No Bake Creamsicle Cheesecake Jars

No-Bake Creamsicle Cheesecake Jars

Happy Saturday! The weather here in Florida has been a bit gloomy lately so I thought to myself, how can I brighten up the day? Sunny, vibrant oranges should do the trick! And what better way to treat yourself on the weekend with an extra-special dessert? Hence, these No-Bake Creamsicle Cheesecake Jars were developed!

These jarred desserts are great for a summer picnic. Pack them in a cooler and go sit outside and enjoy the nice weather (if the weather where you are isn’t as gloomy as it’s been here). These are made with some easy to find ingredients like butter, Jell-O, cream cheese, and powdered sugar (I used Wholesome Organic Powdered Sugar).

Speaking of powdered sugar, I’d like to make a mention of Wholesome’s Sweet Relief Baking Pack. Proceeds from the sale of each of these discounted baking bundles will be donated to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Order yours today!

Have a beautiful, bright weekend, everyone!

    This was delicious! Next time I might double the cream cheese mix to make it a bit more cheesecake-like. And I might make in a pie dish because I’m lazy! This one is a win and I can’t wait to try with other jello flavors like lemon or cherry!
