No bake desserts are where it is at this summer. My newest dessert obsession are these cute little parfaits. Hot temperatures outside have me wanting to keep the oven off. Most days anyway…
There are days when the bananas on the counter are beyond ripe, and I get the itch to bake this tropical banana bread. But for now the parfaits are where it is at.
I hope you are ready for a few fun creations over the next few weeks because I may have gone a little overboard making tiny cups of cheesecake goodness!
You may remember a while ago that I said I made a bunch of desserts for some lunches at one of the local schools. If you don’t remember, now you know.
Anyway, this no fail orange creamsicle fudge and some sugar cookie bars were the things I made for the first day. Quick and easy desserts that can be made in one pan are the best to make for a crowd.
Cute little cups of cheesecake are always a hit when I make them. So, I knew I wanted to make some no bake parfaits for one of the lunches. As I was explaining the few parfait ideas I had to my husband, he asked if I could make one per teacher. Just a mere 60 cups!
My first thought was sure thing. It’s just cookie crumbs and layers of no bake cheesecake. How hard can that be?
Well, it might have been easy if we were just making one flavor. But because I had the brilliant idea to make FOUR different kinds, it took a little longer than I expected. There were pans to wash, cream cheese to soften, Cool Whip to pipe, and little fun decorations to put on each one. So, it became an all night ordeal.
Don’t let that scare you away from making ONE batch of cheesecake parfaits though. One single batch will take you less than 30 minutes. Promise!
I love getting inspiration for my crazy desserts from all over the place. The idea for these little no bake mocha mint cheesecake parfaits came from the new drink at the coffee shop. Yup, if you frequent Starbucks at all, you have seen this flavor combo already. Mocha and mint is a refreshing flavor combo on a hot, summer day!
You can find these little disposable plastic cups at Walmart in the paper plate and cup aisle. They also come with a lid, so you can make and take them to parties and picnics easily. Just add the Cool Whip and toppings when you get there, or leave them off for an easy to grab sweet treat.
If you are still looking for some fun and easy treats for summer picnics, here are a few recipes from some of my friends that I can’t wait to try. This no bake cherry cheesecake in a jar is perfect because I’m in love with food in jars right now! Have you seen or tried this no bake mint chip lush? The creamy layers are calling out to me. And then there are these Nutella no bake bars. She totally had me at Nutella, so I need a batch of these right away.
