Hello CGH readers! It’s Malinda from Countryside Cravings bringing you these festive Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Cups that are perfect for the 4th of July.
What’s better than a rich, creamy cheesecake? A rich and creamy no bake cheesecake served in individual cups!
Don’t get me wrong I like a good cheesecake too, but sometimes it’s just too much work. These require no springform pan, no water bath, no leaving the oven door cracked for an hour, no impatiently waiting to taste that creamy cheesecake because these are no bake and can be made in about 15 minutes!! Wooohooo!
My kids absolutely loved these treats and so did my husband making this dessert perfect for all ages. The cheesecake filling is light, fluffy and not too sweet. If you like a really sweet dessert you may want to add in a little more sugar. Just taste as you go. 🙂
Plus, they are portioned into individual cups making them perfect for barbecues and picnics this 4th of July or any summer get together! Enjoy!
