Easy Strawberries and Cream Appetizer

This is an easy, 4-ingredient appetizer that you can throw together in your sleep. I mean, don’t, because then you’d get honey all over your pillow and that’s gross. But seriously guys. Easy, no-cook, barely-any-prep, plus there are strawberries involved…Easter appetizers never looked so good.

My brain is FRAZZLED lately you guys. Is anyone else feeling it? Maybe I’m allergic to spring. Most people get sneezy, but I’m over here leaving the fridge open for an HOUR and I haven’t even left the kitchen. All Charlotte says to me lately: “Mom, are you LISTENING??” No, sorry, what? “What are the soft things with feathers again?” Hens, dear. Then I return to the glazed-eyes.

Speaking of hens. Last night Eric asked me to drive him to where his bike was before it got dark, so he could ride it home. We hopped in the car and left. Then this minivan starts following us really close…then flashing us…so I pull over and we realize it’s my friend Alicia, with whom I had JUST had a text conversation in which I told her to come over.

Not like 2 texts. We are talking a 12 text conversation. I counted. (“You home?” “Yeah!” “I have something for you” “chicken eggs??” “maybe :)” etc. I literally sent the last text to Alicia, (“come over!”) then got up and drove away. What is wrong with me that I can’t remember to not leave my house for 5 minutes? All I ever do is not leave my house!! Thank you for the eggs from your dear hens, Alicia, and next time I promise I won’t flee the premises when you tell me you’re coming over.

Oh, sorry, you thought I was done talking about my brain fog? Think again. See these beautiful strawberries? On top of cheese? On a cracker? Drizzled with honey?

I independently came up with what is essentially the same appetizer idea a mere 1 year after posting it the first time. I thought of it, bought the ingredients, planned when I was going to make it, took 62 photos of it, ate them all, and only as I was finishing off the LAST ONE did I think to myself, “This sure would be good with blue cheese. Wait a minute…” HERE’S YOUR SIGN KAREN.

Honestly. I don’t know what my deal is. One thing I do know: you really can’t go wrong with some combination of cracker, cheese, fruit, and honey. It’s the perfect Easter appetizer (No cooking! No prep! No dishes!) or even just a perfect healthy snack for the afternoon munchies.

I piped on the cream cheese. Only do this if you’re the kind of person who complicates everything.

Since there are so many new Charlatans out there these days, I figured I may as well post the idea again since it’s such a favorite of mine, and I figured you could use some other ideas for Easter. Come back this time next year for my newest post: Honey-Drizzled Brie/Goat Cheese/Fresh Mozzarella Crackers with Strawberries. So original it will blow your mind.

Recipe by The Food Charlatan


  • Buttery crackers (I used Ritz, duh)
  • Cream cheese, softened
  • Strawberries, halved
  • honey, for drizzling


  1. Spread or pipe some cream cheese onto a cracker.
  2. Top with a strawberry half.
  3. Drizzle with honey and serve!


I think this would also be really good drizzled with a balsamic reduction! I'm trying that next. Tune in next year maybe I will even post it. :)

    I’m thinking maybe you need more wine in your diet. It will help you forget about the brain fog happenings…along with anything else you want to forget :) This recipe is totally different. It’s more like dessert. Love it!

      Alas my friend, the Mormon card strikes again!! :) I will have to self-medicate with copious amounts of chocolate and maybe some carbs for good measure. Surely that will rescue me from the glazed-eyed stare?

      Pretty soon people are going to start thinking I’ve been hitting up the wine box if I don’t get my act together, even though I don’t drink, lol! Thanks Jen, I agree, it’s hard to go wrong with strawberries and cream cheese!

    Ha, I totally skipped over your post on my Facebook feed because I was like, “Oh, I’ve seen that one before.” But then, I obviously got here anyway :)

    Haha Karen you are so cute and don’t worry you are not alone. My kids will actually ask me questions and I say yes. Then all of a sudden I ask my son, “Who said you could play Xbox?” He says, “you mom.” Oh I did? Oops. I am all over the place. My daughter keeps talking and talking and then when she tells my hubby about our convo earlier I have no idea we even talk about that. Hehe. So you are so not alone. These appetizer look delicious and a no brainer to throw together. Need to make these asap! Thanks friend! ;-)
