Whether you’re a cheesecake lover or are just on the hunt for a no-fuss dessert idea to whip up for some guests coming over, cheesecake jars are the perfect solution to help you out. They’re incredibly easy to make, and taste absolutely heavenly. Ready to give them a try? Here are 5 recipes to get you started.
Strawberry Cheesecake Jar
A super simple and no-fail combination of strawberries and cheesecake is just what you need when you’re on the hunt for a quick dessert to whip up. Start by spreading out a layer of crushed sweet crackers or biscuits in the bottom of a little jar and then add a thick layer of blended cream and ricotta cheese (with some vanilla extract and powdered sugar) and then a layer of strawberry jam and some freshly chopped strawberries!
Birthday Cheesecake Jar
Forgot a birthday and have no time to go and grab a cake? This cheesecake jar recipe is here to your rescue. Making it is pretty easy too. For the crust, you can use ground up oreos, and for the cream cheese filling, you can throw in some rainbow sprinkles for a pop of colour. Easy peasy!
Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Jar
Tangy and fruity, just the perfect flavours to enjoy during the warm summer months, and that’s what you’ll enjoy in these lemon and blueberry cheesecake jars. To make this, you’ll need to add some lemon juice and lemon zest into the cream cheese while you’re processing it (with some sugar of course). You’ll also enjoy an extra element of crunch into the sweet cracker or biscuit crust if you add in some almonds while blitzing it. And finally, top the jar with a couple of heaped spoonfuls of blueberry jam or sauce!
Chocolate Cheesecake Jar
Got some oreos, cooking chocolate and a block of cream cheese? You’ve got everything you need to treat yourself to some insanely sinful, creamy and chocolatey deliciousness. Ground up the oreos (remove the cream from the center) with some butter and use it as the base in your cheesecake jar. Combine the cream cheese with a bit of vanilla extract, some sugar, melted cooking chocolate and some chocolate chips or sprinkles. Spread a generous layer into the jar and keep alternating layers if you like, or have it as a single layer!
Raspberry Cheesecake in a Jar
Got some raspberries waiting to be put to use? This recipe is an excellent one to try out! After layering the bottom of the jar with the crushed sweet crackers or biscuits, pile on a couple of heaped spoonfuls of a mixture of cream cheese combined with some honey, lemon zest and whole milk. Then layer some fresh raspberries on them, followed by another layer of cream cheese and then some raspberries once again.
