I can’t remember when I first tried cheesecake but when I did I fell in love. All the recipes I ever seen called for putting it in the oven and baking it. To me that was just way to long to wait. I needed something fairly quick and easy, then I found one similar to the one below and began making my own creations.
My favorite to make is No Bake Chocolate Cheese Cake
2 pkg’s cream cheese – softened
1/2 tub of cool whip (sometimes I add a little extra)
1/2 c Sugar
graham crumbs or chocolate crumbs (you can also use ready made graham crusts)
1/2 c chocolate chips (melted)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
In a bowl mix together cream cheese, sugar until smooth. Add in cocoa and whip cream until blended and then add melted chocolate chips and stir
In a round cake pan prepare cookie crumbs according to pkg. Spread cream cheese mixture over cookie crumbs, sprinkle some crumbs lightly over top and chill for at least 2 hours. ( we don’t wait that long) Top with Whip Cream and serve.
Using the first four ingredients you can create any easy no bake cheese cake you want. The choices are endless.
add mini marshmallows and nuts
fresh fruit or pie filling as a toppers
crushed candy of your choice for flavouring
What kind of cheesecake would you create?
