t lay flat, shave off a small part of the bottom to make them stable.

Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and marshmallow cream until smooth. Add the strawberry gelatin powder and whipped topping, and continue to beat until everything is well combined.

Fill the Strawberries: Spoon the strawberry cheesecake mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip (such as a 1M tip).

Pipe a generous dollop of the filling onto each strawberry half, then pipe a second dollop on top of the first for an attractive presentation.

Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle the filled strawberries with finely crushed graham crackers. I like to mix it up sometimes and also crush Oreo cookies as a topping. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to enjoy them.

If you want a recommendation to use any left over strawberries, my other favorite strawberry recipe is this strawberry poke cake recipe.

Tips for the Best Deviled Cheesecake Strawberries

  • Storage: Store the filled strawberries in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can keep for up to two days, but they’re best enjoyed fresh.
  • Birthday Party Favorite: These cheesecake strawberries are my go-to recipe for birthday parties. Kids and adults both love them! And while great for gatherings, if you are looking for a special dessert to serve a spouse (Mothers Day, Anniversary) this is a great choice too.
  • Try other toppings – As mentioned, you can crush cookies for toppings or drizzle Nutella, chocolate or caramel on top. While I haven’t tried it, I bet ice cream strawberry sauce would work well too.

Notes

I recommend prepping these right before you are ready to serve so you do not crush the beautiful pipped cheesecake. 
Another tip is if you want chocolate dipped strawberries, you can use hardening chocolate around the halved strawberries, then let set, then add the cheesecake stuffing so you get a chocolate covered strawberry stuffed with cheesecake. Yum!
