These individual no-bake cheesecakes are beyond awesome! The sweet vanilla cheesecake is smooth, creamy and delicious as it sits on a buttery graham cracker crust. But wait….there is a surprise in the center of the cheesecake! A fresh, chocolate covered strawberry! Keep this little surprise a secret when serving and watch as your guests dive into their own personal cheesecake. They will be delighted and scarf up every crumb.
Everyone gets their own little cheesecake with this dessert. Since it is a no-bake cheesecake, it is the perfect dessert for summer when you don’t want to heat up the oven.
Even the crust does not go into the oven. The graham cracker crumbs are coated with butter and formed into sweet crusts that hold together as the butter hardens in the fridge.
No-bake cheesecake with gelatin
This is a no-bake cheesecake with gelatin and whipping cream added to the cream cheese. The gelatin gives the cheesecake structure and stability while the whipping cream and cream cheese keep it creamy, rich and smooth.
It is incredibly easy to make and the perfect consistency for hiding a chocolate-covered strawberry in the center.
1 lb of strawberries
4oz cream cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
Graham cracker crumbs
Cut off the tops of the strawberries and hollow out the inside with a paring knife.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer.
Fill each strawberry with the cheesecake filling using a spoon, knife, or a piping bag.
Dip the strawberry in chocolate and top them with graham cracker crumbs.
