 Strawberry Block Cream Cheese Spread

If you find yourself in a pinch for an appetizer, my Strawberry Block Cream Cheese Spread will save the day! It takes just 5 minutes, or less, to put together. Serve it on a beautiful tray, and a sturdy cracker, and you’re ready!

If you’ve ever had a No Bake Cherry (or Strawberry) Cheesecake this is similar in taste but much easier to make.

Can I use low-fat cream cheese?

You can use regular cream cheese, low-fat or fat-free are options if you like the taste of the lighter fat versions.

Can I use other flavors?

You can use strawberry, blueberry, or cherry pie filling. Trust me, this is my go-to dip and I’ve used all flavors and they have all been popular.

What crackers do you recommend?

I find Townhouse Pita Crackers Sea Salt are sturdy, lightly salted, and don’t have any weird flavors going on that will conflict with the dessert dip. For dessert dips, I also like to use graham crackers or shortbread cookies as dippers.

What do you serve it with?

I recommend serving with a pretty appetizer knife.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Yes! Just put it together and refrigerate. Add crackers and garnish, then serve.

What else can I use over cream cheese?

    Straight from the 1970’s! I like to cut the block of cheese into small cubes (use a knife rinsed in warm water after each cut). Leave the cubes in the original shape of the block. Then, for a more savory option, use green or red chili jelly over the top.
