Oh my…do I have a treat for you! Cotton Candy No Bake Mini Cheesecakes…yes please!
I’m super excited to be sharing my recipe for the Bring Out The Silver Program for PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese! The Bring Out The Silver Program is a virtual recipe swap with some amazingly talented bloggers.
This Mini Cheesecake recipe started with the Fluffy 2-step Cheesecake recipe, but for the holidays it’s always fun to make dessert a little extra special. The flavor options are endless…lemon, strawberry, raspberry, lime and the list goes on and on! After mixing the 3 ingredients…PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, sugar and COOL WHIP, I just had to add a little flavor, so I hunted through the cupboards and came across the Tutti-Frutti flavoring.
PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese has been making the America’s favorite cream cheese since 1872, largely due to its high standards and commitment to develop a delicious, quality product made with fresh milk and real cream.
Let’s get started…
First, be sure to set out the PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese at least 10 minutes before using, room temperature is best. In a large mixer, cream the PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and sugar, then add the COOL WHIP. Next comes the graham cracker crust. You can use any size liners you like, or even a store bought crust. These are mini dessert cups.
Crush the graham crackers finely and pour in melted butter, mix to combine.
Then spoon graham cracker mixture into each liner and press down gently with the back of the spoon. The amount will depend on the size of the liner, usually between 1 – 2 tablespoons each.
Spoon in the Cheesecake filling
Smooth with the back of the spoon. Place in fridge to set about 3 hours.
Just before serving, top with Cotton Candy or your favorite candy. Jelly Beans are perfect for an Easter Dessert. To create a rich, luscious cheesecake for your next gathering (or family dessert!), PHILADELPHIA sets the standard. That’s why I always “Bring Out the Silver” when I’m making cheesecake.
What makes PHILADLPHIA so delicious? It’s their four fundamental standards:
- Fresh Local Milk and Real Wholesome Cream: PHILADELPHIA uses milk sourced from dairy farmers local to where the cream cheese is made, and combines it with real, wholesome cream to create a deliciously fresh tasting cream cheese
- From Farm to Our Fridge in Just Six Days: Fresh milk from nearby farms is made into cream cheese and refrigerated at PHILADELPHIA creameries in Beaver Dam, Wis. and Lowville, NY in just six days
- Limited use of preservatives: No preservatives are found in the cream cheese brick varieties
- Real Ingredients: From crisp jalapeños in its most recent variety, Spicy Jalapeño (just launched on March 4), to crunchy pecans in its Honey Nut variety, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese provides a delicious, fresh taste with each flavor
