When you're craving cheesecake but only want a few bites - small batch no bake Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Dip made with homemade cherry pie filling

I’m back at it again with my cheesecake obsession. The best thing about cheesecake is it’s a blank canvas for any flavor imaginable – German chocolate cheesecake, banana split cheesecake, even a savory Irish cheese cheesecake. Since it’s pretty much been in the 90s these past few weeks (not like it’s summer or anything…), I didn’t want to turn on my oven for dessert; I already turned my oven on for dinner and could hear my air conditioner telling me it was too much. Luckily there’s this invention called no bake desserts where you can have your cheesecake and eat it too without turning your kitchen into a hot box.

Last month I had about 5 pounds of freshly picked sour cherries to use. I ended up freezing a good bit of them, but before I did I was in the mood for Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Dip. I love making cheesecake dips for two reasons: 1 – they are a no bake dessert, which means I don’t have to turn on the oven in the summer and 2 -with this small batch recipe, I can make just enough cheesecake to satisfy my craving without going overboard. What you see in the photos is how much dip I made. Even though I divided it between two bowls, the dip is rich enough you can get four servings out of it.

Happy (belated) National Ice Cream Day! Technically it was yesterday, but since July is ice cream month, I’m game to continuing the celebration. There are many ways to celebrate – homemade ice cream, store bought ice cream, milkshakes, ice cream sandwiches, ice cream cake, the list goes on. The easiest way to celebrate (besides digging into a pint with a spoon) is with an ice cream float. Two scoops of ice cream, some soda, and you have yourself an easy dessert in minutes. Of course there’s the traditional root beer float, but you can change up the flavors with Vanilla Bean Cream Soda Floats or Lemon Drop Cream Soda. Today I’m bringing you another flavor, one that screams summer – Blueberry Cream Soda Floats. We’re talking two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream and homemade blueberry soda made with blueberry syrup and seltzer. I’ve never been blueberry picking before, but this would be the first thing you’d want to make after a hot day in the sun. Summer in a glass, extra cold.
