Valentine's Cheesecakes

I'm not really the kind of person that needs a special occasion before I'll make something sinfully delicious, but if I did, Valentine's Day would be it. It's the perfect occasion to make something sweet for someone special.

I first made these cheesecakes for Sean last Valentine's Day, but I completely forgot to share the recipe for them. He loved them so much that I thought I would make them again this year (and actually write a post about them this time!).




No Bake Oreo and Raspberry Cheesecakes

15 Oreo cookies, roughly chopped
225g (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
400ml (13 ounces) fresh cream, whipped (you can use cool whip, but I prefer freshly whipped cream)
1 punnet of raspberries
8 small jars (I used baby food jars and they were perfect)

1. Coarsely chop the cookies and set them aside.

2. Beat the cream cheese, sugar & vanilla with an electric mixer and set aside.

3. Gently stir in 2/3's of the whipped cream and 3/4′s of the chopped cookies.

4. Half fill each of the jars with the cheesecake mixture, add a layer of raspberries and then top with the remaining cheesecake mix.

5. Spoon the left over whipped cream into a piping bag and add a swirl of cream to the top of each jar. Sprinkle with left over oreos.

6. Refrigerate for at least four hours or until firm.

These are so yummy and the raspberries are the perfect partner for the sweet cheesecake flavors, Enjoy!!

    1. Hi Jenn, they were just some jars I picked up at my local Coles (in Australia), my toddler was well past the baby food stage when I saw them, but I couldn't resist buying them anyway!

  11. These look beautiful Tamsyn! This is exactly what I'm craving right now. I love that they're mini (although knowing me, I'd probably eat 2!) I saw this on Project Inspire and had to come check it out.
