Are you looking for a super easy, yet delicious dessert that is sure to impress? Then, I sure do believe this is one that you’ll want to give a try! And soon!
As you know, I’m working with Reynolds Kitchens and I have to tell you that I do not remember a time that their products have not been used in my grandmothers’, mother’s, or even in my kitchen!
Reynolds Wrap® Aluminum Foil has been saving time in the kitchen since 1947. From grilling to freezing and everything in-between, Reynolds Wrap has provided kitchen miracles for 70 years. I know that at my house, we use it for lining baking pans and covering dishes, making packets for the grill or oven, storing leftover foods for the freezer and refrigerator and so much more!
To celebrate their 70th Anniversary, they asked me to put an updated spin on one of their older recipes. I adapted their Ring Around the Berries recipe from the 1970’s into this simple and scrumptious No Bake Chocolate Wafer Cheesecake recipe.
If you love cheesecake, then this no bake cheesecake recipe is something I think you’ll absolutely adore!
To make this no bake cheesecake, start by lining a baking sheet pan with a 30-inch length of Heavy Duty Reynolds Wrap lengthwise. Then, place a second 30-inch length perpendicular to the first sheet to form a + on the baking sheet pan.
Next, mark an 8-inch circle on the top layer of Reynolds Wrap and set the baking sheet pan aside.
Next, add your cream cheese to a large, cold mixing bowl. Whip the cream cheese until fluffy. Add 6 tablespoons of confectioners sugar and the vanilla extract, continuing to whip until well combined. Then, slowly add your whipping cream as you continue to whip to combine. Continue to whip the cheesecake mixture until all is well combined, is light and fluffy and holds a firm peak.
I like to add my cheesecake mixture to a piping bag fitted with a 1M star tip, but you can also just spread the mixture over your pre-marked circle with spoon.
Top the circle of cheesecake with 11 chocolate wafers. Top each of the chocolate wafers with another dollop of the cheesecake mixture, followed by another chocolate wafer.
You’ll continue to repeat this process until you have a 5 layers of chocolate wafers, ending with a final dollop of the cheesecake mixture.
Next, I like to add a inner circle of the cheesecake mixture inside the ring of chocolate wafers as well as a dollop of the mixture between each of the stacks of the chocolate wafers on the outside of the ring of my cheesecake.
At this point, you enclose it with the loose edges of the Reynolds Wrap, taking care not to touch the cheesecake as you do so. Then, place the entire baking sheet pan into the freezer for at least 30 minutes. You’ll then remove it about 15 minutes before ready to serve for adding your fresh berries and topping with a dusting of confectioners sugar.
The most time consuming part of making this no bake cheesecake recipe is preparing the cheesecake mixture and the stacking. Now, that only takes all of about 10 minutes, but I have a secret for ya. Once you’ve completed the stacking and have it well-enclosed in the Reynolds Wrap, you can leave this no bake cheesecake in the freezer for up to 2 months!
Yes! Talk about a wonderful make-ahead dessert!
When ready to serve, simply remove the no bake cheesecake from the freezer, unwrap, carefully transfer the top layer of Reynolds Wrap to a cake stand or plate for serving, add your fresh berries to the center of the cheesecake ring and then top it all off with a dusting of confectioners sugar. Voila!
How easy is that? A no bake cheesecake recipe that everyone will love! And, it doesn’t hurt that it is a stunner, does it?
