Owl Strawberries with Philadelphia Cream Cheese Ingredients
For this recipe, you will need Philadelphia Cream Cheese (in strawberry or blueberry flavor), brown sugar, Starburst minis, large Wilton candy eyes, Cocoa Krispies, coconut, mini marshmallows, and butter. You may also want to use candy melts (chocolate) or royal icing to adhere the eyes if you are prepping these a day before. You can pick up all of these items at Walmart. The candy eyes and candy melts are found in the cake decorating section of the store. I also chose the 1/3 less fat version of the cream cheese, which is another option for you. With this recipe, I made about 15 owl strawberries.
This is so different from most of the other strawberry desserts. Would love for you to share it on The yuck stops Here! recipe link up. I would also like to share it on my weekly wed. roundup with a link back.
So clever and absolutely cute!
Thank you so much. I am glad you like them. Thanks for commenting.

These are adorable!
Just love your little owls! they are so cute and would add a nice touch when having an owl theme party, my daughter teaches kdg and uses the owl theme–this would be a nice treat to share with her classs…thanks for the idea!
Thanks so much. I’m so glad you are going to use this idea. Let me know how it goes!
I am not a coconust fan. Is there something else I could use instead of coconut to get the same effect for the nests

You could probably just make rice krispy treat nests. Something else that comes to mind is All Bran cereal. I’m not sure it will work, but I’d give it a go. Actually, I just searched and found this recipe using chow mien noodles: http://www.food.com/recipe/bird-nests-280662. Let me know what you find works for you.
Thank you so much for your recipe and photos. I created this today for my niece’s birthday party. They are so cute people didn’t want to eat them. Please note: They are delicious!!!
THANKS again 🙂
Here is a picture of how they turned out.
So fun! Thank you so much for sharing your picture with me. I’m so glad everyone enjoyed them. Great work!
Wow, Very creative. Love it that they are fitting for any season and many occasions & Look simple to make.
Will try soon!
Thanks so much. We had a lot of fun making and serving these. I appreciate you taking the time to comment.
I love this fun treat! I showed my daughters and they want me to go to the store to get strawberries today! I liked it so much that I shared it on my latest blog posts about owls. You can see it here: http://homecraftsbyali.blogspot.com/2015/05/owls-owls-everywhere.html
Thanks so much for including me in your round up. I just pinned it. Your kids would love these! 🙂 Have fun with it.
I want to make these for my daughter’s birthday party. I can’t tell from the picture though…Did you use a regular sized cupcake pan, or a mini cupcake pan to set the nests in? Thank you for sharing such a cute idea!
Good question. They were actually made in regular sized cupcake pans. I hope that helps. 🙂 Have fun with it.
Very pretty I love all of the ingredients. So I can emagine how great they taste
They’re pretty yummy. Thanks so much! Enjoy!
Hi will it be too sweet if we use brown sugar to stop the cream cheese from ozing out?
is there other suggestion?
I didn’t find it too sweet. I’m trying to think of what else you could try. Coconut maybe. I’m kind of questioning if you would need it at all or if you could just eliminate it. You could also try some chopped nuts. Let me know what your solution is.
