This was my favorite recipe of the event! A HUGE hit, I think I’ve eaten an entire batch myself in the last few days (I made a quadruple batch)! To add a nice depth to the flavor I like to use a mixture of Nilla wafers and Ginger snaps instead of just graham crackers. Sometimes I like to add ground nuts as well… oh and maybe a touch of cinnamon.
Cake Batter & Sprinkles No Bake Cheesecake
- 3/4 C Nilla wafers crushed
- 1/4 C Ginger snaps crushed
- 4 oz. butter melted
- 1 8 oz. block cream cheese, softened
- 4 Tbsp. butter softened
- 3/4 C Cake Mix
- 1/4 C milk
- 1 8 oz. tub frozen whipped cream topping, thawed
Stir together nilla wafers and ginger snaps and melted butter in a bowl until well combined.
Pour a few tablespoons into the bottom of your containers (I used Small Mason Jars) to make the crust. (You do not need to bake this.)
Beat the cream cheese and butter together in your mixer, with your whisks or cookie paddles, on medium speed until smooth and well blended.
Add in dry cake mix and milk and continue mixing until well blended.
Then gently fold in the whipped cream topping with a spatula.
I keep the filling in a gallon sized bag, and pipped it on top of the "crust" just before serving!
Sprinkle on the Sprinkles!
So this recipe is good with pretty much everything, do you have a favorite no bake topping? I’m thinking about creating more no bake cheesecake flavors, peanut butter anyone? Oreo? What would you like to see?
