Easy Phyllo Cups with Fruit

These Easy Phyllo Fruit Cups take about 15 minute to make and they are so yummy! I could eat the cream cheese filling with a spoon! These are the perfect treat to take to a Valentine’s Day gathering of any kind! I am a big fan of Galentine’s Day, which I celebrate on the 13th with all my best gal pals! You can find the mini phyllo cups on the freezer aisle by the frozen whipped cream and frozen pie crusts. They are pre-baked, so all you have to do is pull them out of the package, fill them, and serve! It is mind-blowingly easy.

Tips for Baking and Storing Phyllo Cups

You can make these tasty treats ahead of time, just store them for a few days in the fridge in an air-tight container. If you want to make larger cups, you can buy phyllo sheets, cut them into the shape/size you want, and layer 5 sheets per cup. Brush a thin layer of butter and sprinkle a little bit of sugar between each sheet and then cook in muffin tins according to package directions. I happen to love the mini ones because then I don’t feel as bad eating 10 of them. I mean, it’s fruit, right?

Variations on Easy Phyllo Cups with Fruit

There are so many ways you can customize these little cups to be your own. Obviously you can put any kind of fruit on top! Bananas, kiwi, blueberries, apples, honestly any fruit! You could also add some peanut butter to the cream cheese filling and put bananas on top. You can also add some candied pecans or a chocolate drizzle. The possibilities really are endless.

Other Mini Desserts You’ll Love

There is something about a bite-sized dessert that is just so fun! They make great finger food treats for parties and for kids! The smaller the treat, the smaller the mess, right?? Try some of these tiny treats next time you need something sweet!

    I love theseas does my family. I am going to make them for Easter but instead of fruit I am mixing in pastel min m&ms and putting a jelly bean on top or a regular size m&m.

  2. These were a big hit with my friends who will normally decline “dessert” stating they are watching their sugar consumption. I also served a platter of fresh fruit (with the remainder of the fruit I bought for the top of the cups) with a chocolate “dipping sauce” (“Baker’s Dipping Sauce” that I found at the grocery store) and they loved that too!!

  3. Says can be made ahead of time….they don’t get soggy? I want to make night before for an office party.


    1. I apologize for answering this so late! Somehow we missed your comment. You have probably already made these, but the Phyllo dough won’t go soggy for a couple of days. If you are worried about it, make the filling ahead and fill the cups just before serving.

    2. I made my Phyllis cups myself and baked them, after they cooled I stuffed them with my cream cheese filling and a huge blackberrybut! The party up has been moved till tomorrow, how do I keep them from going soggy overnight, help

      1. Yikes, I would check them in the morning. They still might be ok. If not, you might have to re-do them. I don’t know how you would keep them from getting soggy after adding the filling. :/

          I made 100 of these at Easter. Put them in the ‘fridge the day before. Put the fruit on top just before serving. So easy and delicious. Not at all soggy. I put the fruit on later just in case is “leaked”.

        2. I am confused the comment directly above this comment you say they will keep without getting soggy for 2 days then this one you say she may have to re do them because they may be soggy overnight.

            Did these a day ahead and turned out great! Hint: melt some dark chocolate with a little butter and brush inside of the cups. Adds another flavor dimension and not soggy!

  4. I am going to make these the end of this month for a home gathering.
    OMG they are pretty to look at and I am sure delicious..PLUS so easy to make.
    Thanks for sharing.
