Hi all, Carol from The Answer Is Chocolate here sharing a dessert that is perfect for Labor Day or any time. These are super easy to make and the best part is you don’t even have to turn on the oven.
- 2 Pkg Cream Cheese
- 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Graham Crackers (I used Honey Maid and used one sleeve from the box)
- Dark Chocolate (I used 3 regular sized Hershey’s dark chocolate bars)
- Whipping Cream
The cheesecake filling is simple. Mix 2 packages of cream cheese with one can of sweetened condensed milk; beat with hand mixer until well blended. Chill at least an hour but this is also a great make ahead so you can make it a day or more in advance. This will make enough filling for about 4 6 oz servings. I’m seeing a lot of mini desserts served in shot glasses and this would easily adapt to that.
While your filling is chilling, make your graham cracker crumbs , the dark chocolate ganache and slice strawberries.
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.
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, ending with the sliced strawberries.
