Green Mint Chocolate Cheesecake – NO BAKE
This would be a great dessert for St. Patrick’s Day…..or any other time of the year! If you love mint chocolate chip, this cheesecake is for you. Best part………it’s a “no bake” cheesecake. AND it tastes like Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.
“No Bake” cheesecakes are my fav for a couple of reasons. One, they’re so much quicker and easier to make than it’s counterpart “the Baked Cheesecake”. Two, if you don’t want to heat up your kitchen or maybe you’re oven is already in use, you don’t need it. And three and the most important reason, I prefer the texture “light and fluffy” over the oven baked which is a little more dense.
Don’t get me wrong….I still love the baked cheesecakes as well. Just not as much.
For this GREEN Mint Chocolate Cheesecake, you will need a graham cracker crust, cream cheese, cool whip and Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Mint Morsels found on the baking isle. Plus a few more ingredients. See…
The morsels can be crushed up if you prefer them smaller, or save some and decorate the top of the cheesecake with them.
Oh…and guess what! I added peppermint essential oils in this cheesecake too. Best way to flavor them in my opinion. You don’t need but one little drop of peppermint essential oil to flavor this. The green comes from food coloring just to be a little more festive.
