Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding Dessert
You all must try this chocolate cheesecake pudding dessert! It’s no-bake which means it’s your best friend in the summer. The hotter-than-usual summer we’re experiencing has me avoiding the oven like the plague.
Although I did break down last week and made a batch of cream scones. I finally got to watch the last season of Downton Abbey and I couldn’t resist!
Today I’m sharing a recipe using my favorite cheese of all time: cream cheese. I never considered myself a cheese fanatic until I realized I put it on or in nearly everything! It’s one of those relationships that turned into love after years of deep friendship and respect.
I especially love how versatile cream cheese is. It can be used in a sweet or savory dish, hot or cold, firm or creamy. It’s soft and fresh with a slight tang that I find completely addicting.
This no-bake dessert is a cross between chocolate cream pie and cheesecake. It starts with a graham cracker crust so you know it’s going to be good. I haven’t met a graham cracker dessert I don’t like!
Fudgy chocolate pudding is blended with cream cheese then covered with whipped topping. It’s a layered dessert that everyone loves. And if you’re an Oreo fan, you must try my version with vanilla pudding which we call Oreo Cake!
The cream cheese gives it a slight richness like cheesecake, and at the same time keeps the dessert from being too sweet. Isn’t cream cheese amazing? Be sure to use well-softened cream cheese to avoid any lumps.
