Cool Cantaloupe Phyllo Cups

Total Time: 40 MIN Makes: 30 desserts
Prep Time: 10 MIN Cook Time: 0 MIN

Perfectly ripe cantaloupe has never been this delicious! Pairing white wine, honey, and freshly minced mint all within a snackable phyllo cup makes this refreshing bite an easy go-to.

  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 60 small cantaloupe balls (1/2 inch diameter)
  • 2 packages (15 count, each) Athens® Phyllo Shells
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh mint


In a small bowl, mix white wine and honey. In a wide shallow bowl, place cantaloupe balls and pour the wine-honey mixture over it. Chill for 30 minutes in fridge (or overnight).

Place 1-2 cantaloupe balls in each phyllo shell and sprinkle evenly with mint. Serve immediately.

  • For added crispness, preheat oven to 350°F. Place empty shells on a baking sheet and bake for 3-5 minutes. Cool and fill.
  • You can substitute champagne for the white wine, or for a family-friendly treat, use sparkling white grape juice in place of the wine.
