Easiest No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake, the Sweetest Thing for your Sweathearts!
This cheesecake is very pretty and very easy/quick to make. I see a theme here with my recipes...easy, quick busy day, busy life recipes! The little cheesecakes are quite dressy in fancy cupcake liners, so pretty for a party or a romantic Valentine dinner for two! This is a great recipe to keep on hand in the pantry, it's delicious even without the strawberry and jam topping. The red berries do dress it up a lot, so pretty! I also love raspberries with this, but they were not good at the market this week.
1-Jello No Bake Cheesecake mix
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1-8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
-strawberries, raspberries, kiwi...any sweet fruit that works well with cheesecake.
Prepare the cheesecake mix crumbs according to package directions and distribute in 12 cupcake liners, or one deep dish pie plate.
Place the room temperature cream cheese in a mixing bowl and add just a little milk. Mix with mixer on high until the cream cheese is very smooth with no lumps. Add the remaining milk and cheesecake mix from package. Mix until smooth, no lumps.
Fill cupcake liners with cheesecake mix. Do not overflow the cupcake liners. Work kind of fast here, the mix starts to set up quickly.
Add strawberry garnish.
Heat a small amount of strawberry jam in the microwave. Poor just a little on each cheesecake...too much will overpower the other flavors.
Serve and enjoy!
Thank you so much for visiting! I'd love to keep in touch.
