Cheesecake is a dessert best consumed with a hot coffee and a reading of the afternoon news. Recently, I got crazy over jars – breakfast jars, lunch jars, dessert jars. You name it, I have done it. When I went to buy jars from the same shop, the cashier said to me that there has been an increase in sales for jars recently. Of course, I am definitely their top customer for jars sale!
Hazelnut Rocky Road Cheesecake Jars is a super simple recipe that is easy to make (no oven is needed!) and is perfect for entertaining during the holidays. Nutella was added into PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese which gave a nutty and smooth creaminess, complemented with contrasting crust from the chocolate crumbs. We have accessorized it with cherries, but you can easily substitute it with any other favourite fruits of yours. This recipe is a keeper because it is tasty and easy. Till date, I have made it at least four times!
- 1 ¼ cups chocolate biscuit crumbs
- 80g butter, melted
- 24 Pascal Marshmallows, halved
- 1 cup roasted hazelnut, roughly chopped
- ½ cup glace cherries, halved
- 500g PHILADELPHIA Block Cream Cheese, softened
- ¼ cup castor sugar
- 1 cup KRAFT Crunchy Hazelnut Spread
- 1 cup cream
- Combine the crumbs and butter then spoon into the base of 6 mason jars. Combine the marshmallows, hazelnuts and cherries then spoon half of the mixture over the crumb base.
- Beat the PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth, add the hazelnut spread and beat until combined. Pour in the cream then beat until smooth and a little thickened.
- Spoon or pipe the PHILLY mixture evenly into the mason jars then chill for 1 hour or until required. Top with the remaining marshmallows, nuts and cherries just prior to serving.
My best friend doesn’t have an oven in her house and she is always looking for a non-bake cheesecake. This Blueberry Lemon Swirl Cheesecake recipe came just right in time! Both of us were excited to try it together. Coincidentally, the supermarket has fresh supplies of blueberries. When the blueberries are smothered in the sweet and tangy lemon butter and eaten with the cream cheese filling, it makes a stunning dessert. Can’t wait to dig in!
