UPDATED: You can find the jars HERE! (Be sure to click on the lower price of $4.75 and not the $9 one!)
Cheesecake in a jar.
I have seen it a million times before, and have loved it each time.
So of course I wanted to try it myself!
I needed to find a recipe that was no bake but still tasted good.
And that would travel well.
And that I could modify to accommodate any toppings and flavors I wanted.
I brought these to a friends house... the gorgeous and brilliant foodie Miss Stephanie.
She is beautiful. And fun. And knows everyone and throws these fabulous blogging get togethers in Minnesota.
Now that I think of it, we are basically opposites.
This is chocolate with a Oreo cookie crust. With a pile of heath chips. Everything is better with a pile of heath chips, thats what I always say.
And by always I mean never.
I made seven different flavor combinations.
Chocolate Heath Cheesecake with Oreo cookie crust
Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo cookie crust
Cheesecake with Oreo cookie crust
It was easy and fun!
I modified this recipe from Pillsbury for the
1 package Cream Cheese
And slightly adapted this recipe from AllRecipes for the
No Bake Cheesecake
1 package cream cheese (8 oz)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 oz)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (can be modified to taste)
1 tsp clear vanilla extract
Filling of choice.
Same directions as above.
I made the graham cracker crust according to the directions on the box and bought the Oreo crust. I just spooned about 1/2 cup of filling into each jar then added the fruit filling of choice. Then refrigerated for a few hours.
Easy peasy! Hope you are having a great day and have an even better Mothers Day!
If you want to try a wonderfully fabulous awesome delicious scrumptious Cheesecake instead of the no bake version, I highly recommend THIS one.
