Can you believe that spring is right around the corner?? I’ve been busy in the kitchen working on all kinds of delicious spring and summer recipes for you and I’ve got some amazingly delicious content coming your way soon that’s perfect for when the weather gets warmer. This Easy No Bake Mini Eggs Cheesecake is just the beginning of all my spring recipes and I’m so excited to be sharing it with you today!
I’ve shared so many of my favourite No Bake Cheesecakes with you already, like this Mint Chocolate Chip No Bake Cheesecake, and this Strawberry Swirl No Bake Cheesecake. This Easy No Bake Mini Eggs Cheesecake uses the same no-fail no-bake cheesecake method, so I thought it would be a good idea to share some basic tips for helping your no bake cheesecakes set:
- Use full fat cream cheese. Low fat cream cheese has a higher water content and therefore liquifies more at room temperature than regular full fat cream cheese does. Using full fat cream cheese will help keep your no bake cheesecake firm and help it slice cleanly.
- Use whipped cream whipped to stiff peaks. Under-whipped cream can be too liquid-y and therefore prevent the cheesecake from setting.
- Set the cheesecake in the fridge first, and then the freezer for best results. My no bake cheesecakes always turn out best when the chill for 6-8 hours in the fridge and then spend 3-4 hours in the freezer to firm up for those gorgeous, clean slices.
- Don’t add too many extra ingredients. Too many chunks of chocolate, fruit, or, in this case, Mini Eggs, can prevent the cheesecake from setting properly and make it more difficult to slice cleanly. Be sure to use only what the recipe calls for.
