It’s From a Box, Shhh Don’t Tell…

Lots of things come in boxes: Nike SB’s, Trivial Pursuit and if you’re on a diet-your lunch. But none of these compare in both quality and taste to JELL-O’s No-Bake Desserts. JELL-O has found a way to make your life easier, whether you want Cherry Cheesecake, Home style Cheesecake, Real Cheesecake (as opposed to Fake I assume…), or Strawberry Cheesecake.

If none of those appeal to you (although I can’t see how they wouldn’t) JELL-O also packages Double Chocolate Cheesecake, Oreo Cheesecake, Peanut Butter Cup Squares, and Pumpkin Pie.

My No-Bake Cheesecake of choice is the Home Style Cheesecake. While Cherry Cheesecake is a cheesecake with good intentions, it is nothing more than Home Syle Cheesecake with an extra package of gooey, not so appealing, cherry preserves to pour on top. And not going to lie, the “Real” Cheesecake’s name alone frightens me slightly. The Peanut Butter Cup Squares are also a personal favorite, although I am known for my unhealthy addiction to peanut butter, so that may sway my opinion!

Rather than no-bake (I couldn’t think of a word to describe baking without actually baking) your cheesecake in a cake shape, smaller, cupcake cheesecakes are much easier for guests to eat – just make sure to use cupcake liners or else the graham cracker crust could get pretty crumbly!

If you really want to feel like you had a part in the deliciousness that is these cheesecakes, you can add your own special touch on top. Whether it’s strawberries, cherries, M&M’s, chocolate, or sprinkles, you can’t go wrong with these No-Bake delectable.
