Nothing oozes more romance than a chocolate covered strawberry… Except maybe a Chocolate Dipped Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!
ABOUT THE NO-BAKE GRAHAM CRACKER CRUST:
I made this recipe so that the entire dessert can be “no-bake”, including the graham cracker crust. It only takes 3 ingredients. Graham crackers, sugar, and butter. Combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter together then pack the mixture into the bottom of the pans.
THE FILLING FOR THE NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE WITH GELATIN:
ABOUT THE GELATIN:
These individual no-bake cheesecakes need the support of gelatin. It is really easy to work with gelatin but I want to give you some tips.
A really important step when you work with gelatin is to let it bloom. Blooming gelatin is simply the process of softening the gelatin in liquid. When the gelatin granules sit in water, they absorb the water and get larger, or bloom. After the gelatin absorbs water and gets soft, it will dissolve easily when you heat it up.
It only takes about 20 seconds in the microwave to dissolve the gelatin and turn it into liquid. If you heat it up and get it nice and thin then let it sit for too long it will solidify into a firm, clear jello. It is ok if that happens. If it sits too long and gets firm before you put it in the cheesecake mixture then just give it another blitz in the microwave.
