No Bake Layered Cheesecake Parfaits

Cheesecake Parfait Text

Like cheesecake? Hate to bake? Then this is a recipe you might like.  I made these recently and sent a pic to College Boy and I received a special request for them while we’re together .

  • 2 Pkg Cream Cheese
  • 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • Graham Crackers (I used Honey Maid and used one sleeve from the box)
  • Strawberries
  • Dark Chocolate (I used 3 regular sized Hershey’s dark chocolate bars)
  • Whipping Cream

To make the cheesecake filling. ( It is so easy I didn’t even take pictures mostly because I forgot but still….)
Mix 2 packages of cream cheese with one can of sweetened condensed milk. I just beat with my hand mixer until well blended. Chill at least an hour but this is a great make ahead so you can make a day or more in advance. This will make enough filling for about 4 6 oz servings.

While your filling is chilling, make your graham cracker crumbs and the dark chocolate ganache.

For the crumb layer, crush graham crackers in food processor or you can break up and put in a large plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Mix with a little melted butter.

Chocolate Ganache

For the ganache, heat 1/3 C whipping cream in microwave until hot but not boiling. Break dark chocolate bars into bowl, pour whipping cream over, stir to blend and let cool.

I chilled my glasses but you don’t have to. Starting with the crumbs, spoon into glasses  followed by a layer of the ganache and then the cream cheese filling.

Repeat and top with sliced strawberries. This is also fun to do in shot glasses for a dessert buffet.
