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.
