Strawberries, Yes Please!


Strawberries are a classic. Our Strawberry Cheesecake mix is a great way to get your strawberry fix, even when strawberries are not in season.


Strawberry Icebox Cake

Our Strawberry Icebox Cake is a remake of a classic recipe. When refrigerated for a couple of hours, all the layers meld together to make a delicious cake-like concoction with no baking. Simply alternate graham crackers, strawberries, and Halladay’s Harvest Barn Strawberry Cheesecake mix in layers to create this signature dessert.

• 1 package Halladay's Strawberry Cheesecake

• 1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip or 8 oz. whipped cream

• 2 sleeves graham crackers

• 2 lbs. strawberries, sliced and added to 1 Tbsp. sugar

Fold Cool Whip into cheesecake mix. Add thin layer of whipped cream mixture to bottom of a baking dish. Layer ingredients, first graham crackers, then Cool Whip, followed by strawberries. Continue to layer until ingredients are gone. Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving. Cake will keep for two days in the refrigerator.


Strawberry ParfaitsStrawberry Parfaits are a light and delicious dessert that are great for brunch or after a heavy dinner. Alternate your glass size to make mini or full-sized treats.

• 1 package Halladay's Strawberry Cheesecake

• 1 (8 oz.) bar cream cheese, softened

• 1 (8 oz.) Cool Whip or 8 oz. whipped cream

Combine cream cheese and cheesecake mix; fold in Cool Whip. Layer cheesecake mixture with fresh strawberries and top with whipped cream.


Cheesecake Dipped StrawberriesStrawberry Cheesecake Dip is a fun party dip that is great for nibbling. This tasty dessert features a fresh strawberry that is dipped in our prepared cheesecake mixture, then dipped in graham cracker crumbs to get the full cheesecake experience in a single bite! Try this recipe with our classic Strawberry Cheesecake, or mix it up with some other favorites such as Double Chocolate, Sea Salted Caramel, or Lemon Raspberry.

• 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
