I recently went to a craft fair and bought a powdered mix for no-bake cheese cake. You add your own cream cheese and whipped topping. Does anyone know what goes into the mix? I’m sure it will be cheaper to make the mix at home than to buy it. The package lists Sugar, artificial flavoring, and food starch as the ingredients. I’d like to put the mixes in jars and give as Christmas gifts.
here are two recipes that I have - and the third recipe is one that my girlfriend made for her daughter’s bridal shower
recipe 1 : DAIRY CHEESECAKE IN A BOWL
2 8 oz cream cheese
2 16 oz sour cream
2 boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Mix cream cheese and sour cream together until smooth. Add sugar and
pudding. Mix until smooth and chill. Serve in small bowls with your
favorite toppings in little bowls to be passed around for your guests
to choose from. This can also be poured into a prepared crust or mini crusts for individual cheesecakes.
recipe 2 : DAIRY NO BAKE CHEESECAKE
1 cup chocolate chips - white, chocolate, coffee, or a mixture
2 8 oz bars of cream cheese, softened
1 tub (8 oz) Smackin’ Good Whipped Topping (the Kosher Cool Whip),
1 prepared graham cracker crust (or a homemade version of either
graham crackers or crushed Lieber’s Oreo type cookies)
Melt chip on low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and
add cream cheese blocks, again stirring until smooth. Fold in whip,
pour into crusts and refrigerate. Serve when cold.
recipe 3 : NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE
2 boxes Jello no bake cheesecake mix
2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 (16-20 oz.) Cool Whip
Prepare large springform pan with crumbs as directed on cheesecake mix. Set aside.
Prepare 2 packages of no-bake cheesecake as directed on box, but before pouring in prepared pan, add 16 oz. cream cheese and Cool Whip. Mix all ingredients until well blended. Pour into prepared pan. Chill overnight.
